Fantasia Barrino has been through quite the ordeal over the past year or so, but the former American Idol champion now has a reason to smile: she's a new mother!

The singer gave birth to a son named Dallas Xavier Barrino today. He was born in North Carolina and checked in at 7 lbs., 9 oz. and 21 inches long. Fantasia also has a 10-year old daughter from a previous relationship.

It's Fantasia!

"I feel so blessed that my son Dallas Xavier was born healthy, and is a wonderful new addition to our family," the 27-year old tells People. "I thank all my fans for their well wishes and continued support."

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 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.
