Fantasia Barrino - Fantasia Barrino Pregnant But Father Remains Unknown

Fantasia Barrino, the R&B singer and Broadway actress best known for winning American Idol season three, has announced she is expecting her second child. Barrino confirmed the news during a charity event in Jacksonville over the weekend.
In a video posted on YouTube, Barrino is heard telling the crowd, ".I share this with you because I can relate to you. For a while I walked around thinking, 'What will they say? What will they think about me?' But now I tell you, I don't live my life for folk", adding, "So, this child that I carry, God has given me this child, and I don't have to hide it from none of you all". She is yet to reveal the identity of the father-to-be, but in August 2010 Barrino allegedly swallowed a bottle of pills after reports surfaced she had started a relationship with married man Antwaun Cook. She was later named in court documents in the separation between Cook and his wife, who claimed the singer had knowingly pursued a relationship with her husband despite knowing he was married.
Fantasia Barrino won her first Grammy Award for 'Best Female R&B Vocal Performance' in February 2011. She was recently cast in the lead role of the upcoming Mahalia Jackson biopic, based on the 1993 book 'Got to Tell It: Mahalia Jackson, Queen of Gospel".
