Usher and longtime girlfriend Jennifer Goicoechea reportedly tied the knot Sunday in Las Vegas after his Super Bowl LVIII Halftime performance at Allegiant Stadium.
The 45-year-old singer — born Usher Raymond IV — and Goicoechea exchanged wedding vows at an outdoor wedding chapel with his mom Jonetta Patton in attendance as a witness, according to a marriage certificate obtained by People Magazine.
“We can confirm that Usher and Jennifer Goicoechea took the next step in their relationship and did get married on Sunday night in Las Vegas surrounded by close friends and family,” a rep for the singer told the outlet.
“They both look forward to continuing to raise their children together surrounded by love and thank everyone for the well wishes,” the statement added.

Following the Kansas City Chiefs’ 25-22 overtime victory against the San Francisco 49ers, the singer and Goicoechea were spotted out together in Vegas, with the singer reportedly sporting a gold band on his left ring finger, People noted.
The superstar singer and his girlfriend obtained a marriage certificate earlier in the week, according to Clark County court documents, The Hollywood Reporter reported. However, the reported newlyweds have reportedly yet to file a marriage license, the outlet noted.
Usher and Goicoechea have been dating since 2018 and have welcomed two children together, a daughter Sovereign Bo, 3, and son Sire Castrello, 2, THR noted.
Ahead of Usher’s halftime performance, the singer spoke to People about his relationship with Goicoechea.
“Listen, when you find someone that you know is a great partner, of course it is an honor and a pleasure to be able to share life with someone who wants to share it with you and loves you, who you are,” Usher said.
“We’ve obviously made a commitment to life for life together because of our children,” he added. “It wouldn’t be odd for us to get married. We already did here. You know what I’m saying?”
“And we’re going to be in each other’s lives until we die, obviously, because we have something to share,” Usher continued. “That’s beautiful. Our children. But not because of that. I really do feel like I have an amazing partner that I respect. We have an amazing dynamic between our relationship where I’m able to be passionate still about what I do and have an incredible partner to work through some of the harder times as a young man dealing with children.”
The marriage would mark Usher’s second one, after previously being married to fashion designer Tameka Foster, with whom he shares two sons.
