Singer Eric Benet and his pregnant wife Manuela Testolini pose in a recent black and white photo shoot.


Although the couple are expecting child number one together, the newest addition will make Eric a father two times over. Eric recently said of becoming a dad for the second time, “I’m just at this very happy, very fulfilling, exciting time in my life. I’ve got one child in her second year of college (Benet’s daughter India is 18) and another on the way. With India I was the young, cool daddy. Now I’m going to be that old daddy.”

Benet recently performed songs from his upcoming album at Philly R&B and Soul Station WDAS-FM. Although the project is still untitled, Benet has released the first single, entitled “Real Love,” for listeners to enjoy. Eric and Manuela were married earlier this year.

The new baby will join older sister India Benet,18.
