Usher Anticipates Baby No. 4, Reveals Whether His Kids Listen to His Music

And then there were four.

Less than a year after welcoming his first daughter, Sovereign Bo, Usher is gearing up to welcome his second baby with his girlfriend Jennifer Goicoechea, making this his fourth child.

While making a guest appearance on Monday’s “Good Morning America” Usher expressed his excitement for becoming a dad. He told the hosts, “I’m definitely enjoying this little baby boom of ours.” Usher, who was only a father of two boys before his daughter Sovereign Bo was born last September, said that he’s “loving being a girl dad” and is taking steps to embody the role.

The “You Got It Bad” singer said, “I’m even changing my colors; I’m wearing pink and cool stuff like that.”

Besides addressing his excitement about the “new addition to the family,” Usher discussed the desire he has for his kids to listen to his music. “I do wish that my kids listened to my music more,” the multi-Grammy-award-winning singer confessed. He explained that his youngest son Navyid, 12, actually is the one who listens to my music more than anything” but his eldest son, Usher Raymond V, 13, “doesn’t care.” As for his daughter Sovereign, Usher said, “she just likes me to sing to her.”

Although Usher may not care about his dad’s music, he did, at one point, care about his dance moves. In a 2014 interview with Billboard, Usher said, “When seeing me perform on tour in the past … and most of the time it’s past his bedtime, but he’s just sitting there studying every move, every second, like laser focus. And then I’ll see him off by himself doing the moves.”

It’s also interesting that Navyid is the one willing to listen to his father’s songs because at one point Navyid told Usher that his singing skills weren’t all that. In the same interview, Usher said his son told him “You’re not a great singer.’”

Looks like he may have had a change of heart.
