Congratulations are in order for singer / actor Usher Raymond IV and his music executive girlfriend Jennifer Goicoechea! The couple welcomed their first child together, a girl today. Usher shared the happy news himself, posting a photo on Instagram of his hand being clutched by the tiny newborn’s fist.
“We are feeling blessed and full of love with the arrival of our beautiful baby girl, Sovereign Bo Raymond,” Usher captioned the post. “’Isn’t She Lovely’ by Stevie Wonder on repeat.”
The happy news comes just a few weeks after it was revealed the couple were expecting. Sovereign is Goicoechea’s first child and Usher’s third. He shares sons Usher V, 12, and Naviyd, 11, with ex-wife Tameka Foster.
Sources close to the couple tell BOSSIP the baby arrived early but both mom and Sovereign are doing well.
We’re just glad everything is okay — so much can go left with an early delivery but it sounds like Usher and the family were blessed to have had a positive experience.
We’re excited about the arrival of baby Sovereign! What kind of nickname do you think they’ll give her? We can’t wait to see the photos and find out more.
