Happy early birthday to Ne-Yo who received his big present earlier this week when he became a dad again! This past Monday (October 10), the singer-songwriter and his girlfriend, Monyetta Shaw, welcomed their second child to the world.

"Sal-u twit fam. If you are truly fam you'll help me welcome the heir to my throne, born OCT.9TH at 6 pounds, 10 ounces! Mason Evan Smith!" Ne-Yo tweeted today. Mason's arrival comes less than a year after big sister, Madilyn Grace. The new bundle of joy shares the same birth month as dad, who turns 32 on October 18.

"[Fatherhood] has been a ride, but I’m loving every minute of it,” Ne-Yo told PEOPLE  last month.

Ne-Yo is gearing up for another arrival in 2012 ... His new musical baby, 'The Cracks in Mr. Perfect.' He just announced the title this week after he performed 'Billie Jean' at the Michel Jackson Tribute in the U.K. “The album is based around, showing people that even thought I am a ‘celebrity,’ I’m a human being first,” he explained in regards to the title. The album is his follow-up release to his 'Libra Scale' album which hit stores late last year.

Congrats Ne-Yo!
