American singer-songwriter Usher and his girlfriend Jennifer Goicoechea have welcomed their second child together. The couple shared pictures of their newborn son, and fans were stunned at his close resemblance to Usher.
Usher and his girlfriend Jennifer Goicoechea have introduced the world to their newborn son Sire Castrello Raymond via posts on their Instagram pages.
On Tuesday, Usher shared a black-and-white snap that showed part of his baby son's face, from the lower part of his nose to his mouth and upper body.
The "Confessions" singer captioned the post by introducing his son to the world. He wrote, "Hi my name is Sire Castrello Raymond … I am the newest addition to the Raymond crew..."
Many of Usher's famous friends and fans commented on his sweet post and congratulated him on the birth of his son. Some fans also commented on how much Sire already looks like his father.
Goicoechea also posted a picture of her and Usher's newborn son on her Instagram page. Like her boyfriend, she shared a black-and-white snap that showed the side of Sire's face as he slept on her body while covered in a printed blanket.
In her post's caption, Goicoechea wrote, "The Champ is Here!!," before adding details about Sire's birth, including his name and weight. She also said she is proud to be his mother.
In the second part of her caption, Goicoechea told the story of how she arrived at her newborn son's name. She revealed she recently lost her grandfather, aged 105, whose name was Champ Castrello.
Goicoechea first revealed she was pregnant when she showed off her baby bump.
Goicoechea described her late grandpa as the strongest, bravest, family-oriented, funny, and kindest man she knows besides Usher. She also wrote:
"I couldn't ask for a better example of how a man should be! He was the definition… it was only right we keep his name alive."
More fans commented on Goicoechea's post and remarked at her baby son's close resemblance to Usher. One said Sire is definitely Usher's baby and several others observed that father and son had the same nose. Another described the newborn as a precious baby.
The Shade Room also announced that Usher and Goicoechea have welcomed a newborn son and shared a screenshot of the singer's post on their official Instagram page.
Goicoechea first revealed she was pregnant when she showed off her baby bump while attending the 2021 iHeartRadio Music Awards in May.
Usher and Goicoechea, who is an executive at Epic Records, have reportedly been dating since 2019. The couple welcomed their first child, a daughter named Sovereign Bo Raymond, on September 24, 2020.
Just like he has done with Sire, Usher announced Sovereign's birth a few days after her arrival via a post on his Instagram page. He shared a picture that showed him holding her little hand and captioned it:
"We are feeling blessed and full of love with the arrival of our beautiful baby girl, Sovereign Bo Raymond. "Isn't She lovely" by Stevie Wonder on repeat ❤️ ❤️ ❤️."
A few weeks before welcoming Sovereign, Usher appeared on ABC's "Good Morning America" and announced his 2021 Las Vegas residency.
During his interview, he also confirmed he and Goicoechea were expecting a baby, and his family was elated at the baby news. He also said he was excited for his young one.
After his GMA appearance, Usher appeared on "On Air With Ryan Seacrest" and explained why he announced he was expecting a baby with Goicoechea.
He explained that it came as a surprise. He said he almost went through an entire pregnancy with his girlfriend without the world knowing about it.
But because he wanted the world to know how excited he was about the baby he jumped ahead and decided to make it public. He further said everyone in his family was excited as well.
The "My Boo" crooner usually keeps his children, family, and private life out of the spotlight.
Usher has been a devoted father to Sovereign and was seen in May with her and Goicoechea during an outing in LA. Now he has another baby to show more love to.
Besides Sovereign and Sire, Usher shares two sons, Usher Raymond V and Naviyd Ely Raymond, with his ex-wife Tameka Foster.
The "My Boo" crooner usually keeps his children, family, and private life out of the spotlight and rarely posts pictures of them on social media.
Besides Goicoechea and Foster, Usher has been involved with other famous women. He dated TLC singer Chilli Thomas from 2001 to 2003. After divorcing Foster, he dated Grace Miguel and married her quietly in 2015. However, they divorced three years later.
