American Idol superstar Fantasia Barrino is expecting her first child with her husband Kendall Taylor.

She shared the news on Instagram, stating, “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.” She added, “@Salute1st I love you king and I can’t wait to see who he or she acts like.”

Fantasia and Taylor have been married for about five years. This will be his third child but her first with Taylor.

Fantasia and Taylor also recently opened up about their fertility struggle during an Instagram Live for their show, Taylor Talks.

Fantasia said she “tried to hide it for as long” as possible, but her baby bump was growing, so she couldn’t anymore.

Congratulations Barrino and Taylor on their baby on the way!
