Fantasia Barrino is expecting baby #2! The 27-year-old former American Idol winner made her big announcement over the weekend at a charity concert in Jacksonville, Florida.
Barrino told the crowd:
- "You are the first [people] that I share this news with. 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."
Back in August 2010, the singer admitted to attempting suicide after news spread that her boyfriend, Antwaun Cook, was married. Fantastia is already the mom to 9-year-old daughter Zion.
Read what else Fantasia told the crowd about not wanting to hide her baby bump ... after the jump.
Fantasia told the crowd:
- "So, this child that I carry â€“ God has given me this child. And I don't have to hide it from none of y'all."
