Fantasia Barrino has announced that she is expecting a baby boy with a due date of December 29.
“I’m having a boy. I’m at home, I’m on bed rest right now,” Barrino, 27, said Tuesday in a phone interview on The Wendy Williams Show.
The season three winner of American Idol revealed she was pregnant in August at a charity event in Jacksonville, Florida.
“You are the first persons that I share this news with,” she told the crowd at the event. “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.”
Barrino has still not revealed who is the father of the baby.
The baby boy will be joining Barrino’s 9-year-old daughter, Zion.
