T he current issue of People magazine features R&B singer Usher Raymond chillin at home with his two sons, Nayvid and Usher Raymond IV (Cinco).
Usher has his hands full with his kids, Usher V, 2, and 20-month-old Naviyd Ely. They’re young, but they’re into everything! They definitely wear their dad out. He said: “They play really well with each other. They have their differences, but they’re definitely brothers. They’re fun to watch together and both have a ton of energy. They can wear me out sometimes, without a doubt. Usher V is always in everything. He’s the one who leads his brother astray – he’s the instigator. He’ll be like, Hey, let’s swing from the table, and his brother will follow him. He’s the one who’s responsible when they get into trouble.”
Usher is delighted there is no sibling rivalry between the boys, with his youngest son worshiping his brother. Talking about Usher V, he told People magazine: “He’ll read books to Naviyd. Well, he can’t read, but he’s memorized the books and will recite them. Naviyd worships the ground Usher walks on. If Usher gets something to eat, Naviyd wants the same thing. If Usher wants to watch something on TV, so does Naviyd.”
Usher, also claims having children has made him become a “real man”. He said: “It really hits me that I’m responsible for raising them and showing them what a real man it. I don’t know if I always do it right, but I’m trying.”
