Usher has been singing about romance for years, and he finally found love with longtime partner Jenn Goicoechea.
While it’s unclear how the “Yeah!” singer and Goicoechea initially met, the twosome were first photographed together in December 2016. In the snap, Usher leaned down while Goicoechea covered her mouth as she whispered into his ear.
“Not sure what I’m saying or who I’m speaking too,” she captioned her Instagram post at the time. “But my nails look good.”
The pair sparked romance rumors when they were photographed together in Atlanta in June 2019 and seemingly confirmed their relationship status a few months later.
Usher and the senior vice president of A&R at Epic Records have since welcomed two children together, Sovereign and Sire.
