R&B superstar Usher has some good news to share for a change: he's going to be a dad again!

The 41-year-old star and his girlfriend, Jenn Goicoechea, are expecting their first child together, insiders recently confirmed.

“They are thrilled and very excited,” a source close to the couple says.

Jenn, a vice president of A&R (talent scouting and artistic development) at Epic Records, hasn’t posted about the pregnancy on social media.

However, she and the Don’t Waste My Time singer were spotted in West Hollywood over the weekend picking up juice, and her baby bump was on full display.

The performer was first linked to the 37-year-old music exec in October 2019 when they were spotted backstage at the Hollywood Bowl concert.

Photographer Jennifer Johnson snapped a picture of the couple at the same event, writing on Instagram, "Cause she's such a good kisser! Caught a rare moment with @usher backstage the other day. I stay catching moments like these boys be catching feelings!"

Throughout the 2020 award season, the couple were seen attending numerous A-list events, like the Vanity Fair afterparty and more.

The baby will be Usher’s third child. He shares two sons – Usher Raymond V (12) and Naviyd Ely (11) – with his ex-wife, Tameka Foster (49), from whom he split in 2009 after two years of marriage.

The star was most recently wed to life coach and philanthropist Grace Miguel (51). The couple announced their decision to divorce in December 2018, after three years of marriage.

The crooner has in recent years been dogged by multiple lawsuits accusing him of exposing sexual partners to herpes without disclosing the sexually transmitted disease.

Two years ago, he was sued by three women and a man who accused him of exposing them to the herpes virus but according to celebrity legal news site The Blast, the cases have all been settled.
