Fantasia Barrino has revealed the sex of her baby – and that she’s due Dec. 29.

“I’m having a boy. I’m at home, I’m on bed rest right now,” she said Tuesday in a phone interview on The Wendy Williams Show.

Barrino – already mother to a daughter Zion, 9 – still has not spoken about the baby’s father, but the singer has most recently been romantically linked to Antwaun Cook. Their relationship made headlines last summer after his divorce from Paula Cook was linked to his affair with Barrino, 27.
