    Usher Welcomes Mini-Me

    Usher has ushered in a new stage in his life: Fatherhood.

    The one-name wonder and his wife, Tameka Foster, welcomed a baby boy on Monday night, his agent confirmed to E! News.

    The Grammy-winning entertainer previously told E! News that he planned to have his firstborn share the family moniker and be named Usher Raymond V.

    "We are so happy and proud of our beautiful son," the couple said in a statement. "What a blessing!"

    Usher V was born in Atlanta at 9:55 p.m., and weighed 7 pounds, 9 ounces.

    He is the first child for Usher, 29, and fourth for Foster, 37.

    The couple announced the pregnancy in June. They wed in a private civil ceremony on Aug. 3 and renewed their vows Sept. 1 in a blowout party in Atlanta.

    They were originally scheduled to swap vows in July, but called off the event at the last minute, after Foster had an unspecified "pregnancy scare."
