There's a reason to crack open a bottle of Champagne in the Usher household. But maybe not the one you think.

Jonetta Patton, the crooner's mother and manager, is engaged - to a hot younger guy.

"His name is Eric," says a close source. "He is a former boxer from Houston, and he's 36."

Patton celebrated her 50th birthday in Atlanta last week with a party attended by Usher (who's 28) and his fiancee, Tameka Foster. Foster told friends at the event that she is not pregnant. However, this conflicts with two sources close to Usher's camp who independently told me that she is with child.

Some have even speculated that the pregnancy might be a holdover from her complicated relationship with former husband Ryan Glover.
