Congratulations to Ne-Yo and wife Crystal Smith! The 2018 Majic Summer Block Party artist and his wife welcomed a new addition to the family on Thursday as Roman Alexander-Raj Smith was born. It’s the couple’s second child.

Days ago, Crystal posted a sweet message on Instagram saying, “Just a few more days” before her new bundle of joy would be coming into the world.

And even though she though little Roman would be arriving later, the Creator and Roman himself had other plans as the baby boy was born at 2:11 p.m. on Thursday in Santa Monica, California.

“I had a ironclad birth plan and I was determined to do it my way. But God had other plans apparently,” Smith said. “A routine doctor’s visit on Thursday and I was rushed straight to the hospital and into surgery less than an hour later! Roman wasn’t doing well in my womb and had to be taken immediately or the doctors feared the worst. Scariest moments ever!!!”

Don’t miss Ne-Yo along with Tank, Fantasia, and Miguel at the Majic Summer Block Party next month at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavillion! Tickets are on sale now!
