It was a blessed Sunday for Fantasia Barrino and her husband Kendall Taylor, who announced the birth of their first child together, daughter Keziah Taylor.

The American Idol season three champion posted an Instagram photo of herself while pregnant standing in front of an elephant. She explained the significance.

“The elephant is the animal I chose to surround @keziahlondontaylor with because it represents patience, strength, power, and remembrance,” Fantasia commented. “Just a few of the qualities that her presence has brought into our lives and their world.”

The couple married in July 2015 and after hoping for a baby for several years, their dream finally became a reality.

“We were patient waiting on you to enter this world and we will always remember the strength that it took for me and @salute1st to create something as powerful as your life itself,” the “I Believe” singer continued. “Happy Birthday to our little Angel 5-23-21 and may God keep and cover you for the rest of your days!”

For Kendall, it was a very special moment to watch his wife give birth.

“Today I experienced something that rewrote my personal definition of a Black Woman,” he posted. “To observe my Queen @tasiasword bring my little Angel @keziahlondontaylor into this world elevated my understanding and sense of pride, respect, and admiration for black women…Happy Birthday to my little Kezzy Bear!”

The happy couple posted a video and several photos of their baby shower. Fantasia lovingly commented, “I Love You King You gave me a Beautiful little Princess.”

Barrino has two sons from previous relationships: 19-year-old Zion and Dallas, who’s 10.
