“Congratulations to you — he got married!” the excited talk show host exclaimed.
“Thank you!” the 38-year-old R&B crooner replied. “In Cuba — it was really great.”
According to a source from Us Weekly, the duo planned on tying the knot before 100 guests in Atlanta but decided to got engaged by January and elope in September instead.

“You know what’s funny?” he asked, pointing to an enlarged version of the image behind him on his interview with DeGeneres. “We put this picture up and we were actually just in Cuba on a cultural exchange and people were like, ‘Hey, they got married.’ But you know, the ring is on the other finger, you guys. But we had a great time. [Grace is a] wonderful woman.”
Meanwhile, in his interview with Billboard last October 2014, Usher gushed about her relationship with Miguel saying:
"I have an incredible partner and manager," he said referring to his long time girlfriend. "She has helped me through some of the hardest times in my life and my career. She’s someone who’s been able to support and understand all of who I am. Not just as a dancer or as a performer or as a singer, but as a humanitarian and a business man and as a person."
Way back, Usher, who is dad to sons Naviyd Ely, 6, and Usher Raymond V, 7, was previously married to Tameka Foster from 2007 to 2009.
