Fantasia Announces Pregnancy

Published: Monday 1st Aug 2011 by Sam

For months, speculation has been rife that soulful singer Fantasia is with child. Beyond a simple celebrity pregnancy, the 26 year old’s pregnancy would carry with it much controversy, given reports that the father was supposedly Antwaun Cook.

Many will remember Cook as the married man who hid his relationship status with his wife from the American Idol alum, arguably serving as the cause of her suicide attempt last summer.

Well, if you thought the ‘Bittersweet’ singer’s story was already complex, her “special announcement” yesterday at a Jacksonville show will raise more than a few eyebrows.

Video after the jump…

Honestly speaking, yours truly has known about this for a minute. More specifically, since her London show back in May, where Fanny was noticeably more subdued than usual; and where many backstage were informed of her ‘condition’. As such, an announcement was imminent.

Now it’s been made, we’e opting to maintain a dignified silence on what ultimately is a private matter. Fantasia does remain a great artist, though. Yeah…

Your thoughts?

  4. Travis August 1, 2011

    Yeah M** got ONE time right out of about seven times they’ve said she was pregnant. Oh well I hope she is happy. I bet her daughter is happy to be a big sister soon.

    Her next album should be HOT she has ALOT to sing about whew can’t wait! Hurry back with some new music Tasia!

    Giving life is always a blessing, but the circumstances are a hot mess. I just hope the baby does not look like dude. If that happens it will be a constant reminder, of a big mistake in her life.

    It is what it is, good luck Fanny….


    Lol! 🙂

  6. Kelly August 1, 2011

    She is getting some hardcore backlash from this!

  7. U wanna rumble with the bees huh??? (queenbey) August 1, 2011

    I am truly shocked ……

    But wen u have unprotected s**, 2 things are bound to happen:

    STD or pregancy!!

    I just hope she gives birth to a beautiful baby!!

  8. Misfit August 1, 2011

    @YeaBey and @Travis

    I know right!! How many times was Mariah pregnant according to M**, before it was true!!! Lmao!! That site is such a fail!!

    You all kill me with the statements of grandiose grandeur. “we’e opting to maintain a dignified silence on what ultimately is a private matter.” … as the folks across the pond (although location doesn’t matter), you all act like you’r doing Fantasia a favor by not racking her through the coals like you do with those celebs you dislike…., You have no power here, and everything you know about Fantasia’s pregnancy is known by anyone else with a press pass that has been to one of her concerts in the past few months. Besides, you already made allegations and spoke about the married man drama, so to end by saying you won’t go there is disingenuous since you just went there: ‘the 26 year old’s pregnancy would carry with it much controversy, given reports that the father was supposedly Antwaun Cook.”….. You can’t have it both ways. LOL… I guess it makes you all feel like king makers when deciding who to eviscerate and who to elevate.

  10. U wanna rumble with the bees huh??? (queenbey) August 1, 2011

    I remember wen CNN and Nancy Grace hatin ass were doin nightly specials about Fantasia and her personal issues……

    But they NEVER mention Alicia Keys and her personal issues……

    I always wonder why……

  11. Butch August 1, 2011

    No one cares LOL That’s between her and GOD

  12. Travis August 1, 2011

    @QueenBey @MisFfit I agree with you all. I also wish the circumstances around her pregnancy was much better but oh well. Of course we only know whats in the gossip blogs and not the whole story.

    I hope she’s in a better place emotionally then where she was a year ago.

    I just want some new music. If its good she has my coins. I really don’t care about all that other crap lol

  13. Legendtina4life August 1, 2011

    Didnt see this coming at all. I dont pay much attention to her anymore. I used to be a big fan of Fantasias. Congrats to her.

  14. KREAYSHAWN STAN August 1, 2011

    girl we knew you was pregnant before YOU knew you was pregnant

  15. KREAYSHAWN STAN August 1, 2011

    im sorry but that whole announcement was just tew dramatic lmao. took me back 2 church

  16. Fantasy Ride August 1, 2011

    Old ass news lol.

  17. Misfit August 1, 2011

    @ Travis


    @ QueenBey

    Get outta my head! I was just thinking the same thing! We both know why that is. It’s called the brown paper bag test!!! Lol!!

  18. iloverihanna>beyonceislame August 1, 2011

    Who cares. We care about music. Not popping babies from ur vajay-jay.

  19. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) August 1, 2011

    What she said in the clip was truly amazing!She seems stable and healthy and she’s taken her decisions.She showed some maturity.And @TGJ why would this announcement raise eyebrows???It’s a woman that announces her pregnancy!Jesus Christ!

  20. tasian August 1, 2011

    I was so nervous about reading this but to my pleasant surprise, most took the non-judgmental route which is great. Fantasia has done nothing more wrong than anyone else. We just don’t have the public spotlight shined on our personal lives bcuz if we did, whew! With that said being with child hasn’t stop her from being a helluva soul singer & performer. She still gets on that stage & gives 200%. We gotta love her 4 that.



    I thought you stanned for Fanny…

    Anyway,I can’t wait to see the gender lol…

  22. Huh? August 1, 2011

    Yes Yes she is pregnant but the Real Question her is Why the Hell is she performing at an Opening of a Rental Complex? O_o

  23. Diane August 1, 2011

    Didn’t his divorce go through? With all the knowledge regarding birth control, they can’t say it was a mistake. Fantasia is like every other person in this world, she just wants to be loved. S***, if you talk negatively about Fantasia then you should talk crap abou Lil Wayne too.

  24. jmoore August 1, 2011

    Congrats, to my girl Tasia! God Bless!

  25. happy August 1, 2011

    Fanny, Fanny, if you’re happy, i’m happy for you no matter the circumsance, the child is innocence but by gosh, protech your assets and get that jerk to sign a pre-nup. He loves the lifestyle and M** didn’t get anything right that anyone couldn’t see with eyes.

    At the Essence festival, it was clear and at her BAbados concert, it was clear she was pregnant. Nancy Grace is a hack, Alicia got away because she is mainstream and lightskin.

  26. truthis August 1, 2011

    wrong is wrong and right is right…light or dark skin and that goes for both alicia and fantasia…ALL imma say is KARMA will be biting someones in thes Asses real soon!!!IM out

  27. Geronimo Deuces August 1, 2011

    @ Truthis…. or wateva

    marriages have problems and from the looks of it…. mashonda likes to nag, till today she still complains about alicia so put yourself in swiss position wouldnt you wanna leave a person who never stops nagging???

    im not sure about fantasia but hey so long she give me good music i dont care about her personal life.

  28. anthony August 1, 2011

    this is old news. She was obviously preggy when she performed at Artscape in DC a few weeks ago. She was on stage looking like she was about to pop. Congrats to her though “I don’t live for folk”!

  29. anthony August 1, 2011

    Congrats to Fantasia and I hope she releases a new album within the next year.

  39. larrissa74 August 3, 2011

    I will say I hope she has a strong healthy baby. I must give her props for giving a free concert in Jacksonville,Florida in 90 + degree weather.She stays true to her roots. I loved how she gave every little a hug and kiss and gave sound advice too. God will bless her and her family for this. She is doing another free concert back here in NC in her hometown High Point,supporting a Back to School charity for needy kids,admission is school supplies which will go to these children. She has a good heart and I respect her greatly for that. I wish her nothing but happiness and peace of mind. May God mercy on some of you who wish to judge for the same judgement you throw at her will be thrown at you.

  40. larrissa74 August 3, 2011

    I meant she gave every little girl a hug and kiss.
