This was their first meeting which went well. They became friends and both were single; Ne-Yo for the past 1.5 years and Crystal for 3 years. Talking about that time, Ne-Yo told People Magazine:

“I kind of knew right away. From that first encounter, I knew there was something different about her, something special.”

Soon, their friendship blossomed into a romantic liaison.

The proposal two-times

Ne-Yo had proposed to his Lady Love twice. Once he proposed on the day after the night that he had a dream. This dream had frightened her and forced him to immediately admit his love for Crystal since he did not want to lose her.

With the Almighty’s Grace, everything went well. The function took place at the luxury Terranea Resort which overlooks the Pacific in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. This hotel is an hour’s drive from LA. It was chosen because Ne-Yo “wanted the feel of a destination without the travel”, he said.

It was an intimate affair with only 18 close relatives and friends as invitees. The bride looked beautiful in a white lace and chiffon wedding gown. She had draped her pregnant tummy with layers of frothy chiffon. She had donned a crystal tiara on her head and was seen carrying a large bouquet of white flowers. Ne-Yo wore a gray jacket with black details and black trousers. He had a white shirt underneath and a black bow tie. Both were elated to officially start their life journey together. There was a 6-foot cake with fairy-tale-like flowers to commemorate the event.

Their life together and Children

A son named Shaffer Jr. (PrinceSJ) was delivered in March 2016. The couple has been living a blissful and happy married life all along. In October 2017, they announced that Crystal is expecting her second child with Ne-Yo. Ne-Yo has two children from his first marriage to ex-Monyetta Shaw.
