The start of something new! Usher Raymond and his pregnant girlfriend, Jenn Goicoechea, are expecting their first child together, his third, Us Weekly can exclusively confirm.
A source very close to the couple tells Us, “They are thrilled and very excited.” The couple were spotted in L.A., outside a production studio, on Monday, August 31, with Goicoechea’s baby bump on display.
The Grammy winner, 41, previously welcomed two sons with his then-wife, Tameka Foster — Usher, 12, and Naviyd, 11. After splitting from the stylist, 49, in 2009, the Texas native went on to wed Grace Miguel.
In 2018, Raymond and the New York native, 51, announced their split, telling Us at the time: “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 performer was first linked to record executive Goicoechea, 36, in October 2019 when they were spotted backstage at the Hollywood Bowl.
The former Voice coach has been quarantining with his and Foster’s sons amid the coronavirus pandemic, and the little ones cut his hair in April. “First class haircut right here,” the “Yeah!” singer captioned the social media upload of his before-and-after looks.
When the actor celebrated both of his boys’ birthdays in 2018, he included fatherly advice in his Instagram captions.
“I can remember when I turned 11 (forever ago),” Raymond penned in a November tribute 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.”
He went on to write to Usher V the following 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.”
