American R&B singer, Shaffer Chimere Smith, better known by his stage name Ne-Yo married his pregnant fiancee, Crystal Renay in Rancho Palos Verdes, California on Saturday, February 20.
The 36-year-old singer tied the knot at the luxury Terranea Resort by the sea at a ceremony witnessed by family members and their closest friends.
Ne-Yo said: ”We can’t wait to start our life together. We’re looking forward to just being each others’ best friend.”
The American R&B singer wore a grey suit with black tie for the special occasion, while his expectant 26-year-old model bride who is already nine months pregnant wore a white gown that featured embellishments and sheer lace sleeves.
Ne-Yo first met his wife to discuss working together on his album Non-Fiction, which was released last year, and he admitted it was a case of love at first sight.
He told People: ”I kind of knew right away. From that first encounter, I knew there was something different about her, something special.”
