When it comes to singing and songwriting, Ne-Yos got it in the bag.

The diaper bag, that is.

The 31-year-old "Closer" singer and girlfriend Monyetta Shaw welcomed daughter Madilyn Grace Smith, their first child together, last night in Atlanta.

"Much luv to my twit fam and everybody showin' luv to my new addition!!" Ne-Yo, whose real name is Shaffer Chimere Smith, tweeted Saturday. "She's healthy and happy. Feels like I'm in luv for the first time."

The child was due in January, so a baby shower that was planned for today is now taking place in the maternity ward, according to an Atlanta radio station.

Ne-Yo continued: "Much love to my rider and my new lil' rider. Life starts now......and I promise I'll do my best or die tryin'. Love y'all!!...Brand new baby, brand new album. Life is GOOD!!!! Nov. 22nd, around the corner!!!"

Nothing like a little plug thrown in with the birth announcement.
