Singer Fantasia Barrino recently revealed that she was rushed to a hospital after experiencing early contractions six months into her pregnancy with her unborn daughter.
On Easter Sunday morning, Barrino said in an Instagram Story video: “Good morning. We’ve been in the hospital all day. We have to stay in the hospital for a while. My baby girl thinks she’s missing something out here, but she’s got to stay in here a little longer.”
She added, “My contractions are starting to come down now,” she said. “My body is just tired, but we’ve got this.”
“At first, we thought we were going to have to do different things,” Fantasia said of her and Kendall’s efforts to conceive. “Everybody was suggesting IVF because it wasn’t happening. This is a three year journey we’ve been on,” the celebrity shared.
“We went back in and found out that one of my tubes were closed. We went back and she says, ‘Now that one’s open. The other one’s closed,’” Fantasia said of the process. “We were just kind of like, ‘Okay, wait a minute.’ We decided, ‘Let’s just pause. Let’s let God be God. And if this is something that he wants for us to truly have, [then it will happen].’”
“We said, ‘Let God be God. We’re going to sit back and just see what happens,’” Fantasia told Tamron Hall. “I forgot about it,” the celebrity added. “I stopped following the tracker because I have the GLOW app. I was like, ‘Just forget it.’ And I woke up one night and I was just like, ‘Um, something’s different.’ I took the test. I took six tests. … I threw the test at him. I was so excited.”
The unborn child will be the first for Fantasia and Kendall together. The couple already have children from previous relationships.
