Usher is a doting father. The ‘OMG’ singer recently gave fans a glimpse into his life as a girl dad.
“Blessings,” Usher said of his children. The recording artist shared pictures of him with his daughter, Sovereign Bo Raymond, that showed her smiling while in her father’s arms. “Your whole face,” one fan said in reference to their theory of Sovereign having her dad’s physical features. “So precious,” the supporter added.
Usher and his girlfriend, Jennifer Goicoechea, welcomed their daughter in 2020. Sovereign made Jennifer a mom for the first time and Usher the father of a girl for the first time.
“I’m loving being a girl dad for once,” Usher shared last year during an interview with Good Morning America (GMA). “I’m even changing my colors,” he added. “I’m wearing pink and cool stuff like that.”
Usher and Jennifer welcomed a son named Sire last year who made Sovereign a big sister. Usher told the press that he was “definitely enjoying this little baby boom of ours,” which has included two children in under two years.
Sire and Sovereign are Usher’s youngest kids. The recording artist’s older children, Naviyd and Usher V, are with his first wife, Tameka Foster. In many ways Usher V and Naviyd spent their younger years in the spotlight. These days, the boys are finding their way as teenagers who do not engage in music appreciation as often as some would think.
“I do wish that my kids listened to my music more,” Usher shared with GMA last year. Perhaps, Naviyd and Usher V are getting doses of their father’s greatest hits during his residence in Las Vegas. Usher’s shows are full of surprises with the artist doing new things with his classics and immersing his audience in the experience of song creation.
“What makes it helpful to engage in the moment is the fact that you know the song, but you don’t know everything about the song,” Usher recently said of his “immersive” experience in Vegas. “You don’t know where it came from, what inspired it and what happened, so that’s what I mean when I say immersive,” he added. “I’m immersing you in the experience of what my music is.”
