Singer-songwriter Usher Raymond has announced the arrival of his third child, his first child with his girlfriend, music executive Jenn Goicoechea.
Usher shared a sweet image of himself holding his newborn’s hand. “We are feeling blessed and full of love with the arrival of our beautiful baby girl.” It’s a girl! Usher and Jenn have chosen to name her Sovereign Bo Raymond. The I Cry singer shared what song reminds him of his daughter, “‘Isn’t She Lovely’ by Stevie Wonder on repeat.”
While Sovereign is Jenn’s first child, Usher has two sons. He shares Usher, 12, and Nayvid, 11, with his ex-wife Tameka Foster. Usher was also very close to his stepson, Tameka’s son Kile from a previous marriage. Sadly, Kile passed away in a jet ski accident in 2012.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Naviyd!!! @fortnav ✉️💚💚💚💚“Good News” One thing everybody looks for, everybody can appreciate, and everybody needs from time to time. You are that for me , and then some. Naviyd….that is why I wanted you to have that name….and spelled that way, because it would be your own. Ya’ll know how black folk be getting creative as hell wit the spellin of our kids names. You are uniquely your own….there is no other like you. God sent you through me (you know where you came from)😉👍🏾. Naviyd “The Good News” you came at a very unexpected time in my life and I’m happy you did. Its Persian. I can get biblical and all “The good news” (or “gospel” = “good spiel”) is a literal translation of the Greek word euangelion. The news of salvation, or liberation from darkness or brokenness. You humbled me… Happy Birthday to my Lil Man…I know you hear that all the time, but you really are a Little MAN….and though age 10 may only entitled you to labels like young man and big boy, you ain’t far from a young adult….you remind me so much of myself, within that phase of my life. Where I wanted everybody to be happy….with themselves and with me. Well I have “The Good News” for you Mr. Naviyd Ely Raymond this birthday celebration. You cain’t make everybody happy, but what you can do is be happy yourself. No matter what it may look like….you can always make it better with your intentions. I love you so much and want so much for you to be happy 100% , as you are? Just keep on living!!! You have been through so much for someone your age and you have so much to see and learn. I’m so proud of you. You are my oldest youngest child. They say it’s not right to have a favorite child and I don’t….but you are singlehandedly my favorite 10 year old. You worry so much about what others think, to the point were you actually have more grey hair than me.😌 Take care of yourself and try and stay positive. Gotta make sure your mask is on before you can help others. Love you Son #NaNaTurns10 #NaviydRaymond #Level10 @fortnav
