American singer and songwriter Usher and his girlfriend Jenn Goicoechea are expecting their first child as a couple and the singer's third, per Us Weekly's report. 


Singer and songwriter Usher Raymond IV is set to become a father for the third time after Us Weekly exclusively confirmed that his girlfriend, Jenn Goicoechea, is pregnant with their first child

Cameras spotted Usher and Goicoechea outside a production studio in Los Angeles on Monday, with her baby bump in sight. An insider source revealed to the online publication that the couple is delighted with the development.

When Goicoechea eventually puts to bed, the baby will be the third for the 41-year-old Usher who has two sons, Usher, 12, and Naviyd, 11, with his former wife, Tameka Foster. 

Usher separated from Foster in 2009 after which he married Grace Miguel, a native of Texas, in 2015. Their union also ended in divorce in 2018, with the couple mutually agreeing to end things. 


Though no one knows how long they have been dating, Usher and Goicochea were first linked as a couple in October 2019. This was after they were seen backstage during the Hollywood Bowl. 

Following his split from Foster, the singer and his former wife engaged in a lengthy court battle over their sons' custody. After the dust settled, they put their differences aside in their boys' best interest.

The singer does his best to keep his children and private life away from the spotlight. 


Usher is a doting father who is very much present in his sons' lives. He has been quarantining with the boys amid the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The singer showed how fast the boys had grown when he shared a then-and-now TikTok video with his fans. "Officialbck" spotted the video and reposted it on Instagram with the caption

"Usher's sons have grown up before our eyes. @usher #usher #fatherhood." 


Usher is a household name in the music industry with his number of hits and awards. Despite his fame, the singer does his best to keep his children and private life away from the spotlight

This may be due to the media scrutiny he received during his legal issues with Foster and all that followed afterward. 


Usher was born on October 14, 1978. He rose to fame at an early age and began making music at 15. His performance at Star Search earned him a record deal with LaFace Records.

Usher's first album came in 1994. After that, he went on to dominate the music scenes for a long time. His successful hit songs and albums earned him a total haul of eight Grammy Awards and many other honors.
