Usher has officially become a girl dad!

In an Instagram post on Wednesday, the “Bad Habits” singer announced that he’d welcomed his first child with his current girlfriend, Jenn Goicoechea

“We are feeling blessed and full of love with the arrival of our beautiful baby girl, Sovereign Bo Raymond,” Usher wrote, sharing a photo of himself holding his baby girl’s hand. 

“‘Isn’t She lovely” by Stevie Wonder [will be] on repeat,” he added.

“Congratulations, brother!!!” wrote Alicia Keys in the comments. 

Sovereign will be loved on by her big brothers — 12-year-old Usher V and 11-year-old Naviyd Ely — whom Usher shares with his ex-wife Tameka Foster. The two were wed in 2007 and divorced two years later.

Usher confirmed Jenn’s pregnancy earlier this month during an appearance on ABC’s Good Morning America. 

“Babies always bring such joy to a family and [I’m] really, really excited for my young one,” he said.

The “I Cry” singer also mentioned he was preparing to release new content for fans. 

“I’m actually in the process of completing the album, and I’m getting ready to drop some new music and new visuals,” Usher said. “It’s just been a process and just wanted to make sure you guys were ready for it.”

Congratulations to Usher and Jenn on their new bundle of joy!
