'American Idol' Fantasia Barrino is pregnant



tbd-fantasiabarrino080211.jpgIt's been nine years since American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino gave birth to daughter Zion, so it's about time to give her a sibling, don't you think? Good news, then, because she announced in Jacksonville Sunday that she's expecting.

"You are the first persons that I share this news with," Barrino said at a charity concert at the opening of Riverview Apartments, according to and People. "And I share this with you because I can relate to you. And for a while, I walked around figuring out what they will 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 carry -- God has given me this child, and I don't have to hide it from none of y'all."

Who's the daddy? Chances are it's off-again, on-again boyfriend Antwuan Cook, with whom she was seen vacationing in Barbados last month (it was those bikini pics that led to speculation she was with child, too). You know, the guy who was married to Paula Cook, and caused Fantasia so much stress she tried to kill herself a year ago around this time. The 27-year-old didn't say, but considering the word is she's going to marry him soon, we'd figure it's a good guess.
