While Fantasia Barrino is out making the media rounds, promoting her new album and explaining her suicide attempt, she may also be having cravings for sushi.

That’s because a report in The National Enquirer says the singer is pregnant. The baby daddy? Her married boyfriend Antwaun Cook.

Insiders tell the tabloids that this is what Fantasia has wanted all along. It will ensure she’ll end up with the man at the center of a divorce and sex tape scandal.

“She’s about three months along, and it’s definitely Antwaun’s baby,” a family friend says. “Right now she can’t show how happy she is in public – but she’s absolutely thrilled. Fantasia got what she wanted. She feels Antwaun will have to marry her now.”

Just a couple weeks ago, Fantasia overdosed on pills and was rushed to the hospital.

Since then, she’s been filmed by reality TV cameras hanging out with Cook and made multiple TV appearances within days of the incident, claiming she really did want to die. Skeptics wonder if this is all related to garnering publicity for her CD, however.

If she was aware of a pregnancy at the time of the overdose, it would lend credence to that theory – or prove that Fantasia is in need of serious help.
