The singer welcomes a beautiful new addition to her family, but won't share who the father is.

It's no secret that soul singer Fantasia Barrino, 27, has had a tumultuous life.

At the age of 16, she was raped by a fellow classmate and then gave birth to her daughter Zion, now 10. A few years later, she tried out for season 3 of American Idol. She was crowned the winner at the end of the season, and her life changed forever. Adultery, Heartbreak & Fantasia's Suicide Attempt

In August of this year, the singer was nothing but happy when she revealed the news that she was pregnant with her second child. According to People, she told the audience at a charity concert in Florida, "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." By October, she shared that she was having a baby boy and would be on bed rest for the duration of her pregnancy.

This Tuesday, Fantasia gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, Dallas Xavier Barrino, in North Carolina. Barrino's rep told People, Dallas weighed in at 7 lbs., 9 oz. and 21 inches long.

The singer told the magazine, "I feel so blessed that my son Dallas Xavier was born healthy, and is a wonderful new addition to our family. I thank all my fans for their well wishes and continued support."

However, Fantasia has kept mum about the identity of Xavier's father. In the past, she was romantically linked to a real-estate broker Antwaun Cook, who was reportedly married at the time. Fantasia Barrino Is Pregnant Again: Who Is The Father?
