Usher Expecting A Boy

by in Tameka Foster, Usher

Earlier this month, Usher told Ellen that he was hoping that the baby his wife was carrying was a boy.

Well he got his wish…

According to PEOPLE the singer and his wife Tameka Foster are expecting a boy.

When asked what he wanted for his son, he replied that his desires are pretty basic:

“I just want my son to fully be coherent and to be healthy, first and foremost.” “I’ve found that it is a step-by-step process. You can wish for a million and one things. But I hope that my son has the same energy I had as a child,” Usher said. “Hopefully, he won’t be as bad as me. I hope that he’s just a healthy son.”

While speaking to Ellen, he also gave some hints about what he’d name his male progeny. “If it’s a boy, I’m going to name him Usher,” the musician – full name Usher Raymond – said. “I’m hoping to name him that. I’ve been playing with a few names. I’m the fourth. Usher Raymond IV. I just want to pass the name on. Maybe I’ll change the middle name.”

Mom-to-be, Foster, 37, says she’s feeling “beautiful” but having odd cravings.

“I eat ice all day,” she said. “It’s a weird thing. I love it. Now I’m thinking about ice. I want to find some ice.” Foster also admits that while she’s aiming for a natural birth, it might not happen.

“I don’t want drugs,” she said. “I’ll try. I say that now. You call me about ten hours into labor. I’ll be asking for everything. Vicodin and everything.”
