Usher Raymond is expecting his first child with longtime girlfriend Jenn Goicoechea.
This will be Usher’s third child and Goicoechea’s first, Us Weekly reports. A source close to the couple says, “They are thrilled and very excited.” The two lovebirds were seen in L.A. outside a production studio on Monday with Goicoechea sporting her baby bump.
The 41-year-old singer has two sons with ex-wife Tameka Foster. He then eventually moved on into a relationship with Grace Miguel. But back in 2018, Raymond and Miguel revealed their breakup, saying, “After much thought and consideration we have mutually decided to separate as a couple. 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.”
It wasn’t until October 2019 that rumors started to circulate that Goicoechea, 36, and Raymond were an item after they were spotted backstage at the Hollywood Bowl. They also accompanied one another to Diddy’s 50th birthday celebration in December. Raymond also took Goicoechea as his date to the Vanity Fair Oscar Party.
During the pandemic, Raymond and his children with Foster have been spending time together. Back in April, Raymond shared a picture of himself after getting his hair cut by his sons. “First class haircut right here,” the singer wrote in a caption. In 2018, Raymond celebrated both his sons’ birthdays, sharing some heartfelt words.
“I can remember when I turned 11 (forever ago),” Raymond wrote back in November 2018 to his youngest son. “It was the beginning of me understanding that I had begun 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.”
A second birthday post dedicated to his son, Usher V, came the next month. “One thing everybody looks for, everybody can appreciate, and everybody needs from time to time. You are that for me, and then some. You remind me so much of myself within that phase of my life. 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.”
