Fantasia Barrino is pregnant with her first child with her husband Kendall Taylor. Meanwhile, the American Idol winner recently got candid about her past fertility struggles.
In a PEOPLE exclusive clip from The Tamron Hall Show, Fantasia revealed it has taken her years to conceive naturally.
“At first, we thought we were going to have to do different things. This is a three-year journey we’ve been on.” Explaining that many people had recommended in vitro fertilization to her and Taylor, as they were struggling to get pregnant.
During that time, Barrino says she sought help from a doctor, who initially informed her that one of her fallopian tubes had closed. After she was told “now that one is open, the other one is closed,” Fantasia said the couple decided to take a break and “let God be God.”
“I kid you not, I forgot about it. And then I woke up one night, and I was just like, ‘Something’s different.’ “the singer tells host Tamron Hall.
Barrino says she took a total of six pregnancy tests and threw one of them at Taylor when the results came back positive.” I was so excited,” she gushes.

Though Taylor acknowledges that everybody’s journey is different when it comes to conceiving, he remembers having a gut feeling it was gonna happen naturally for the couple.
“When she threw the test at me, I was like, ‘Yo, you playing? Are you serious?’. And from that point, it just increased our faith even more.” Taylor recalls
The child will be the first for the couple. Fantasia Barrino already has two children from previous relationships. Dallas Xavier, 9, and Zion Quari, 19 while Kendall Taylor is dad to a son named Treyshaun.
