Ne-Yo, the Grammy Award-winning artist, has recently displayed his softer side on social media. In a series of captivating images, he proudly showcases his beautiful children.
Ne-Yo took to Instagram, sharing photos that capture heartwarming moments with his kids while preparing for a performance. The carousel includes a collection of pictures, concluding with two slides: one showcasing a traditional family pose, and the other revealing a more playful and silly side.
In the accompanying caption, Ne-Yo emphasizes that his role as a father holds utmost importance in his life.

My kids love me. And I’d die, kill, steal, whatever to make sure they never need for anything. The best thing I’ve ever done [love face emoji].”
