“I’ll put it to you this way. I haven’t had any good, real sleep in the last three days,” Ne-Yo told Us on Saturday, June 16, just two days after his wife, Crystal Renay Williams, gave birth to their newborn baby boy.

And it’s safe to say he’s completely embracing his full house. “He makes four. I have four children now, three boys and a girl and I’m loving every minute of it,” the singer gushed. “I love being a dad. It’s fulfilling in a way that I honestly didn’t anticipate. My joy used to be being out on the road, moving around. Now I just want to be home with kids.”

Though there aren’t any current plans for baby No. 5, the supportive father of four reveals that “if wifey decides she wants to go through that again, I’m not gonna stand in her way.” He continued: “However, if she decided she didn’t want anymore and we were done right now, I’d be fine with that too.”

Williams announced the happy news of their baby’s arrival on Friday, June 15. “Born 6-14-18 at 2:11 pm 6pd and 15 ounces 19 inches long,” she shared on Instagram along with the reveal of his name, Roman Alexander-Raj Smith. “He’s so BEAUTIFUL 😍.”
