Fantasia Barrino reportedly posted a photograph of herself affectionately clutching her stomach on social networking site Instagram and fans have begun suspecting that the singer may be expecting another child.
Although it is still unclear when the singer allegedly uploaded the intimate photo, fans suspect that the picture is recent.
The 28-year-old gave birth to her second child Dallas Xavier Barrino, fathered by her on-again, off-again boyfriend Antwaun Cook, on Dec. 13, and fans suspect that she may now be expecting a third child. Critics flocked to social networking site Twitter to weigh in on the reports.
"Fantasia is pregnant with [sic] tht married mans baby again???? What a ----bag," dominique claire tweeted.
"NOT AGAIN!!! Fantasia is pregnant!" Sweet Sweetback tweeted.
"fantasia just had a baby and she pregnant again," keychainz tweeted.
The pregnancy speculation follows news that Cook has allegedly left Barrino for reality TV personality Kendra James, who once appeared on the "Bad Girls Club" reality television show.
James recently posted several intimate photographs of herself with Cook online, which has reignited rumors that he has cheated on Barrino throughout their relationship.
Cook, a former T-Mobile salesman, is still legally married to his estranged wife Paula Cook and he famously left her for Barrino in 2009.
Although Barrino maintains that she and Cook began dating after his separation from Paula was announced, Paula claims that the pair had an affair during the marriage.
"Antwaun has been cheating on Fantasia all along, just like he cheated on his wife with Fantasia," a source previously told Radar Online.
"She was silly to think he'd remain faithful but it was wishful thinking, I guess. She purposely had this baby with him hoping he'd be a devoted father and boyfriend," the source said after Barrino gave birth in December.
She recently broke down in front of her audience while performing on stage at her 28th birthday celebrations in Trinidad, which for some was a sign that she has been left devastated after Cook reportedly left her.
"The only person who will never leave you is Jesus," a distraught Barrino told audience members.
