Baby Number 2 for Singer Usher
Singer, Usher Raymond’s family now has a new addition. The singer and his wife, Tameka Foster welcomed a baby boy on Wednesday, December 10. The couple married in August 2007 after a flurry of tabloid stories concerning Foster.
The name of the new baby has not yet been released. He joins older brother, Usher Raymond V who was born 26 November 2007. According to a source who spoke to People magazine, Usher was in the delivery room during the birth. Seems like this is becoming standard fare and quite helpful to the women in labor.
Usher made the announcement of the impending arrival just last month. He was quoted as saying on Access Hollywood that the baby was, “one of the best Christmas gifts there is to have.” His wife has three sons from an earlier relationship.
Usher started singing at the tender age of six when his mother, Jonnetta Patton encouraged him to join the local church choir. His mom, who he describes as his best friend, was instrumental in guiding his career. He spent his early years taking part in various talent shows, where he was eventually discovered.
Always seeking to branch out, Usher has also done some acting. He had a recurring role on the hit TV show Moesha, starring fellow R&B singer Brandy Norwood, and made a guest appearance on the long running 7th Heaven. He has also appeared on the big screen in Light It Up in 1999, and In The Mix in 2005.
Considered an astute businessman, Usher is co-owner of the NBA team, Cleveland Cavaliers. The very busy performer, who has toured extensively, can expect things to get a lot more hectic. Having five kids with two of them being babies means a lot of work. But if he displays the kind of discipline he has shown throughout his recording and performing career he should come through with flying colors. Of course, there will he added help from nannies and others. Nonetheless, being parent to so many kids while fun can be tiring.
Congratulations to Usher and his lovely wife. Fans no doubt will be looking out for any future baby news and information on where he will take his career from here.
