Usher and Jenn Goicoechea have more reason to celebrate this Super Bowl Sunday.
The R&B icon and Goicoechea obtained a marriage license in Clark County, Nevada, on Thursday, February 8, as confirmed by Us Weekly. In Touch initially reported the news.
While neither Usher nor Goicoechea have addressed their reported marital intentions, Us has reached out for comment.
The couple, who were first linked in December 2016, share two sons, Sovereign, aged 3, and Sire, aged 2. Usher also has two older sons, Cinco and Naviyd, from his previous marriage to Tameka Foster, which ended in divorce in 2009 after two years.
Balancing his successful musical career with his family life is paramount for Usher.
“The biggest challenge, period, is balance — trying to make enough time for it all and still have enough for yourself,” Usher exclusively shared with Us Weekly in February 2023. “Because you don’t have personal balance and you can’t balance it out for them.”
He emphasized, “I really want to be at every recital, [I] wanna be at every basketball game. I want to be at every step. And God willing, I’m able to instill very incredible valuable things, lessons that’ll help assist them when I’m not around, believe it or not, that’s when it actually applies. And it matters more than anything.”
Usher headlined the Apple Music concert on Sunday, February 11, at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas just one day after being married.
Reflecting on his performance inspiration, he expressed to Good Morning America earlier this month, “I think about what our country has kind of represented for Black artists, you know, having to at some point go through kitchens to even be able to perform for an audience, but they had to leave back through that same door, fear for their lives as they went to the next state to do the same thing. So I’m coming through the front door with this one.”
He added, “I didn’t start where I am now, and I didn’t get there by myself. So, everybody that has been a part of it, I’m carrying them with me. All of my fans, my loved ones, the people who may have felt like they have been forgotten, they haven’t. I’m carrying you right with me when I walk on that stage that night.”
While Usher hinted at potential special guests joining his 15-minute set, the specifics remained under wraps until the big moment. Ultimately, he was joined by the likes of Ludacris, Alicia Keys, and H.E.R.
