The celebrity baby boom is in full swing! Hot on the heels of Katy Perry giving birth and other celebrities like Rachel McAdams, and Ed Sheeran’s wife expecting children, singer and songwriter Usher has also jumped on the baby train.
The singer announced that his girlfriend Jenn Goicoechea is expecting their first child together, although it will be his third.
“They are thrilled and very excited,” a source close to the couple said. Spotted together in Los Angeles over the weekend, Goicoechea had a very visible baby bump – implying that she has been pregnant for some months.
Goicoechea, who is a record executive, was first romantically involved with the singer after they were spotted getting cosy backstage at the Hollywood Bowl in 2019.
Usher has two other children with ex-wife Tameka Foster, but the couple split in 2009. After that relationship soured, Usher hooked up with Grace Miguel.
It was only two years ago that they announced the breakup, stating at the time that they still have deep admiration for each other.
“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,” the pair said in a statement.
