Fantasia will soon be a mother of three!
On Tuesday (November 24), the 36-year-old singer announced her pregnancy alongside her husband Kendall Taylor during an Instagram Live.
"We having a baby cuz," Kendall said as Fantasia stood up and revealed her baby bump. "Little Taylor baby on the way in these streets."
The "Enough" singer then added, "I was trying to hide it as long as I could from y'all but I can't ever hide it."
Fantasia went on to speak about her fertility journey, urging her fans to trust God after she faced problems conceiving. "Just keep waiting on God," she instructed before Kendall revealed that doctors told them they would need in-vitro fertilization to have a child. However, he recalled telling them that he trusted God, who showed him a different path.
"I remember sitting in that doctor's office and I was like, 'I hear what y'all saying, but I know what God showed me,'" Kendall explained.
A day later, Fantasia shared an Instagram post, in which she opened up about her fertility issues. "𝐺𝑜𝑑 𝐼 𝑊𝑎𝑛𝑡 𝑇𝑜 𝑇ℎ𝑎𝑛𝑘 𝑌𝑜𝑢!

This will be Fantasia's third child — she has two children, daughter, Zion, 19, and son, Dallas, 8, from previous relationships — and first with Kendall, who has a son, Treyshaun, from a previous relationship.
