Congratulations are once again in store for Ne-Yo, who tied the knot with his fiancée, model Crystal Renay at Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif. on Saturday (Feb. 20).
“We can’t wait to start our life together,” the R&B crooner told PEOPLE. “We’re looking forward to just being each others’ best friend.”
The newlyweds met about a possible collaboration last year. Soon, they began dating and the R&B gentleman asked for her hand in marriage last summer, saying that he knew there “was something different about her, something special.”
“I do” came just before the couple said “hello” to their first child together. Renay is nine months pregnant with Ne-Yo’s third kid. He has a 5-year-old daughter, Madilyn Grace, and a 4-year-old son, Mason Evan, from a previous relationship with Monyetta Shaw.
“This is big for me,” Ne-Yo added. “I’m not doing this again, so I’m happy that my family and friends are able to be there to share this moment with us. We’re human beings, so we’re gonna bump heads on different things, but we’ve agreed that this is gonna be a marriage that lasts.”
Now I understand why Nothing else ever worked in my favor. You are the man I’ve dreamed of and you have given me the family My heart has longed for. The amount of love I have for you and our son is insurmountable and I am going to spend the rest of my life showing you that love… @Neyo *** #j3collection #16days
