Fantasia Announces Pregnancy

Fantasia Barrino is about to be a baby mama once again. The “American Idol” champ has revealed that she is pregnant with her second child.

Amidst rampant rumors that she was with child, the 27-year-old singer confirmed the big news at a charity gig for the grand opening of Riverview Apartments in Jacksonville, Fla., on Sunday (July 31).

“You are the first person that I share this news with,” Fantasia told the crowd. “And I share this with you because I can relate to you. And for a while I walked around figuring out what will they say and what will they think about me. But now I tell you I don’t live my life for folk.”

She continued, “This child that I carry, God has given me this child. And I don’t have to hide it from none of ya’ll.”

The father of the child has not been revealed, but Fantasia has been romantically linked to Antwuan Cook. The pair made headlines last year after Cook’s wife alleged that the two were having an affair.

Fantasia has a 10-year-old daughter named Zion Quari Barrino from a previous relationship.
