Fantasia: I'm Pregnant!

Fantasia has announced that she is expecting a child!

The 27-year-old American Idol winner sang at a charity event over the weekend for the opening of the Riverview Apartments in Jacksonville, Florida, when she announced the news.

“You are the first persons that I share this news with,” Fantasia said. “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.”

“This child that I’m carrying, God has given me this child. And I don’t have to hide it from none of y’all,” she added.

Fantasia already has a 9-year-old daughter, Zion, who will celebrate her tenth birthday next week.

    First of all, who the daddy?
    Second of all, I feel sorry for every kid that was ever been conceived by this monster!

    Really? For real? You just couldn’t wait to add fuel to the fire. What did you gain from this? How will this info help to make you or Miss Barrino any better? You are so disrespectful. She shared something wonderful & you’re trying to taint it. She was releasing what she shouldn’t be ashamed of. You should do all you can to lift our black women up. Its not like we have a lot who are like Fantasia & Monica.

    Be proactive not reactive!!
    Protect the good role models. How many sins have you committed today?

    So, would it be better to abort the child? I think not you comment is laughable. Do yourself a favor & me while your at it hush yo face and kick rocks with an opened toe shoe. Her child are really none your concern nor responsibility so chill out, man.

    @sourpatch575:
    It is probably by the married man she was messing with not too long ago…but then again, that’s none of my business so let me stop and not be too quick to judge her. As long as the child is healthy and taken care of, that’s all that matters.

  • WhatATool

    Poor Fantasia, not a smart thing to do again, I feel sorry for her because she doesn’t seem to bright.

    It seems like her life is so unstable. I think she wants to love someone unconditionally but children need someone who not only loves them but also are mature enough to raise them to be sensible citizens of this world.

    Yes, children are a gift but it does take two people to create them AND two to raise them right.

    I wish her and her family well, though.

  • Marieme

    Sourpatch took the words out of my mouth. Who is the father? That married guy she was sleeping with?

  • James Francos #1 fan!

    Ohhh, so she’s not going to abort this one? Big surprise.

  • S Kaye

    Although I am NOT a fan of hers by any means, let her be.

    Just look at how many women/men in show biz have kids out of wedlock all of the time. It has become almost the norm.

    Sadly, however, too many young people have started to think it is cool.

  • nicole

    What? I live in Jacksonville, Florida and never once heard of her coming here. Not that I would have attended, but not one word on any of out local channels &/or websites, I just took a look.
