Count the Smiths as the latest celebrity couple to reveal they’ve had a fruitful quarantine season.

The couple used the same Instagram video of Ne-Yo embracing Crystal, clad only in panties as he covered her breasts with one arm and stroked her swollen belly with the other hand. In Crystal’s post, the video played Major’s hit song “Why I Love You”.

“This is why I love you.. 💙💖💙” Crystal captioned her post.

Ne-Yo used the same footage for his post, but without music.

“Overjoyed to announce…
…the family is expanding…👶🏽!” Ne-Yo captioned his announcement. He included the hashtags #Number5❤️ #5thandFinal and #BlessingsOnBlessings🙏🏾

He also tagged his wife @itscrystalsmith 🥰🥰🥰 and added three blushing smileys surrounded by hearts.

“You ready baby?” he asked his wife, adding. ” Let’s go!”

This is great news for the Smiths, who nearly divorced in early 2020, before reconciling during the lockdown.

This weekend also marked the Smith’s 6th anniversary.

Ne-Yo surprised his wife with a romantic evening filled with flowers and candles.

Ironically last week Crystal hinted there might be a baby on the way — we just didn’t know it was already cooking!

The couple have two sons, SJ (Shaffer Jr.) and Roman. Ne-Yo also shares a daughter Madison (aka Maddie) and son Mason with his ex Monyetta Shaw.

Looks like the guys currently outnumber the girls 4 to 2 in the Smith household.

Do you think this time Crystal and Ne-Yo will have a girl?

There’s been a whole lot of babies made during this sheltering at home period. Summer Walker, Christina Milian, Victoria Monet, Nick Cannon, Taina and G Herbo are just a few we can think of. Who are we missing?

LaKeith Stanfield at Audi's Celebration For The 71st Emmys

LaKeith Stanfield is opening up about the toll his latest movie has taken on his mental health. 

Currently in theatres and streaming on HBO Max, Judas and the Black Messiah follows the story of Black Panther Party chairman Fred Hampton and William O’Neal, the FBI informant sent to infiltrate the group and gather intelligence on Hampton. LaKeith Stanfield plays the snitch in the critically acclaimed Ryan Coogler movie and revealed this week that he needed therapy after filming.

In an interview with Level, Stanfield said that even though his actions were pretend, they felt real as he went through the motions.

“In the scene where I had to poison him, a lot of it didn’t end up making it to the final cut, but we shot [me mixing it in] Kool-Aid, and I had to go through all those motions. With somebody like Daniel, who I just respect as a human and an artist, as Fred Hampton, it felt like I was actually poisoning Chairman Fred Hampton. One thing [co-star] Dominique Fishback mentioned to me is that your body doesn’t always differentiate the experience from your imagination. So sometimes your body thinks that’s real, everything you’re putting it through. It’s no wonder I’ve been feeling so stressed out and having panic attacks. I realized going forward before I step into something like that again, maybe have a therapist,” he explained. “I’ve found this really cool therapist. It’s great and perfect for me right now. Hopefully it continues to be the case. It’s helped me a lot. After doing press yesterday, I had another session and it was amazing. It helps you unlock things about yourself. It’s not even necessarily about the person that you’re doing therapy with, but like you said, perspectives and strategies and tools that you didn’t have access to before,” he added.

Stanfield is in great company, as far as famous Black men giving therapy a try — Michael B. Jordan, Jay-Z, Big Sean, and more have all gone public about counseling.

Get into Stanfield’s full interview with Level here. He also opens up about how the loss of his best friend affected his acting, what it was like to portray an “op,” and more.
