Legendary pop and RnB musician Usher married his longtime girlfriend in Las Vegas.

The OMG singer, 45, has been in a relationship with Jennifer Goicoechea, 40, for years, going public for the first time in 2019, and they have two children together.

She was there on Sunday when the star surprised audiences at the Super Bowl and around the world with her halftime show, performing all the hits from Yeah to Let It Burn and My Boo.

Now it's been revealed that Super Bowl Sunday will be a day to remember for more than one reason for the musician, as it also marks his and Jennifer's wedding anniversary.

The couple tied the knot on the same day, exchanging vows in Vegas Weddings' outdoor Terrace Gazebo, with their mother Jonetta Patton acting as the couple's witness.

A representative for Usher confirmed People that Usher and Jennifer “took the next step in their relationship and got married on Sunday night in Las Vegas surrounded by close friends and family.”

'They both look forward to continuing to raise their children together surrounded by love and thank everyone for the well wishes.'

Usher, full name Usher Raymond IV, has daughter Soverign Bo and two-year-old son Sire Castrello with Jennifer.

He also shares sons Usher V, 16, and Naviyd Ely, 15, with ex-wife Tameka Foster.

Usher and Jen were seen hanging out together in Las Vegas after the Kansas City Chiefs' impressive win, where he donned an all-white pantsuit and wore what appeared to be a wedding ring on his left finger.

Before his impressive halftime performance, he told People that he and Jennifer had already “made a commitment to life…together for the sake of our children.” It wouldn't be strange for us to get married.

'We'll be in each other's lives until we die, obviously, because we have something to share. This is beautiful. Our children. But not because of that. I truly feel like I have an amazing partner who I respect.
