Fantasia Barrino just had a baby with shady boyfriend Antwaun Cook, but he's already running around, according to reports ... with his estranged wife.

According to insiders, Antwaun regrets giving up on Paula Cook and their two kids and while Paula is very hurt, relations are thawing between them.

Possibly while naked, we're saying.

"Paula and Antwaun both ended up at Club RE:Public in Charlotte over the weekend and things got a little cozy between the two," the source said.

"I don't know where Fantasia was, but she definitely wasn't in the club where they were! Antwaun was shoving his tongue down [Paula's] throat."

The source continued by saying that while Paula was receptive, she did not want to make a scene and was still a little gun-shy with all the PDA.

However, "he told Paula she belongs to him because she's still his wife!"

So according to this story, the home-wrecker, who was also accused of cheating on Fantasia in January, is wrecking a new home with his old one.

Fantasia Barrino is the recent mother of a baby sired by long-time, controversial boyfriend Antwaun Cook. So all must be right for these proud new parents, right? Sadly... wrong.

A friend tells Radar Online that Cook - who allegedly started his relationship with the former American Idol victor while still married - is the same dishonest man he's always been.

"Antwaun has been cheating on Fantasia all along, just like he cheated on his wife with Fantasia," this insider says. "She was silly to think he'd remain faithful... She purposely had this baby with him hoping he'd be a devoted father and boyfriend."

This pal says Cook isn't merely pulling a Tiger Woods, either, banging random cocktail waitresses: he's actually tried to reconcile with his ex-wife!

"He tries to get Paula to take him back all the time, but she wants nothing to do with him," the source claim,, adding that Fantasia turns a "blind eye" to the infidelity.

Barrino and Cook have made headlines for all the wrong reasons for over a year. The former was actually sued by Cook's former wife in late 2010, but a judge decreed that Fantasia was not legally a homewrecker and did not owe any damages.

Fantasia has not gone public with the identity of the new child's father, but it's been strongly reported that he's Barrino's long-time boyfriend, Antwaun Cook.

Fantasia Barrino refuses to sit around and let rumors about herself spread. Well, most rumors, that is.

The singer called in to The Wendy Williams Show today because that host had referenced the recent flap over Fantasia's role in a Mahalia Jackson biopic, with producers allegedly angry over her pregnancy and thinking about replacing her as the lead.

Barrino said this is the first she's heard of such an issue... but also that she's never signed any kind of contract to actually appear in the film. Fantasia also reveals the gender of her baby and her due date.

But scoop on married baby daddy Antwaun Cook? Watch what happens when Williams brings that name up:

Fantasia Barrino is pregnant with her first child. This is exciting for the former American Idol champion, but the blessed event is not without its controversy:

The father is Antwaun Cook, a married man with whom Fantastia carried on a well-publicized affair.

This fact is not sitting well with those behind Mahalia!, the biopic based on the life of gospel singer Mahalia Jackson, as producers and members of that artist's family are angry that Fantasia both kept the pregnancy a secret and got involved with Cook in the first place.

“The family thinks if Fantasia plays the role, it’s going to sully the name of Mahalia,” executive producer Adrian Taylor tells Page Six. “They think she’s got the wrong image, having a child out of wedlock.”

Barrino's expecting state has also delayed production and may force directed Euzhan Palcy out of the project due to a scheduling conflict. Producers hope to complete filming by 2012, but may need to find a replacement for Fantasia if she insists on time off to breast feed and take care of her newborn.

The top rumored choice to take over if this happens? Missy Elliott.

Fantasia Barrino appeared at a charity event over the weekend for the opening of the Riverview Apartments in Jacksonville, Florida. But the former American Idol champion did a lot more than sing at the event.

She announced to a crowd of supporters: I'm pregnant! See/hear for yourself right now:

Fantasia did not reveal the identity of the baby's father, but we can safely assume he's Antwaun Cook, the man with whom Barrino has been involved for years.

She actually aborted Cook's child in early 2010, a fact Fantasia was forced to admit when Cook's wife actually sued the singer for wrecking the couple's home in North Carolina.

Barrino has since been cleared of any wrongdoing and we wish her and her new family nothing but health and happiness.
