Usher and his girlfriend Jenn Goicoechea are expecting their first child together, E! News writes. According to reports, the couple was spotted outside of a Los Angeles studio on Monday (Aug. 31) and Goicoechea showed off her baby bump to photographers. A source “close to the couple” told Us Weekly that Usher and Goicoechea “are thrilled and very excited” to be parents.
The baby will be Usher and Goicoechea’s first child together. The R&B star also has two other children — Usher Raymond V and Naviyd — with his ex-wife Tameka Foster.
“I can remember when I turned 11 (forever ago),” Usher wrote on Instagram on his youngest son, Naviyd’s, birthday, before offering some fatherly advice.
“You remind me so much of myself, within that phase of my life,” he wrote. “Where I wanted everybody to be happy. You can’t make everybody happy, but what you can do is be happy yourself. No matter what it may look like, you can always make it better with your intentions.”
The exciting news arrives as Usher and Goicoechea prepare to celebrate their one-year anniversary as a couple. Usher and the Epic Records music executive were reportedly first seen together at the Hollywood Bowl last October and have been spotted at various A-list events since then.
After divorcing from Foster in 2009, Usher went on to marry Grace Miguel. The couple was together for almost 10 years — two of them married — but split up amicably in 2018.
“After much thought and consideration we have mutually decided to separate as a couple,” they said in a statement at the time. “We remain deeply connected, loving friends who will continue supporting each other through the next phases of our lives. The enormous amount of love and respect that we have for each other will only increase as we move forward.”
