Singer Usher has been working on a lot more than the follow-up to his hit album, Confessions. He has been working on being a husband…and a father! The 28-year-old pop star and his fiance, 36-year-old Tameka Foster, are expecting a child this fall.
“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 couple said in a statement made to the Associated Press.
This will be Usher’s first child and the fourth child for Foster. “What people don’t realize is that Usher and I were friends for nearly seven years and I worked as his personal stylist for five years,” she tells Essence magazine. “I was the only female friend he felt he could talk to.”
