Ne-Yo hasn`t been getting enough sleep
The `Beautiful Monster` singer`s partner Monyetta Shaw gave birth to their daughter Madilyn two months ago and the new arrival has been disrupting his nightly rest.
He said: "It`s just less and less opportunity to sleep. You know, I don`t see the baby as much as I would like. It`s beautiful but difficult."
The 31-year-old star - whose real name is Shaffer Smith - also admitted he has not yet made plans for Valentine`s Day (14.02.11) with Monyetta but doesn`t expect he will plan anything spectacular.
He told the New York Post newspaper: "I haven`t thought about it yet. This might be the most unromantic Valentine`s Day I ever had."
After he became a father to Madilyn - who was born two months prematurely - Ne-Yo claimed he had never known a love like it before.
He said: "I`ve been in love before but this feels like nothing I`ve ever felt. Like, I`m in love for the first time."
The `So-Sick` hitmaker had confessed before his daughter`s arrival that he felt "nervous" about becoming a parent.
He said: "I`m so excited and nervous. It`s amazing - I`m bringing another life into the world. But at the same time, I`m like, `Oh c**p, I`m responsible for another human being.`
"I don`t even buy my own underwear, where am I going to find his? But I`m so looking forward to it."
