Congrats! Fantasia Barrino’ Is Pregnant With third Baby Her Husband Kendal Taylor👶🏾😍

“American Idol” champion Fantasia Barrino has given birth to her third child, Keziah London Taylor. See the acclaimed singer’s heartwarming social media post.

Renowned singer Fantasia Barrino recently announced the birth of Keziah London Taylor, the latest addition to her blended family with her husband, Kendall Taylor.

The “American Idol” 2004 winner shared a photo of herself on Instagram, dressed in a stunning animal-print gown and standing fearlessly in front of an elephant with massive tusks.

The acclaimed R&B singer chose the elephant for a reason: it represents strength, patience, and power. These qualities resonated with her in the wake of her daughter’s birth on May 23, 2021. Barrino wrote:

“We were patient waiting on you to enter this world…”

She and her husband updated their newborn daughter’s Instagram feed and posted the latter’s name. Many of their thrilled fans congratulated the couple on their latest milestone.

While Keziah is Barrino and Taylor’s first child together, she is the “Free Yourself” singer’s third child. She has two children from previous relationships – Zion, 19, and Dallas, 9.

The unexpected miracle made Barrino’s faith in God grow even stronger.
The newborn baby is Taylor’s second child. The businessman, whom Barrino married in 2015, has a grown-up son named Treyshaun from a past relationship.

Barrino and Taylor are over the moon, now that their long wait for a child together is over. The couple experienced fertility struggles before the “I Believe” hitmaker finally became pregnant.

In a previous interview, Barrino revealed it took her three years to conceive naturally. A past doctor’s appointment revealed that one of her fallopian tubes had closed.

The Grammy-winning singer added that she had many friends who recommended in vitro fertilization, but she was adamant about doing it naturally.

Following the doctor’s discovery, Barrino and Taylor decided to take a break from seeking treatment and stopped actively trying to have a child. Instead, they lifted their dilemma to God.\

The child will be the first for the couple. Barrino already has two children from previous relationships — Dallas Xavier, 8, and Zion Quari, 19 — and Taylor is dad to a son named Treyshaun.

Barrino announced her pregnancy in late November while speaking about her fertility issue during an Instagram Live session with her husband. Recalling the story of Rachel from the holy scripture, Barrino said she started “to pray like Rachel” in hopes of expanding her family.

“Keep trying and you will conceive,” the singer said, before standing up to reveal her baby bump.

Taylor then gave his wife a kiss on her belly, saying, “Listen to me, a little Taylor baby on the way in these streets.”

In December, Barrino appeared on The Tamron Hall Show and opened up about her pregnancy journey, sharing that it took her years to conceive naturally.

“This is a three-year journey we’ve been on,” she revealed.

During that time, Barrino said she sought help from a doctor, who initially informed her that one of her fallopian tubes had closed. After she was told “now that one is open, the other one is closed,” Barrino said the couple decided to take a break and “let God be God.”

“I kid you not, I forgot about it,” she admitted. “And then I woke up one night, and I was just like, ‘Something’s different.’ “

According to Barrino, she took a total of six pregnancy tests and threw one of them at Taylor when the results came back positive.

“I was so excited,” the expectant star gushed.

Barrino married Taylor in July 2015, just three weeks after she had met him.

The Grammy-winning artist told PEOPLE in 2019 that she was taking time to focus on her personal life when she was introduced to Taylor.

“I spent that seven or eight months just sitting back and learning how to love Fantasia and also letting go of so much of the past because in order to for someone new to come in, you got to let go of all the stuff you’ve been carrying or you’ll just run them away,” she said. “So every day, I would put up on index cards what I was looking for and what I wanted. Everything I had on my wall, Kendall was that.”

She added, “He was a praying man, he was a smart man, he was a man with a story, he was a man with a past, he was going somewhere, I saw the king in him and he saw the queen in me.”

Congratulations to Fantasia and her husband Kendall Taylor — they’re expecting their first child together! Tasia revealed the news on Instagram while also sharing that this pregnancy was truly heaven sent.

The pic Fantasia posted was unassuming — the singer was wearing a cute ‘fit with a fly bag — perfect IG post. But, it was the caption that told the full story. The American Idol winner shared that she was pregnant, but that the road getting there was completely faith-filled. “God I Want to Thank You! You Gave Us A Seed even when the Doctor said that one of my Tubes were closed you said Different,” Tasia wrote.
