On Tuesday (Oct. 12), the “U Got It Bad” singer took to Instagram to announce the arrival of his son. “Hi my name is Sire Castrello Raymond” he captioned a black and white image of the newborn. “I am the newest addition to the Raymond crew. I was born Sept. 29, 2021 at 6:42 pm weighing 7 lbs 13 oz. Hear me roar … A.K.A Ra Ra. [Baby Libra] Gang #demraymondboys.”
Back in May, the pair revealed that they were expecting their second child together. In June, Goicoechea showed off her growing baby bump on the red carpet for the iHeartRadio Music Awards, which Usher hosted.
Last September, the pair, who have been dating since 2019, welcomed their daughter Sovereign Bo Raymond. The Confessions singer shared a photo of himself holding her tiny finger to share the exciting news with his fans and followers. He also revealed how challenging it was to expect a newborn at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“It’s been a tough time for everybody; so [it’s] great to have this incredible news, this new arrival. [We’re] really anticipating it,” he said during an appearance on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” last year. “I think everybody’s had the opportunity to just take a beat back and realize what really matters in this time — it’s family. It is coming closer to your loved ones and appreciating the ones that you have while you have them.”
Usher previously expressed his excitement for the birth of his fourth child, sharing that he and his girlfriend “can’t wait” for their new addition. “I’m definitely enjoying this little baby boom of ours,” he said during an appearance on “Good Morning America.”
“This new addition to the family has just been exciting,” he added.
Congratulations to the happy couple. Check out Usher’s post below.
