*Ne-Yo is getting a pass from his baby’s mama, Monyette Shaw. She’s allowing the “Mirror” singer to keep sowing his oats and is not expecting him to commit to her.

He says he cannot commit to just one woman; he needs to explore and date other woman. So they will just remain friends despite her carrying his soon to be son or daughter.

“I have a friend. Not a girlfriend. She’s carrying my child but knows I can’t commit. She doesn’t mind other women,” he told Britain’s The Sun newspaper.

Ne-Yo also told the paper that he is looking forward to being a father and would like to have two children, a boy and a girl.

In 2005, he claimed to be the father of his then girlfriend’s son, but shortly thereafter found out that the kid was not his son.
