The 45-year-old Grammy-winning artist and his girlfriend, Jennifer Goicoechea, 40, tied the knot in Las Vegas on Feb. 11, where the singer performed at Super Bowl LVIII, PEOPLE has confirmed.
The pair exchanged vows at Vegas Weddings’ Terrace Gazebo, an outdoor wedding chapel that seats 30 guests. Usher’s mother Jonetta Patton was the couple’s witness, according to the marriage certificate.
“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 representative for the singer told PEOPLE in an exclusive statement.
“They both look forward to continuing to raise their children together surrounded by love and thank everyone for the well wishes.”
After the big game, the pair stepped out together in Las Vegas, and Usher was photographed wearing a gold band on his left ring finger. Goicoechea was dressed in an all-white pantsuit featuring an off-the-shoulder, tie-waist jacket and wide-leg pants, while Usher wore a white floor-sweeping fur coat over his black tuxedo.
Speaking with PEOPLE exclusively earlier this week, the Super Bowl 2024 halftime show performer opened up about his relationship with Goicoechea.
“Listen, when you find someone that you know is a great partner, of course, it is an honour and a pleasure to be able to share life with someone who wants to share it with you and loves you, who you are,” he said.
“We’ve obviously made a commitment to life for life together because of our children,” Usher continued. “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. That’s beautiful. Our children. But not because of that. I really do feel like I have an amazing partner that I respect.”
Usher also opened up about forming a deep connection with Goicoechea during a time of growth. “I started this journey, I found and met an amazing partner who happened to be my best friend and was there all the time, and I was like, wow, this could be great,” he said of the start of their romance, which began after he took a soul-searching trip around the globe in 2018.
The newlyweds welcomed their first child together, daughter Sovereign Bo, in 2020, followed by their son, Sire Castrello, in 2021. Usher also shares two sons, Usher V and Naviyd Ely, with his ex-wife, Tameka Foster.
Goicoechea and Usher first sparked dating rumors when they were photographed together at producer Keith Thomas’ 40th birthday party in June 2019.
