RnB star Ne-Yo recently opened up about his fertility journey in an interview. 

Currently expecting his third child with wife Crystal Smith, the singer revealed that while he was keen to get the snip, his wife wasn't 100% sure.

"My plan was to get the surgery, but she was like, 'No, no, no, don't get the surgery because if we ever decide we do want any more kids then we can't do it'," he said, adding that they're long-term plan is to leave things up to divine intervention. 

"So, this last one is the plan, and then if God decides he wants us to have some more, I guess we'll have some more". 

Meanwhile, Ne-Yo - who also has two other children - previously admitted his marriage has been saved by the global pandemic. 

"Before the quarantine happened, we were definitely talking divorce and the quarantine forced us to sit still".
