According to All Hip Hop, Ne-Yo was at a charity event for the Compound Foundation when he heard the news that Monyetta was in labor. He immediately left the event with his mother to be by her side. Later that night, he tweeted:
Much luv to my twit fam and everybody showin’ luv to my new addition!! She’s healthy and happy. Feels like I’m in luv for the first time. 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. Much love to my rider and my new lil’ rider. Life starts now……and I promise I’ll do my best or die tryin’. Love y’all!!
