I'm in the middle of watching the finale of THE BACHELORETTE -- and there's some major drama -- AND I just got back from a lovely long weekend at the cottage with my family. So let's see if I can do this....

FANTASIA BARRINO'S PREGNANT with her second child! (How'd I do...?)

The American Idol winner (27) revealed the big news at a charity concert earlier today in Jacksonville, Florida.

“You are the first [people] that I share this news with,” she said. "And I share this with you because I can relate to you. And for a while, I walked around figuring out what they will say and what will they think about me. But now I tell you, I don’t live my life for folk.”

“So, this child that I carry," she continued, "God has given me this child. And I don’t have to hide it from none of y’all.”

Fantasia didn't say who the father is. But rumour has it Antwaun Cook (the married man with whom she was rumoured to have had an affair last summer) is the man. But that's all we got.


Baby will join Fantasia's adorable daughter Zion (9), who's featured with her mama in the above photo.

Hopefully, this happy news carries Fantasia further out of the serious funk she found herself in after last summer's scandal.
