Yendi Phillipps Pregnant For Chino McGregor [DETAILS]

Former Miss Jamaica and Miss Universe runner up, Yendi Phillipps, is pregnant for boyfriend Chino McGregor.

Last month, a very reliable source close to the Big Ship deejay told Urban Islandz that the two are in fact dating.

“People are seeing them together and are talking, but they are both very private individuals,” the source said, requesting anonymity. “A lot of people wouldn’t think that a girl like Yendi would date Chino, but that’s because a lot of people don’t know Chino like that. Chino is a cool youth both inside and outside dancehall circles.”

Now the beauty queen has shocked her fans with a message posted on her Facebook page confirming that she and McGregor are an item and expecting their first child.

“Seventeen weeks and counting,” Yendi Phillips said. “I wish we could have shared it earlier but you know they say it’s bad luck to announce too soon. I’m so excited to finally tell you that we have a little ‘McGregor’ on the way! You know how much I value “you” as you’ve been such a support through my various ventures so I wanted you to know first-hand as this one is perhaps my most exciting to date! I feel truly blessed and am more amazed everyday to experience our creator in such a miraculous and organic way. Seasoned mommies, don’t hold back on the advice … hehewinkLove, Blessings … and Life.”

Chino, who is the son of reggae veteran Freddie McGregor, says he is excited about the news.

“I am very excited about the upcoming birth of my son or daughter,” Chino said. “Yendi is an extremely responsible person and we were ready for this move, so I feel comfortable, excited and ready because she is a great partner and I have no doubt she will be a great mother who will help to instil positive values in our baby.”

The dancehall star is already the proud father of a 3-year-old girl.

    Well, I wish her all the best! A new life is a blessing for sure. I hope the young couple will “do the right thing” in the eyes of the Lord. Especially since so many young women look up to Ms. Phillips.
