Fantasia Barrino announces pregnancy

American Idol season 3 winner Fantasia Barrino announced Sunday that she is pregnant with her second child. She broke the news to a crowd at a Jacksonville, Fla., concert, saying “I share this with you because I can relate to you. And for a while, I walked around figuring out what they will say and what will they think about me. But now I tell you, I don’t live my life for folk.”

Barrino, who has a nine-year-old daughter named Zion, has admitted to battling depression and has said that negative publicity surrounding her personal life drove her to attempt suicide a year ago this month. Yesterday in front the Jacksonville crowd, she affirmed, “God has given me this child.” Barrino has yet to comment on the father’s identity.
