Fantasia reveals gender of her third child, “It’s a girl”

Fantasia Barrino is gearing up to welcome a baby girl into her growing family!

The songstress, who is pregnant with her third child — her first with husband Kendall Taylor — shared the exciting news with fans on Tuesday. 

On Instagram Stories, videos from the American Idol alum’s gender reveal party showed her family cheering with excitement as pink fireworks flashed across the sky.

She also shared a post that showed a cartoon baby sitting on a bed of pink, with pink and blue balloons next to building blocks that spelled out the word “baby.” Alongside it she announced, “It’s a girl.”

Fantasia first revealed she was expecting in November, also in an Instagram post. 

“God, I want to thank you! You gave us a seed even when the doctor said that one of my tubes were closed, you said different,” Fantasia wrote at the time. “@Salute1st I love you king and I can’t wait to see who he or she acts like.”

Fantasia is already a mother to eight-year-old son Dallas Xavier, and 19-year-old daughter Zion Quari from a previous relationship, while Taylor is also dad to a son named Treyshaun.
