Usher On His Sons: "They Bring Me My Balance"


(The above pic of Usher’s two sons – 1-year-old Usher and 6-month-old Naviyd – is from

Below are some excerpts from Usher’s interview with OK! magazine:

OK: How do you find balance and relaxation?
Usher: I find balance in two places, when I’m working out and with my kids. And I could be doing many things, I could be running, doing cardiovascular, all that type of stuff. I really find the balance in what I need to do or what I’m thinking about or what I need to think about in that moment when I’m on the treadmill running. The other place is within the noise of my children. When I hear them my mind is not focused on all of the things that are holding me down. When I’m with my boys its all about them and I just put it all together somehow. They bring me my balance.

OK: What do you like to do with them?
Usher: We spend most of our time in Atlanta in the car traveling wherever we’re going to go. That’s when our fun moments are, either at home or in the car.

OK: Will they be singers, mini Ushers?
Usher: Hopefully! We got Usher V, and Naviyd he’s not quite at the age where he can talk, sing and catch rhythm, but Usher’s already jumping. He likes to jump, thats his new thing.

    His boys are adorable!! I wish Usher the best of luck through his impending divorce and that he and Tameka do what’s best for their sons.

    The pic is adorable. That smile on the older boy is precious.Looks like he is having a ball. Navyid looks like he wants to know what all the fun is about. Very cute.(I just wish he was properly strapped into his stroller.)
    Very cute pic.

    they are too cute. Raymond Usher the 4th(?) looks just like his daddy…I think it is too early to tell with the little one.
