A celebration is in order for R&B singer and songwriter Ne-Yo. The “Closer” singer is engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Atlanta boutique owner Monyetta Shaw, and they are expecting their second child together, confirmed by her rep to US Weekly.

Ne-Yo, 31, welcomed his first daughter Madilyn Grace in November 2010, and was ecstatic to be a first-time father.

“She’s healthy and happy. Feels like I’m in luv for the first time,” Ne-Yo tweeted after her birth. “Welcoming that lil’ girl to the world last night defined for me what ‘willing to kill and die for’ truly means. My world, my life, all hers.”

According to sources, the second child is due next month. Congratulations to the couple! –Connie T.
