Usher a proud young dad

R&B star Usher is proud to have welcomed his first child at the age of 29 - because he wants to be young and healthy while raising his kids.

The singer's wife, Tameka Foster, gave birth to the couple's first baby, Usher Raymond V, last November. They hope to expand their family in the future. Usher is delighted to have become a father in his twenties. He tells "That's something to be proud of. I'm so proud to be a father. I'd hate to be 80 years old and not be able to run with my kids. I need to still be able to do back flips when they're in high school."

And Usher admits that his eight-month-old son is already copying his dance moves.

He adds: "He is already trying to do flips. He's a pull-up master." - Wenn
