Fantasia, who has two other children from previous relationships β€” Zion Quari, 19, and 8-year-old Dallas Xavier β€” revealed how great it felt to share the news, saying she “can never hide” her pregnancy physically.

The couple also opened up about the fertility issues they faced in the past. The expectant mother discussed how stressful it was. “Just keep waiting on God. It was starting to really depress me and him. They [doctors] was like my tube was closed,” she said.

Kendall, an entrepreneur, stood firm with his beliefs regardless of the circumstances saying, “they kept talking about in vitro, they were gonna do artificial insemination. I remember sitting there in the doctor’s office like I hear what y’all saying but I know what God showed me.” Kendall also mentioned how draining the entire process was on his wife, stating that she “kept getting tired of the ups and downs and the letdowns. I found her in the bathroom crying in the middle of the morning or the middle of the night.”

The songwriter, 36, admitted that the pair found out she was expecting after she decided they weren’t “trying” anymore. Fantasia said she took a test after she started noticing symptoms. “I started having all kinds of weird feelings. So I took one test. I didn’t believe it so I took six.” She later confirmed the results by attending a doctor’s appointment and found out she was two months pregnant.

The next day following the announcement both husband and wife shared the news on their respective Instagram pages. Fantasia wrote, “πΊπ‘œπ‘‘ 𝐼 π‘Šπ‘Žπ‘›π‘‘ π‘‡π‘œ π‘‡β„Žπ‘Žπ‘›π‘˜ π‘Œπ‘œπ‘’!
