Ne-Yo is to become a father again as he and girlfriend Monyetta Shaw are expecting their second child together this autumn.
The Miss Independent singer already has a 10-month-old daughter Madilyn Grace and told People he is loving fatherhood.
Ne-Yo gushed at his annual Compound Foundation benefit in Manhattan: "It has been a ride, but I'm loving every minute of it.
"She's been trying to walk since she was two months old.
"She'll grab your hands and pull herself up and do a little wobble dance. She likes scooting along the wall. She moves really fast."
But the 31-year-old singer and actor revealed his young daughter is already showing diva tendencies.
He said: "She definitely knows her worth - which is a beautiful thing. That's something I've tried to instil in her from day one: understand that you are a Godsend.You're an absolute angel and people are supposed to treat you that way. She's extremely diva even at 10 months.
"She's a growler right now. She'll only let you hold her a certain way."
And Ne-Yo revealed Maddie is yet to be a fan of his music.
He laughed: "Daddy loses out to Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. She loves the Hot Dog! song by They Might Be Giants. She knows two words: 'Dada' and 'hot dog'."
