Former Miss Universe beauty queen and talk show host Yendi Phillipps has revealed that she is expecting her second child with her husband.
Yendi is married to Jamaican businessman Omar McFarlane and the two tied the knot last August in Florida after dating for a few years. Yendi Phillipps, who is 37 years old, is a mother to a daughter, 11-year-old Israel McGregor, whom she shares with dancehall/reggae artiste Daniel ‘Chino’ McGregor.
Phillipps has been spotted vacationing at many exotic destinations across the world recently and has been the victim of pregnancy speculations for years now. However, she has ignored the remarks and comments from fans, even those well-meaning.
However, she revealed that she was pregnant and even mentioned the constant queries of the ‘womb watchers.’
“God’s timing & blessing…and maybe a little bit of unnu goat mouth too,” the talk show host said. She added the hashtags “#IzzyFinallyGotHerWish” and “#BabyOnTheWay.”
