Usher has expanded his family with the addition of a baby boy!
The singer and his girlfriend Jenn Goicoechea welcomed a son on September 29, but the famed musician didn’t share the exciting news until today in a lovely Instagram post.
Usher uploaded a heartwarming black-and-white photo of his newborn with the up-close shot showing the baby boy with his eyes closed. In the caption, the 42-year-old wrote:
Hi, my name is Sire Castrello Raymond … I am the newest addition to the Raymond crew. I was born Sept 29 2021 at 6:42 pm weighing 7lbs 13oz. Hear me roar … A.K.A Ra Ra
The comments section was soon filled with congratulations from fans and celebrities alike. Goicoechea also shared the news on her Instagram, posting a photo of her son in a warm embrace with a shirtless Usher.
She explained in the accompanying caption that Sire Castrello was named after her grandfather, who recently passed away. Usher and Goicoechea first shared the news of their pregnancy back in May.
Then, during the red carpet at the iHeart Radio Music Awards in June, Goicoechea flaunted her baby bump while her man gushed about their excitement for their newest addition, saying they couldn’t wait.
Baby Sire marks the second child for the couple and the fourth child for the eight-time Grammy Award winner. Usher and Goicoechea are also doting parents to a daughter named Sovereign Bo, whom they welcomed in September 2020.
The “No Limit” crooner is the father to two sons, Usher V and Naviyd Ely, from his previous marriage to Tameka Foster.
Usher And Goicoechea’s Relationship
According to reports, Usher and Goicoechea, the senior director of A&R at Epic Records, were first linked in 2019 after being spotted backstage at the Hollywood Bowl concert.
At the time, it wasn’t sure if the duo was dating, but they were seen striking a romantic pose for the camera. They were soon spotted at Diddy’s star-studded 50th birthday, getting cozy but neither publicly confirmed their dating status.

Although the lovebirds haven’t addressed their relationship publicly, the birth of their daughter in 2020 cemented their status as a couple.
Usher’s Las Vegas Residency
Amid preparing to become a father, Usher has been busy with his Las Vegas residency, which began in August. During one of his performances, he was surprised on stage by comedian Kevin Hart who sent the crowd wild with a hilarious body roll move.
After attending the concert, Hart crashed the stage in a bid to one-up the singer, but the viral moment had the audience going crazy. Usher was also super amused by the performance and couldn’t stop laughing.
