Ne-Yo's baby son is discharged from hospital

Ne-Yo's baby son has been discharged from hospital.

The 'Miss Independent' hitmaker and his wife Crystal Smith have been beside themselves with worry after their seven-month-old child Shaffer Chimere Smith Jr. - also known as SJ - was rushed to the medical centre on Thursday (27.10.16).

However, after hours of being seen by doctors, the little one is now resting up at home and the brunette beauty has taken the time to praise her beau for standing by her side through it all.

Taking to her Instagram account on Friday (28.10.16), she said:

"Ain't no man like the one I got! It's super important to have a strong partner by your side When life throws you into the worst situation you could ever imagine yourself in. I thank God for this man! I could never have gotten through the past 48 without you! I love you and how much you love our beautiful family. (sic)"

It's not known what was wrong with little SJ but Crystal - who married Ne-Yo earlier this year - can't believe how brave he is.

Alongside a photograph of the youngster looking up at his father from his hospital bed, she wrote: "You are so strong and such a fighter. Nothing is going to slow you down!

"Mommy and daddy are right here baby! We aren't going to let anything happen to you!!! In this moment my son has proven to be stronger than me already. We love you so much Pooda! We Can't wait to take you home finally (sic)."

The couple first met when Ne-Yo contacted Crystal about working together on a short film for his album, and although she was two hours late, it was love at first sight.

As well as SJ, the 37-year-old hunk also has Madilyn, five, and four-year-old son Mason with ex-girlfriend Monyetta Shaw.
