Singer Fantasia Barrino is expecting her second child. The star and her beau, Antwaun Cook, were spotted in Barbados last month, where the "Idol" alum sparked rumors she was pregnant after showing off a baby bump in her bathing suit.



Fantasia, 27, performed at a charity concert on Sunday in Jacksonville, Florida and made her big announcement to the crowd. The singer said, "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," adding, "This child that I am carrying... God has given me this child. And I don't have to hide it from none of y'all."

Barrino has a 9-year-old daughter, Zion Quari Barrino. She was the "American Idol" champ in 2004. Last August, she was hospitalized following an overdose of aspirin and an unknown sleep aid.
