Usher Raymond and girlfriend Jennifer Goicoechea are expecting their first child together, Us Weekly reports exclusively.

The baby will be Raymond's third child and Goicoechea's first, Us Weekly can exclusively confirm.


A source very close to the couple tells Us Weekly, "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.


Goicoechea is Raymond's youngest girlfriend, as he usually prefers older women.


The Grammy winner, 41, previously welcomed two sons — Usher Raymond V, 12, and Naviyd, 11 - with his then-wife, Tameka Foster, 49. After they divorced in 2009, the Texas native went on to wed record executive Grace Miguel, 51. They announced their separation in 2018 after Usher was sued by several people who claim he gave them the herpes virus.

Raymond and Goicoechea, 36, were first spotted together as a couple at the Hollywood Bowl in October 2019.

In an interview with, The Weeknd said: "I heard 'Climax,' and was like, 'Holy f—, that's a Weeknd song.' It was very flattering, and I knew I was doing something right, but I also got angry. But the older I got, I realized it's a good thing."

Usher had time to respond to the allegations indirectly.

On Instagram Live, the singer shared a series of videos that featured him re-listening to "Climax" to reacquaint himself with the notes before launching into a falsetto rendition of the song.

Usher looked directly into the camera while singing the last line of the song, "Can't take it back, nigga."

Usher then launched the #ClimaxChallenge, with some fans trying (and failing) to imitate Usher's signature falsetto.

Usher was previously married to industry veteran Grace Miguel who divorced him in 2018 after he was sued by three fans for allegedly giving them herpes. Usher's career took a hit as a result of the lawsuits. It is very difficult to make herpes sexy.
