AI’s Fantasia Barrino Confirms Pregnancy


The rumors that has been buzzing around for months has finally ended. Fantasia Barrino herself admitted the speculated pregnancy in front of her fans. She announced the news during her concert last Sunday in Florida.

“God has given me this child and I don’t have to hide it from none of y’all. You are the first person 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 will they say and what will they think about me?’ But now I tell you I don’t live my life for folk.” Barrino told her fans.

She didn’t tell them though who is the father of her child nor when the baby is due. Her manager, Brian Dickens told CNN on February 8, 2011 that Barrino is pregnant with prosperity. Her superb weight gain has been very obvious by that time and Dickens just answered everyone that Barrino is gaining 45 pounds in preparation to play legendary gospel singer Mahalia Jackson in a movie. At this very time, the truth finally came out. No more hidings as Barrino herself already admitted it.

Barrino is the third American Idol title holder and her 8 years in singing career has filled with so much controversies. It has been known to everyone that she had an affair with a married man last summer. At first she denied that Antwaun Cook was married but the latter’s wife filed a child custody case petition that included allegations of their affair. This has lead Barrino to get herself treated in at a Charlotte, North Carolina, hospital for a sleeping pill overdose.

She also faced a case filed by her own father and her financial problems has been very transparent to everyone.

During her show last Sunday, Barrino left her fans with some things to ponder: “Take my word and run with it. Little girls, take your time with little boys. Little boys, respect the little girls.”
