Usher recently told PEOPLE he was open to the idea of marrying Goicoechea, noting that the pair is already committed because of the two children they share: daughter Sovereign Bo, 3, and son Sire Castrello, 2.

"We've obviously made a commitment to life for life together because of our children," explained the Grammy winner, who also has two teenage sons, Usher V and Naviyd Ely, with ex-wife Tameka Foster. "It wouldn't be odd for us to get married. We already did here. You know what I'm saying?"

Usher and Goichoechea, a music industry executive, first sparked dating rumors in June 2019 after they were photographed together at a birthday party for producer Keith Richards.

In November 2023, Usher told PEOPLE he felt "fortunate" to have his then-girlfriend by his side in life, calling her his "support system."

"I'm very happy, very fortunate to have an incredible friend, not just a partner," he said. "She's my best friend, and I love her."
