Before welcoming a new child, Ne-Yo and Smith nearly ended their marriage last year. The couple separated in February 2020 and filed for a divorce the following month.
Smith, who has been married to the R&B singer since 2016, learned about her husband's divorce through celebrity tabloids. At that time, she said that she left due to relationship issues.
Several months after they separated, the estranged couple is back in each other's arms. Ne-Yo said that the stay-at-home orders due to the pandemic gave him the chance to get closer to Smith.

Amid the health crisis, Ne-Yo and Crystal have created fun moments with their children, including eating good food together at home and posting trendy videos on TikTok.
Coming back to her and to their family has been Ne-Yo's best decision. He said the pandemic has impacted his relationship with Smith adding that they love each other despite the difficult times.
