Are you really though? Even if you aren't, it's true, Fantasia Barrino is pregnant!
According to the Daily Mail, Barrino announced her pregnancy in front of a crowd at a charity event in Jacksonville, Florida over the weekend. Barrino said the crowd was the first group of people she decided to publicly tell about her new baby. The singer commented on the fact that for a time, she was worried what people would say about her because of the pregnancy, especially since it's assumed that her former lover, Antwaun Cook is the father, and his affair with Barrino but her in the news. And not in that good news type of way. But she stated that she's decided not to live her life for other people. Go ahead and free yourself, girl! When Barrino was last seen vacationing with Cook sometime last month, that's where pregnancy rumors hit an all-time high. The singer trounced around in a one piece with a noticeably larger stomach and a few pounds packed on her. Her reps denied it though, claiming she was putting on weight to play Mahalia Jackson in an upcoming biopic. Psych!
This will be the second child for the singer. We won't flat out say Cook is the father because you see where assuming gets you (see Lauryn Hill's pregnancy, for example), plus, Barrino hasn't come out yet to say he is or isn't. But we do wish girlfriend all the best of luck with her pregnancy and that she does what she needs to do in order to be happy. Despite what the naysayers may say…
