Fantasia Officially Announced Pregnancy, ‘I Don’t Have to Hide It’

Fantasia pregnant with second child.

Former American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino formally announced her pregnancy at a benefit concert on Sunday (July 31).

Barrino, who has been showing a baby bump in recent weeks, told fans at the Riverview Apartment in Jacksonville, Florida that she has nothing to hide.

“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. For a while I walked around thinking, ‘What will they say? 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!”

Last year, Barrino attempted to suicide after an extensive media bashing following her alleged relationship with Antwaun Cook while he was still married. Cook and Fanny are rumored to be back together, but its not known whether he fathered her new baby.
