Ne-Yo has announced that he and his longtime girlfriend Monyetta Shaw are engaged, and are expecting another baby on the way!

Ne-Yo became a first-time father back in November 2010 when Shaw gave birth to their first child together, daughter Madilyn Grace. And now, the couple’s reps have confirmed to US Weekly that the pair will become parents to another child very soon. (Very soon as in next month — October — soon!)

Gushing to about his first-born Madilyn (aka “Maddie”), Ne-Yo said at his annual Compound Foundation benefit held last Wednesday in New York City:

“[Maddie]‘s been trying to walk since she was two months old. She’ll grab your hands and pull herself up and do a little wobble dance. She likes scooting along the wall. She moves really fast.

“She definitely knows her worth — which is a beautiful thing. That’s something I’ve tried to instill in her from day one: understand that you are a Godsend,” explains Ne-Yo. You’re an absolute angel and people are supposed to treat you that way. She’s extremely diva even at 10 months.”

Congrats to Ne-Yo and Monyetta on the engagement and baby number 2!!!
