Not unlike many other celebrities in Hollywood, Usher and Tameka Foster have not officially confirmed the rumors that they are currently expecting their second child. Then again, they haven’t denied them either! In a new interview with MTV news, while on set filming his new music video "Trading Places," Usher was all smiles when prompted on the baby news, but would not elaborate either way. "Everybody’s saying that [I’m having another baby]. There’s a lot of speculation," said the 29-year-old singer.

While he wouldn’t discuss a possible future addition to the family, he did share that he is "loving every aspect" of fatherhood when it comes to his 9 ½-month-old son Usher Raymond V. Usher went on to say,

"My life improved so much in having a child. It’s a very promising thing to have a child."

Usher has announced that he will be heading out on an all-ladies tour, One Night Stand, this fall.

If the rumors are true, I’m very happy for Usher and Tameka. I’d like to see them have a little girl since there are all ready so many boys!

Oh Usher. You do know your family members have confirmed it to all the magazines? Hahaha. Maybe he just likes to be private.

Wasn’t there a post about Usher and his wife expecting #2 on this site last week or so? Wasn’t there also an article on People’s website?

jashmom- Yes, but Usher and Tameka haven’t techincally confirmed it themselves yet. I believe it was a family member of theirs who confirmed it to PEOPLE.

Most magazines and websites consider it 100 percent confirmed once a family member, friend, or other reliable source has confirmed it. However, if the parents-to-be haven’t confirmed it themselves yet, CBB and PEOPLE both respect that fact.

For example, although it’s obvious to anyone with eyes that Naomi Watts is pregnant with baby #2, PEOPLE is always careful to mention in photo captions of her that she has yet to confirm it herself.

When Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Lopez confirmed their pregnancies, CBB referred to them as confirming their pregnancies, despite the fact that the entire world already knew. 🙂

CBB and PEOPLE also seem to respect the fact that some celebs confirm their pregnancies without using words. For example, when Angie debuted her Knox and Viv bump at the Independant Spirit Awards, CBB and PEOPLE (along with almost everyone else) knew that that was her and Brad’s way of confirming the pregnancy without saying a word. 🙂
