Usher Has 2 Sons with Ex-Wife Tameka Foster and They Look Just like Their R&B Singer Dad
The "Confession" coroner, Usher Raymond, has two young boys with his former wife and celebrity stylist, Tameka Foster, and they are nothing but his spitting image.
Usher has had to appear in a courthouse several times over the custody of his sons after his split from his ex-wife, Tameka, but that did not contest with the love he possesses for his kids.
It is, in fact, the fatherly love that fuelled his drive to want a life with his children, Usher V and Naviyd Ely.
The Raymond boys are not only their father's pride, but they share his looks too. In celebrating his second son when he turned 10, the R & B singer updated his Instagram with a photoshoot of himself and the young blood.
The father-son twinned in similar outfits, and their looks were not only thing to notice from this gesture, as the father of two expressively poured out his wishes and thoughts for the birthday boy.
Usher did not try to mince words when describing Navyid's flaws and perfections. He went on to describe the 10-year-old as a reminder of his younger self on character traits. He wrote,
"One thing everybody looks for, everybody can appreciate, and everybody needs from time to time. You are that for me , and then some."

I can remember when I turned 11 (forever ago) it was the beginning of me understanding that I had began to grow up and that I needed to care about somethin’.... Bad breath, hygiene, the use of deodorant, a career, other people, how I treated them, and what mattered...at least to me. I began to understand that if I were to be great at anything I’d have to start somewhere, with somethin. The way I carried myself would speak to who I was and what my life would look like. Sure...you got your plate full with things that really matter, like Pokémon cards, V bucks, GameStop cards, Fortnite, Tom Clancy and homework. “Priorities” Know this Son...I love the U you are. I wish you passion for what you love and hopes that you have compassion for others. Thank you for picking me as your dad and coming to me when you did. Thank you to your mother for delivering you and the hospital and hands that handled you....You gotta believe in U more than anybody. If you don’t believe, NO ONE WILL. #HappyBirthday #URV
Navyid's brother also got as much love from their father. On his 11th birthday, the singer charged Usher V to take up the responsibility of being himself, and he told the world just how much he appreciated the introduction to fatherhood via the birth of his oldest child.
Usher's parenting skills are undoubtedly top-notch as he does everything to encourage his kids no matter their age.

Pur·pose /ˈpərpəs/ noun the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists. = My Sons (Darrin, Ryan, Kile, Usher, Naviyd) A decade ago I wrote a piece about my sons and I coined the phrase “Heartbeats” in reference to them. No term to date has been more befitting. All Five of my Heartbeats are my absolute reaSONS! HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to all moms that share in this sentiment♥️💐 Thank you @robertector for capturing us for a decade as well. ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️ #MyHeartbeats #FiveHeartbeats #BoyMom #Love
In 2009, during advocacy for Boys & Girls Clubs of America, the father of two shared how his older son takes after his personality and how he wishes Usher V finds passion in whatever career choice he chooses in the future.
Tameka Foster is also a proud parent like her ex-husband, and at any given opportunity, celebrates her little ninjas.
Usher and Tameka went their separate ways in 2009 after a two-year marriage, but have maintained cordiality for their boys. Last year, Tameka on her Instagram page, made and posted a collage of Usher's images in celebration of his birthday.
The mother of two wrote a lengthy message in celebration of her former husband's birthday, and fans of the "U Gat It" singer, believed it was an "I miss you" sign.
Although the award-winning musician is married to his longtime beau, Grace Miguel, both Usher and the mother of his sons are doing fine parenting their boys.
