Fantasia is ending 2020 with a major blessing, and we couldn’t be happier!
The singer and her husband Kendall Taylor revealed on their Instagram Live show, Taylor Talks, that they are expecting a child. Fantasia explains that her pregnancy comes after years of trying to conceive. “Keep trying and you will conceive,” she says, standing up to reveal her growing baby bump.
The pair revealed that the process of having a baby took an emotional toll on them. “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.”
In a follow-up post, Fantasia revealed more about the health obstacles that made getting pregnant more difficult. “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,” Fantasia wrote. “@Salute1st I love you king and I can’t wait to see who he or she acts like.”
Fantasia and Taylor met in 2015 and became engaged three months after meeting. The “Truth Is” singer revealed in the November 2019 issue of ESSENCE that meeting her husband helped her find herself and become the woman and artist she is today. “I will have to say kudos to him because when he came into my life, he brought out a Fantasia that I didn’t even know was there,” she said. “It started with my whole transition and my fasting time, because if I didn’t sit back and take the time to realize who I was and let go of some stuff, then I would have lost him.”
This is the third child for Fantasia, who has an 8-year-old son named Dallas and a 19-year-old daughter from previous relationships. Taylor has an adult son named Treyshaun, as well as two grandsons.
Congratulations to the happy couple on their new bundle of joy.
