Following the Super Bowl 58 halftime show, eight-time Grammy Award-winning musician Usher and his longtime girlfriend Jennifer Goicoechea got married in Las Vegas, via Ken Ritter of the Associated Press.
The couple tied the knot on Sunday, although the two filed their application for the license on Thursday. Usher and Goicoechea were married at Vegas Weddings, according to TMZ Sports.
Per Ritter, the couple have been together since 2019 and have two daughters.
The wedding was officiated by Rev. Ronald Joseph Polrywka with Jonnetta Patton, Usher’s mother, as a witness. Chapel owner Melody Willis-Williams released a statement congratulating the couple after the ceremony.
“Congratulations to the Newlyweds! What a great game and Usher’s performance was phenomenal! We were beyond thrilled to host in this epic day for Usher and his new wife,” the statement said, via TMZ. “As much as we love, love, this is the couple’s news to share any further details on. We’ll always be fans of Usher! Yeah!”
The halftime show featured several outfit changes, iconic songs, and surprise guest appearances from fellow musicians such as Alicia Keys, H.E.R., Jermaine Dupri, Lil Jon, and Ludacris.
As for the game itself, the Kansas City Chiefs won a thrilling overtime contest as they defeated the San Francisco 49ers by the final score of 25-22. The 49ers originally led 10-3 at halftime, although a second-half surge by the Chiefs sent the game beyond the fourth quarter.
After San Francisco kicked a field goal on the opening possession of overtime, Patrick Mahomes marched Kansas City down to the 49ers’ three-yard line before tossing the game-winning touchdown to wide receiver Mecole Hardman. The 28-year-old Mahomes earned his third career Super Bowl MVP award.
It’s safe to say that both Usher and Mahomes enjoyed their respective Sunday nights.
