Congrats are in order for ‘American Idol‘ Season 3 winner Fantasia Barrino. The singer announced that she is pregnant while at a charity event in Jacksonville, Fla. over the weekend, according to JustJared.

“You are the first persons that I share this news with,” Barrino, 27, told the crowd about her bun-in-oven. Can we just say that we love that Barrino chose to make the announcement in a public forum other than Twitter. It was just as public as the social media site, but it was also a little more personal and warmer than a tweet, right?

Barrino continued, “And I share this with you because I can relate to you. And for a while I walked around figuring out what will they say and what will they think about me. But now I tell you I don’t live my life for folk.” You tell ‘em, girl.

This will be the singer’s second child. She is also mom to daughter Zion, who will celebrate her tenth birthday next week.

As for who the proud papa is? That’s yet to be revealed.

This news serves as somewhat of a happy ending, so to speak, for the singer — one year ago, Barrino was revealed to be having an affair with the married Antwaun Cook. She even overdosed on aspirin in a failed suicide bid around that time, which was covered heavily in the media. Big ups to Barrino for bouncing back in the space of a year.
