Fantasia was hospitalized after experiencing contractions only six months into her pregnancy.
the singer shared the news on Instagram on Easter Sunday. “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 panned the camera to her husband, Kendall Taylor, who was sleeping on the hospital couch. “I thank God for my husband,” she said. “He’s over there knocked out, poor thing. He’s been riding in there with me.”
The “When I See You” singer ended the message with a positive note. “My contractions are starting to come down now,” she said. “My body is just tired, but we’ve got this.”
The couple is expecting their first child after sharing their experience of having trouble conceiving. “At first, we thought we were going to have to do different things,” the singer said at the time. “Everybody was suggesting IVF because it wasn’t happening.”
Throughout the pandemic they took to Instagram live to share their personal stories, especially about their new vegan lifestyle.
Fantasia and her husband have been together since 2015 and got married after three weeks of dating. During an appearance on the Tamron Hall Show she shared that it’s been a three-year journey to conceive naturally.
“I kid you not, I forgot about it,” she told the talk show host. “And then I woke up one night, and I was just like, ‘Something’s different.’”
Please pray for Fantasia and the safety of her baby.
