After much speculation, rumor and Internet innuendo, Fantasia recently announced that she was pregnant with her second child.

The announcement came as the former American Idol singer was performing at the opening of the Riverview Apartments in Jacksonville, FL (Why she was there? I have no idea).

Last month, the blogs lit up with speculation about Fantasia’s weight gain and her vacation with former beau, Antwaun Cook. Last year, Fantasia and Cook were involved in a very public relationship that left her in the middle of Cook’s nasty divorce scandal, and so depressed she attempted suicide. After kicking Cook to the curb (or so it seemed), many of Fantasia’s fans were shocked to see the two of them frolicking on the beach in Barbados.

As she started to perform over the weekend, Fantasia told the crowd she was pregnant, and she didn’t have to hide it anymore.

“I share this with you, because I can relate to you. For a while I walked around figuring out what will they say, and what will they think of 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,” she said.

Although I wish her the very best, part of me wishes Fantasia would get it together. I’d hate for her to jeopardize her career, squander her amazing voice, and end up on an episode of “Unsung,” because her personal drama brought her down.

I’m rooting for you, Fanny!

    I hate to say this but…she is so embarrassing. What kind of “statement” is that? I’d be so embarrassed if I learned my mom announced her pregnancy by saying, “I don’t gotta hide it from NONE OF Y’ALL.”

    Wow… the way Fantasia’s life has been blasted in the media makes me wonder why she never stepped back and reconsidered her actions. While we shouldn’t pass judgement, her life as a public figure has opened her up to scrutiny and I’m sure this pregnancy will make for plenty of gossip. All of us go through storms and make questionable decisions, but at the end of the day her child’s health and well-being should be the main concern. Hopefully, the birth of this child will put things into perspective for Fantasia.

  • its true…ignorance IS bliss. God bless her heart smh

    What kind of statement is that?? God may have allowed all your equipment to be working but it was you who became involved with a married man separated or not that brought you that child. So be embarrassed, be very embarrassed. Yes I think Alicia, Angelina and anyone else who had a relationship with a separated person should be embarrassed, Look what happen to Britney, lol, Fanny don’t let that be you.
