Usher And Jenn Goicoechea Get Ready to Welcome Second Child

Being a parent is one of the happiest moments in a person’s life. The love, joy, and warmth one feels after seeing their baby for the first time are indescribable. And lucky for Usher, he’s going to experience all of that for the fourth time!

Recently, during the 2021 iHeartRadio Music Awards, Usher and his girlfriend, Jenn Goicoechea, announced that they were expecting their second child. The duo who graced the red carpet together was sporting an all-black ensemble. Goicoechea was wearing a fitted dress that showed off her baby bump, and Usher wore a suit and faux fur coat from Amiri.

It seems that the singer wholeheartedly enjoys being a dad. A few days before the awards, he’d explained the meaning of his daughter’s name, “Sovereign Bo,” in an interview with Extra. Here’s what the soon-to-be dad had said. 

Usher gushes over his daughter

Yeah! singer, who shares an eight-month-old daughter with Goicoechea, said the word ‘Sovereign’ had a special meaning to him. It defined a supreme ruler, and thus, he believed it suits his daughter well. He joked that she’s the one ruling the whole household now. As far as the second part of her name, “Bo” was concerned, he described it as “my little reign-bo.”

Usher first introduced his daughter in November 2020 when he appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The singer shared a picture of himself kissing the baby’s forehead. At that time, host Ellen had joked that Sovereign looked like a porcelain doll.

She commented that the child didn’t look real, to which Usher replied that people believe in that notion until they’ve changed the diapers. Speaking about her birth, Usher said that she came into this world before her due date. She was supposed to be a Scorpio, but then she dropped that plan and became a Libra.

The 42-year-old quipped that Libra’s are always sure of what they want. They don’t follow others’ rules. Recalling the time of her delivery, he said she had wrapped the umbilical cord around her wrist. It was as if she was pulling it so that people would let her out. 

Other than Bo, the eight-time Grammy Award winner has two sons with ex-wife Tameka Foster. When DeGeneres asked the singer about how Usher Raymond V and Naviyd Ely Raymond (his sons) reacted after hearing that they have a new sister, he said they were coping well with the news. They were excited about becoming older brothers but were protective about their dad too. Describing parenting, he said that as his sons are growing, he’s becoming less ‘cooler’ for them. But he was happy that he was still the apple of his daughter’s eye.
