LaKisha Jones has a lot to celebrate now that she’s expecting a baby and a new CD.
This will be the former “American Idol” contestant’s first child with new husband Larry Davis. It’s been a whirlwind romance for the couple who met in March 2008; they got married in Beverly Hills that October.
Now, LaKisha’s about five months along with a baby girl. The pregnancy was a welcome surprise for her and Larry, who she says will be an excellent daddy.
"He’s very excited, but I think he’s going to do good. You know, he’s a very caring individual," LaKisha told S2S. "I think he’s going to do a good job, I really do."
We’re sure the new addition will be daddy’s little girl. LaKisha, however, is relieved she’ll be having a daughter, since she really doesn’t want boys. She already has a 6-year old daughter named Brionne.
"I’m a girly girl and my daughter can come anywhere with me. …When I’m getting nails done, she’s getting her little nail polish on, " LaKisha said. "I think if I had a boy it would be a different dynamic."
From what LaKisha told us, Brionne, is already stepping into the role of big sister by helping pick things out for the baby.
Little sister is due in August, and is enjoying all the pampering and attention the pregnancy has to offer.
In the meantime, LaKisha is getting ready to drop her debut album, So Glad I’m Me on May 16. The first single, "Let’s Go Celebrate," has been released electronically and is now available for download.
