Yeah—Usher is officially, officially off the market! The R&B singer-songwriter, 37, finally confirmed his secret marriage to longtime love, Grace Miguel, on Friday’s episode of The Ellen Degeneres Show to thunderous applause from the audience.

In the interview, Usher tells Degeneres that he and Miguel, 45, wed quietly in Cuba while on a cultural exchange trip (rather than tying the knot before, then honeymooning in Cuba after, like many people assumed).

“You know what’s funny? Look—we put this picture up,” Usher laughs as he points to a cute selfie of the couple on their trip that showcases the gold band on his right hand in the photo. “And people were like, ‘Hey, they got married!’ But, you know, the ring is on the other finger, you guys,” a smile spreading across his face as he indicates his left ring finger (now sporting the wedding band in question). “But we had a great time.”

Very sneaky, Usher! This showbiz power couple has a long history together. They’ve been romantically involved since 2009 and became engaged in January. This is Usher’s second marriage after divorcing his first wife, Tameka Raymond. We’re so happy for the Usher and Miguel and can’t wait for more details on their hush-hush nuptials!
