Crystal Renay is truly Ne-Yo's "One in a Million." The two tied the knot on Saturday at Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, outside of L.A.

"We can't wait to start our life together," Ne-Yo said in an interview with People magazine. "We're looking forward to just being each others' best friend."

Crystal Renay and Ne-Yo started dating after they met for a possible collaboration on his 2015 album, "Non-Fiction." He proposed last summer.

"I kind of knew right away," he says. "From that first encounter, I knew there was something different about her, something special."

Ne-Yo and Crystal Renay will soon welcome their child into the world, too. While he is dad to daughter Madilyn Grace and son Mason Evan, from a previous relationship, this will be the first child for the couple.

Crystal Renay was mindful of her pregnancy when picking out her wedding dress.

"When I went to my first fitting, I had actually just found out the day before that I was pregnant, so from the beginning of the whole dress process, we knew that it would be a growing belly," she says.

Despite their excitement over becoming husband and wife, there were some nerves ahead of their nuptials.

"I'm gonna be honest: I'm nine months pregnant--I'm nervous about falling on my face!" Crystal Renay said the day before the wedding.

Ne-Yo says this marriage will last forever.

"This is big for me. I'm not doing this again, so I'm happy that my family and friends are able to be there to share this moment with us," he says. "We're human being, so we're gonna bump heads on different things, but we've agreed that this is gonna be a marriage that lasts."

This is such an exciting time for Crystal Renay and Ne-Yo. From their wedding yesterday to welcoming their child in the very near future, it seems like a happy life is on track for the couple.
