Love was in the air for Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce at this year’s Super Bowl — but they’re not the only couple to be head over heels in love.

Bailiff and his partner Jenn Goicoechea were married in Las Vegas just hours after the R&B superstar’s first appearance at the super bowl halftime show.

According to their marriage certificate, which was made public Monday, the couple tied the knot at Vegas Weddings, with Usher’s mother, Jonnetta Patton, serving as one of the witnesses.

Reverend Ronald Joseph Polrywka – who usually disguises himself as Elvis Presley – performed the ceremony.

Usher, 45, and Ms Goicoechea, 40, have been together since 2019 and have two young daughters.

The singer divorced his first wife, Tameka Foster, in 2009 after two years together, and he gained custody of their two sons.

In December 2018, the singer filed for divorce after three years from his second wife and former manager, Grace Miguel.

Usher’s representative did not immediately respond to questions, including whether the service was conducted in the chapel or in the drive-thru lane.

Lynn Marie Goya, Clark County clerk and head of the county’s marriage license office, confirmed that her office issued a license to the couple last week.

“Naturally, they got married in Las Vegas,” she said. “What better place than the wedding capital of the world?”
