What was previously celebrity gossip can now be classified as celebrity news: Tameka Foster is pregnant.
Just a week after hinting that babies could be in the future for herself and Usher, the engaged couple has announced to the Associated Press and People that they’re expecting their first child together, due in the fall.
“We are extremely excited at this point in our lives planning our wedding and the joy that comes with expecting our first child together,” Usher and Foster said in a statement released to the Associated Press Wednesday. “We hope people will be happy for us and respect our privacy during this happy period in our lives.”
A controversial fianceee, Tameka Foster hasn’t exactly been welcomed the arms of her true love’s fans. They call her a gold-digger and an ugly person, insults typically reserved for Heather Mills.
“What people don’t realize is that Usher and I were friends for nearly seven years and I worked as his personal stylist for five years. I was the only female friend he felt he could talk to,” Tameka recently told Essence magazine, as she tried to defend their relationship.
When asked about plans for babies like little Sam Alexis Woods, Foster added: “Yes, I do plan to have children with Usher. This is the man I love and plan to spend the rest of my life with, so why wouldn’t I want to share that bond of bringing another life into this world with him?”
This will be the fourth child for Foster as she attempts to rival Shar Jackson for largest litter.
How will Usher’s fans react to the news? Probably as well as Trista Sutter reacted to the idea of cameras filming her pregagncy.
