Usher may have locked in a new wife with his longtime girlfriend.

As sports fans and music fans likely know at this point, Usher performed at halftime of Super Bowl LVIII on Sunday, February 11.

The veteran musician was expected to sing, dance and gyrate a great deal on stage, but no one was expecting to hear he got hitched!

Usher has a girlfriend. A girlfriend he’s so serious about, everyone was sure she’d be his next wife.

According to new reports, that’s exactly what happened just a few days before the big game.

The singer and his longtime partner, Jennifer Goicoechea, reportedly obtained a marriage license on Feb. 8 according to court records obtained by TMZ.

Now, the marriage certificate has not yet filed, so they likely haven’t made it official yet.

But maybe a post-halftime wedding was in order?

Who Is Jenn Goicoechea, His Girlfriend?

Usher and Jenn Goicoechea have actually been together for four years at this point.

They welcomed their first child together, daughter Sovereign Bo, back in 2020… and are also parents to a son named Sire Castrello, who entered the world in 2021.

(Usher also shares two sons, Usher V and Naviyd Ely, with his ex-wife, Tameka Foster. More on that in a bit. )

Goicoechea has mostly avoided the spotlight, rarely even posing alongside her handsome boyfriend on the red carpet of various premieres and special events.

So, who is Jenn Goicoechea?

A music executive well known and well respected behind the scenes of this industry, Goicoechea was born and raised in Miami.

She studied recording arts at Full Sail University in Winter Park and learned a great deal from her mother, who formerly served as director of operations at ACT Productions, a Miami-based event and multimedia production company.

Goicoechea eventually used this connection to work her way up to the role of assistant to Ciara.

According to her LinkedIn, Goicoechea worked at ASCAP as the director of rhythm & soul starting in January 2014.

After leaving ASCAP, Goicoechea became the senior vice president of A&R at Epic Records, a label owned by Sony Music Entertainment.

She often promotes Epic artists on her Instagram, including 21 Lil Harold, DDG, 21 Savage, Beam and many others.

Jenn and Usher’s Relationship To Date

Goicoechea first shared a photo of herself and Usher online in 2016, but they were spotted kissing in 2019, which is when we believe their relationship began in romantic earnest.

In September of last year, as cited above, it was revealed that Usher will headline the upcoming Super Bowl halftime show, prompting a show of support from Goicoechea, who shared the superstar’s announcement video on her Instagram and wrote along with it:

Vegas 2024!

Indeed, that’s where the public will next see Usher and his slammin body.

If you can take your eyes off of it, try to locate Jenn Goicoechea screaming her face off somewhere in the crowd. Gotta imagine this lucky lady will be there.

Usher’s Wife: His Previous Two Marriages Revisited

Before Jenn, there were two other women in Usher’s life – two women he actually married.

Just before he turned 30, Usher married for the first time to Tameka Foster.

The pair tied the knot in 2007 and remained married for two years. But the romance wasn’t meant to be, as they threw in the towel by 2009.

However, they stay friendly to this day because of their two sons together:  Usher “Cinco” V, born in November 2007, and later their second son, Naviyd Ely, born in December 2008.

Usher was also married to another beauty before Jenn.

About four years before Usher hooked up with Jenn, he married his second wife, Grace Harry (née Miguel), in 2015.

Their marriage was short-lived, as he officially filed for divorce from Grace in December 2018. Although Usher legally called it quits in 2018, he listed their breakup as December 2017.
