Ne-Yo has become a father for a second time.

The 'Closer' hitmaker's fiancee Monyetta Shaw - with whom he has had an on/off relationship for years before announcing their engagement last month - gave birth to the couple's second child on Monday although the tot's name and gender have not been revealed.

Ne-Yo, 31, and boutique owner Monyetta already have an 11-month-old daughter Madilyn Grace and after her birth last year, the singer - real name Shaffer Chimere Smith - tweeted: "She's healthy and happy. Feels like I'm in luv for the first time (sic).

"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 (sic)."

The 'So Sick' star has previously said he would only ever consider marrying someone who is independent.

He said: "I don't want someone who's with me because she needs help paying the rent. My mom worked six jobs to make sure we never needed anything so that's the kind of woman I'll marry."
