Ne-Yo is the proud husband-and has been for three years!-of model and former reality TV star Crystal Smith (ne Renay).

Sound familiar? That might be because Crystal made headlines for her not-so-great behavior (read: nearly got into a physical fight) during her time on E!'s Platinum Life. Or it might because you've seen her name in one of Ne-Yo's many lovey-dovey Instagram posts and captions.

Most recently, the Grammy award winner shared a shot in which he's tightly hugging his wife with the caption, "Imytoperiod. @itscrystalsmith Thank you for putting up with me. It can be difficult sometimes, I know."

All together now: awwwww.

Clearly this duo has nothing but heart eyes for each other. But you're probably wondering who is this Crystal Smith-and how did she sway him away from being so sick of love songs!?

Here's what you need to know about Ne-Yo's wife:

They met through work.

The year was 2015, and Ne-Yo was working on his album Non-Fiction. Since he wanted to shoot a short film with the album, he met with Crystal to discuss her potentially modeling in it. "Our meeting was initially strictly business," the singer-dancer told People . Although Crystal arrived two hours late (apparently she was busy "trying to get info on [Ne-Yo]" to figure out it it was really going to be about business or "if [he] was some creep"), the two quickly hit it off and started "getting to know each other." Two weeks later, the pair began dating and, as Ne-Yo revealed to People , "It's pretty much been bliss ever since then, I can't lie."

Her honesty inspired some of Ne-Yo's music.

In the very beginning of their relationship, Crystal "laid out her dirty laundry," sharing details about her previous relationships, such as what worked, what didn't work, what she desires, etc., Ne-Yo told Essence . After that conversation, I had a laundry list of dos and donts in regard to being in a relationship with her, and I took that list and turned it into a song and that song is Good Man.

At first, Ne-Yo wasn't ready to settle down for Crystal.

Although he "kinda knew right away" that Crystal was the one for him, he says he was very much enjoying being a bachelor-and had been at that point for a year and a half, the artist told People . (Ne-Yo had been previously engaged to Monyetta Shaw, with whom he shares two children.) Ne-Yo says the spark with Crystal was undeniable, and he told People that she "threw a wrench in all my singleness."

Soon after, Ne-Yo proposed somewhat spontaneously-he didn't have any big plans or even a ring. "We were in the hotel room, and and we were talking: I love you, I cant live without you, that kind of thing. And I was just like, Well, why dont you f-ing marry me, then? and he was like, I dont have a ring, and I was like, Do I look like the type of girl that needs a ring to get proposed to?'" Crystal shared with People .

They got married in 2016.

The duo went all out for their L.A. nuptials, which included an 18-person wedding party, a 6-foot cake, and a Cinderella-esque carriage, among plenty of other glamorous elements, People reports. Crystal was 8 months pregnant at the time and still broke it down on the dance floor like a true bride boss.

Now, they're proud parents.

Ne-Yo's Instagram is filled with photos of his "#BlendedFamily," which includes four kiddos: two from his previous engagement-Mason Evan, 7, and Madilyn Grace, 8-and two with Crystal-Shaffer Chimere, 2, and Roman Alexander-Raj Smith, 10 months.

Crystal's Instagram has plenty adorable photos of her young sons, too. Still not enough cuteness for you? Good news! The boys have their very own account: @theesmithboys . 10/10 would recommend following.

She's Ne-Yo's biggest fan-and he's hers.

Crystal, along with her two kiddos and two step-children, joined her hubby at this year's NAACP Image Awards 2019, where Ne-Yo was honored. Sound like a big deal? That's because it is-just take it from Crystal, who shared a prime red carpet photo with the caption, "Congratulations on your NAACP honor babe! It's a big BIG thing ukay! I LOVE my FAMILY!!!" Meanwhile, over on Ne-Yo's feed, you'll find lots of lovey posts proclaiming his love and appreciation for his #1 .
