“Clearing the air..@mscrystalrenay and I are ENGAGED to be married next year. And yes we are expecting. #FromTheHorsesMouth,” he tweeted after reports claimed he was already married.

The “Miss Independent" singer, 35, is already dad to two kids, daughter Madilyn Grace and son Mason Evan, with his ex-fiancee, Moynetta Shaw. The Atlanta Exes star had been vocal about getting her tubes tied while with Ne-Yo on the VH1 show. In his series of tweets on Monday, Ne-Yo explained that they made the decision together prior to splitting in 2013. 

“Clearing the air..I didn't force Mo to tie her tubes. Mutual decision. And the procedure is reversible. #SheCanHaveKids #FromTheHorsesMouth,” he also informed fans.
