Fantasia & Her Husband, Kendall Taylor, Welcome Their First Child Together
Fantasia and her husband, Kendall Taylor, are the proud parents of a new baby girl! On May 23, 2021, Fantasia announced to the world via her Instagram account that she has officially given birth and welcomed her daughter, Keziah London Taylor, into the world. The Grammy-Award-winner singer posted her elephant-themed maternity photoshoot image to her page and explained why she picked that creative layout. She wrote,
“The Elephant is the animal I chose to surround @keziahlondontaylor with because it represents patience, strength, power and remembrance. Just a few of the qualities that her presence has brought into our lives and this world. 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. Happy Birthday to our little Angel 5-23-21 and may God keep and cover you for the rest of your days!”
Her husband Kendall Taylor also shared an image of Fantasia looking stunning in a soft heavenly-themed maternity photoshoot. He captioned the picture,
“Today I experienced something that rewrote my personal definition of a Black Woman. 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. “Yahweh, please empower me to lead and protect my wife and children with the highest level of wisdom, power and discipline that I have to capacity to receive!” Happy Birthday to my little Kezzy Bear! #Salute1st”
As previously reported, in November of last year Fantasia and Kendall announced that they were expecting their first child together during their live stream series called ‘Taylor Talks’. The pair also shared that it wasn’t easy for them to get pregnant but they had to keep pushing and keep their faith. Kendall said,
“[The doctors] kept talking about in vitro. They were gonna do artificial insemination. I remember sitting in that doctor’s office and I was like ‘I hear what y’all saying’ I said. But I know what God showed me.”
“My wife kept getting tired of the ups and downs and the letdowns and we think we’re pregnant. I found her in the bathroom crying in the middle of the morning or the middle of the night. She was just like ‘Babe I can’t do this no more. Let’s just let them do it.’ I was like ‘I’m not feeling that.’ God showed us a baby I was like ‘I’m standing tall. I’m a man of God.’”
Fantasia gave birth to her first child in 2001 and her second child 10 years later in 2011. She and Kendall Taylor married in 2015.
Congratulations to Fantasia and Kendall Taylor!!
