Antwaun Cook has been confirmed as the father of Fantasia Barrino’s baby, but how did he break the news to his wife?
While Fantasia has only just admitted that she is with child, the singer hasn’t yet said who the father of her baby is. All signs point to Antwaun, who is still married to Paula Cook, and someone from Fannie’s camp has confirmed many folks’ suspicions.
“Antwaun told Paula that Fantasia was pregnant early on,” a source revealed to RadarOnline.com. “He wanted her to hear it from him before word got out in the press. Paula was really hurt when he left her for Fantasia, so it’s like the knife that was already in her back is being twisted now.”
If the hearsay is to be believed, this would be the second time that Fantasia has gotten pregnant by Antwaun. Last year, the singer testified during Antwaun’s divorce proceedings that she had aborted their first child shortly before a failed suicide attempt.
But while Antwaun’s creating another family, he’s still has yet to get matters in his old household hammered out. Specifically, he and Paula have to come to a consensus on when they actually separated.
Antwaun still insists that he and Paula were separated when he started dating Fantasia, while Paula maintains that he cheated on her. Originally the court found in Antwaun’s favor, but he and his estranged wife will meet up in court on August 10 to establish an accurate date for their initial marital split.
