R&B singer Ne-Yo and his girlfriend Monyetta Shaw welcomed a baby girl into the world this weekend in Atlanta, Georgia.  This is the couple's first child together.

The baby was not due until January, about six weeks from now, but according to Ne-Yo's Twitter updates she is doing just fine!

"She's healthy and happy," Ne-Yo tweeted. "Feels like I'm in luv for the first time."

Ne-Yo got the call that Monyetta was in labor while at a charity event for the Ne-Yo Foundation.  He left the event immediately to be present for the birth of his baby daughter.
