R&B singer Fantasia announced yesterday that she and her husband Kendall Taylor are expecting a child.
The couple, who has been married for five years, had been facing fertility challenges, so they sought medical help.
Taylor said, “They were talking about in-vitro. They were going to do artificial insemination.” He added, “I hear what y’all saying, but I know what God showed me.”
Fantasia and her husband announced their pregnancy on their weekly Instagram Live show, Taylor Talks.
“Keep trying, and you will conceive,” Fantasia said. “Only God can do it,” Taylor echoed.
The 36-year-old American Idol winner has two children from previous relationships: a daughter, Zion, and a son, Dallas. Her husband, a businessman and motivational speaker, also has two adult sons and two grandsons.
The couple didn’t disclose the sex of their soon-to-come bundle of joy.
The pair had been trying for years to conceive a child together naturally.
“I was trying to hide it as hard as I could from y’all,” she said. “I promise you. Just keep waiting on God. It was really starting to depress me and him.”
