American Idol’s season-three winner, Fantasia Barrino, announced she is pregnant with her second child during a charity event in Jacksonville, Florida over the weekend.
“You are the first persons that I share this news with,” Fantasia, 27, 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.”
Fantasia added, “So, this child that I carry – God has given me this child. And I don’t have to hide it from none of y’all.”
She made no mention of who’s the father of the baby. Fantasia was most recently connected to a married man named Antwaun Cook, but they reportedly split last year.
The new baby will be joining Fantasia’s 9-year-old daughter, Zion.
