Proud mother Tameka Foster posted a picture on her Instagram page, in which she’s cradling her son, with the caption: “My favorite 5-year-old. What a blessing!”

“I have always loved and appreciated my sons but tragedies and close calls make this even more evident,” she added.

Usher released a statement this week in which he thanks people who helped saving his son’s life.

“I would like to thank my Aunt Rena as well as the doctors and nurses who are working with us around the clock. I would especially like to thank the two men who saved my son’s life, Eugene Stachurski and Ben Crews,” the singer said in a statement. “They are true heroes and I am deeply grateful to them.”
