Usher grew up without a father in his life, and he wants to make sure that he does the opposite for his sons, Usher Raymond V & Naviyd Ely Raymond.
The singer talked about his legal troubles, his love for his children, and his thoughts on the whole matter in an interview.
Here's what he said:
“I want to raise them to be responsible future adults. No one knows your child like you do. It’s taking the time to actively be there. It’s a day in, day out process. I’m actively doing it everyday that I possibly can.”
On his much publicized custody battle, the star was less open about details, but he did say:
“A lot of what happens behind the scenes is unfortunately newsworthy to the world, but these issues are confidential and all about my passion and my steadfast belief that a father is important in a child’s life. To have the time that I’ve had with them has made them the young men that they are.”
No matter what happens - we're positively sure that this amazing singer is doing one hell of a job as a father. There's no perfect way to raise your kids in order for them to be successful because of all the variables that are out of your control.
But we would totally wager on Usher's kids becoming awesome only because of how amazing of a parent he is.
