Ahead of hosting the iHeart Radio Music Awards, American R&B singer Usher spoke to Extra's Jenn Lahmers and revealed details about his baby daughter Sovereign Bo. 


Extra's Jenn Lahmers caught up with singer and songwriter Usher Raymond 24 hours before he hosted the iHeart Radio Music Awards. The duo spoke about several topics, including Usher's baby daughter, Sovereign Bo. 

Most fathers' eyes light up when they speak about their daughter, and the case was not different for Usher as he talked about Sovereign, who he welcomed in September 2020.

Usher referred to her as the queen of the "Ushbucks," and added that he had not been getting much sleep because of the iHeart Radio Music Awards but was enjoying the late nights with his daughter. 

He also opened about the inspiration behind his daughter's name. He admitted "Sovereign" is a beautiful word defined as a supreme ruler. He concluded

"She's definitely ruling the household, but Sovereign Bo Ray — Bo is at the end of it, so she's my little reign-bo."


Usher is known for turning out great hits that leave his fans gushing and delighted, but his adorable daughter leaves him with those exact feelings. 

[Usher and Jenn Goiceochea] are expecting a second child.

The "Confessions" crooner revealed he was on diaper duties. He also said that Sovereign has yummy toes, and he could not help it. 


Usher is set to launch his Las Vegas residency on July 16, and he let Lahmers in on it. He said he has wanted to do it for many years, and this is a good time to make it happen. 

The celebrated singer said he has been preparing for the residency, and hosting the iHeart Radio Music Awards would be like a warm-up to what fans should expect in July. 


Usher shares Sovereign with his girlfriend, Jenn Goicoechea. The lovebirds announced they were expecting a second child during the iHeart Radio Music Awards.  The couple walked the awards show's red carpet, with Goiceochea showing off her baby bump while wearing a black gown. 

Besides Sovereign and the baby in Goiceochea's womb, Usher is also a father to two sons, Usher Raymond V, 13, and Naviyd Ely Raymond, 12, whom he shares with ex-wife Tameka Foster.
