Get more on Fantasia after the JUMP!
Fantasia Barrino played a charity show in Jacksonville, Florida Sunday and shared her baby news with a delighted crowd:
You are the first [people] that I share this news with. And I share this with you because I can relate to you. And for a while, I walked around figuring out what they will say and what will they think about me. But now I tell you, I don’t live my life for folk. 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.
Well, there you have it. While there was no mention of the baby’s father, Fantasia has been romantically linked to Antwaun Cook, who was married when he got together with Fantasia. Their affair became public after Cook’s ex-wife Paula took Fantasia to court for meddling in their marriage.
This is not Fantasia’s first child. The 27-year-old singer has a 9-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.
Congrats on the baby news! Here she is announcing it:
