American singer, songwriter, NE-Yo has welcomed his fifth child. The singer's wife  Crystal Smith, shared the happy news on her Instagram page telling  that their new bundle of joy arrived four weeks early. Crystal uploaded a snap of their new little girl on her chest as they rested in hospital with music star Ne-Yo  beaming in the background.

The couple also said that they named their newborn Isabella Rose Smith and Crystal gushed that her "world is finally complete."

"Isabella Rose Smith!

"God said don’t make plans honey! She came 4 weeks early but right on time for mommy! Born at 11:11 am ( lucky lil lady) 5 lbs 7 oz of perfection My world is finally complete."

In February, overjoyed over the pregnancy Neyo Penned,

"Overjoyed to announce...the family is expanding...#Number5 #5thandFinal #blessingsonblessings @crystalsmith You ready baby? Let's go!" he captioned the sweet clip.

The couple already share Shaffer Chimere Jr, five, and Roman Alexander-Raj, two, while Ne-Yo also has Madilyn Grace, ten, and Mason Evan, nine, from a previous relationship.

Neyo also further  revealed that  last year that they were contemplating divorce - before quarantine brought them closer together and helped them heal as a couple.

"Before the quarantine happened, we were definitely talking divorce, and the quarantine forced us to sit still, block out the noise from the world — you know the world can get very, very loud, and we tend to let the world's opinion mean more in certain situations than it should."

Ne-Yo added that thanks to "blatantly, painfully, brutally honest" conversations, the couple are now going stronger than ever.

"We're actually stronger now than we were before," he shared, "Now we feel like we can really talk to each other."
