Usher Poses with 10-Month-Old Son Sire in Rare Slideshow on Instagram

Usher treated his followers to a brand-new set of photos earlier this weekend, where he offered a rare glimpse of his now 10-month-old son, Sire.

In the slideshow, the “Yeah!” singer couldn't look more proud as he beams up at his son, who is seen standing on his leg. In the first photo, young Sire is seemingly holding himself up, until you notice Usher's hand carefully balancing him. The infant also smiles at something off screen. Then, the second photo is taken from an angle behind the couch, where Sire is caught with his hands pressed together as he looks directly at the camera. Finally, Usher rounded out the carousel with a video of himself tickling Sire and asking, “What time is it?” as the child plays with his watch.

In the caption of his post, Usher simply wrote, “Blessings…”

Sire is Usher's fourth child and the second that he shares with his partner, Jennifer Goicoechea. He and the music executive reportedly started dating in October 2019, and then they welcomed their daughter, Sovereign Bo, in September 2020, almost exactly a year before Sire was born.

Usher also shares two other children—Usher V, 14, and Naviyd Ely, 13—with his ex-wife, Tameka Foster.

Followers showed their love for the sweet slideshow, like one user who said, “Your whole face! So precious.” Another commented a fire emoji and a heart emoji and wrote, “Love this!!”

Usher, whose birthday took place only a couple weeks after Sire was born, shared a video of the child's birth last October, where he said, “Birthday Wish. All I could ask for on my birthday (and on each and every day) is for the safety of my most priceless gifts from GOD. I pray for you… ALL. Cinco, Nav, Sové, & Sire. That’s the best birthday gift a man could ask for.”

We love seeing Usher in dad mode.
