Following several months of speculation, Usher and his fiance Tameka Foster have announced that that they are expecting their first child. In a statement released to PEOPLE magazine
, the couple had the following to say:
We are extremely excited at this point in our lives planning our wedding and the joy that comes with expecting our first child together. We hope people will be happy for us and respect our privacy during this happy period in our lives.
The baby, which is in the Fall, will be the first for Usher, yet the 4th for Foster – who has children from a previous marriage. Thus far the pair’s relationship has been pretty controversial, with the often ridiculed Foster being blamed for Usher firing his mother as his manager earlier this year. The ‘Confessions’ singer is also scheduled to release a new album toward the end of the year.
