During his fragrance launch last night at Manhattan restaurant Cipriani, R&B singer Usher confirmed his wife, Tameka Foster, is pregnant with a boy, as we previously posted in July. Usher, 28, explained he’s focusing on having a healthy child.

During his appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in August, Usher expressed hope for a boy so he could pass his name on to the child.

Tameka, reportedly due in December, said she’s feeling “beautiful,” despite some strange food cravings.

The baby will be Usher’s first child, and Tameka’s fourth. Tameka, 37, hopes she will be able to opt for a natural childbirth, but isn’t sure that will work out.

The couple married in a private ceremony in Atlanta last month, after canceling the lavish July ceremony they planned in the Hamptons.
