Fantasia Barrino Is Expecting A Boy!

The holidays should be especially memorable for expectant mom Fantasia Barrino this year – the American Idol alum says that she’s due on December 29!

Fantasia shared the news during a call to the Wendy Williams Show this week, and also
revealed the baby’s gender, saying, “I’m having a boy. I’m at home, I’m on bed rest right now.”

Though the singer, who announced her pregnancy on stage during a show in Florida this past summer, has remained mum on the identity of the baby’s father, it’s been reported that it’s Antwaun Cook, whose divorce from his ex-wife Paula was finalized late last year.

When asked about the relationship yesterday, Fantasia said simply, “I’m not gonna talk about that.”

The baby boy on the way will join Fantasia’s 9-year-old daughter Zion.
