R&B singer Fantasia made a “shocking” revelation over the weekend. She’s pregnant! (But you probably already knew that, right?)
The “Idol” winner confirmed her rumored pregnancy Sunday during a charity concert in Jacksonville, FL. “You are the first persons that I share this news with. And I share this with you because I can relate to you,” she told the crowd outside Riverview Apartments.
She continued, “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. This child that I carry, God has given me this child. And I don’t have to hide it from none of y’all.”
While Fantasia didn’t mention who the unborn child’s father was, she has been recently linked to her on-and-off (formerly married) boyfriend Antwaun Cook (they were spotted vacationing in Barbados last month), which may lead people to believe that the baby is his.
Cook already has two young children by his estranged wife Paula, while Fantasia has a 9-year-old daughter named Zion from a previous relationship. Now the two are expecting a child TOGETHER. Oh boy.
