Rapper Ne-Yo is bald and proud

London: R&B star Ne-Yo says that after years of trying to hide his balding head, he has accepted it.

The chart-topper said that he is proud of his bald head after years of wearing hats to cover up his shiny pate, reported Sun online.

"My hair starting thinning when I was 13. It runs in the family. I initially started wearing hats to cover up my shame. Now I don`t give a damn. I can be sexy without hair," said the `Miss Independent` hitmaker.

The 30-year-old singer who is expecting his first child with girlfriend Monyetta Shaw, said that impending fatherhood has made him look at life in a new way.

I am 30 and I do have my first child on the way, and I’m very, very, very excited about that. It’s a New Year’s baby and I’m just in a really good place right now," he had
