While announcing her pregnancy over the weekend, Fantasia Barrino was tight-lipped about the identity of the baby’s father but many assumed the unborn child’s father would be Antwaun Cook, the married man she had an affair with.
Radar Online recently confirmed the father to be Cook, adding that he is still married to estranged wife Paula Cook.
“Antwaun told Paula that Fantasia was pregnant early on,” an insider told Radar. “He wanted her to hear it from him before word got out in the press. Paula was really hurt when he left her for Fantasia, so it’s like the knife that was already in her back is being twisted now.”
A happy Fantasia announced her pregnancy at a charity event for the opening of the Riverview Apartments in Jacksonville, Florida on Sunday, July 31. The 27-year-old told the crowd, “This child that I carry. God has given me this child. And I don’t have to hide it from none of y’all.”
As far as Cook, he is set to convene with Paula in a North Carolina courthouse on Wednesday, August 10 as they still try to figure out their accurate date of separation.
