Yep, Fantasia IS Pregnant!

July 31, 2011

The news was confirmed today by the American Idol winner herself, Fantasia IS pregnant! We’re assuming that Antwaun Cook is the baby daddy. Rumors ran rampant last month that the 27-year-old was preggers after photos of her and Cook on vacay in Barbados surfaced, revealing a bit of a baby bump on Fantasia.


While tongues were wagging late last month that Fantasia was with child, there was no confirmation from Fantasia’s camp claiming that the rumors were true. After all, it was almost a year ago that she tried to kill herself because she didn’t want to deal with the major drama going on in her life at the time. She and Cook were in a relationship, he had told her when they started dating that he was separated from his wife Paula and he had moved out of their home. Fantasia was named in the divorcing proceedings, and she made headlines as the woman having an affair with a married man. Feeling overwhelmed with everything going on in her personal life, Fantasia admitted that she ‘wanted out’. She reportedly overdosed on aspirin and sleeping pills.

To make matters worse, Paula had threatened legal action against Fantasia under the ‘Alienation of Affections’ Law in North Carolina. Paula claimed their separation date was June of 2010, but a Judge ruled in December that the actual separation between Antwaun and Paula took place on September 14, 2009. During all this, she admitted that she had an abortion (Cook was the baby daddy) around the time she had tried to commit suicide. What a mess it was. While she reportedly had ‘split’ with Antwaun, it didn’t last for long.

Last month they were snapped on vacation, together with Fantasia’s family, including her daughter Zion. Photos of her in a bathing suit fueled rumors of a pregnancy, but nothing was confirmed until now. From the YBF:

For a while I walked around figuring out what will they say and what will they think about me. But now I tell you I don’t live my life for folk.

THIS CHILD THAT I AM CARRYING…God has given me this child. And I don’t have to hide it from NONE of y’all.
