R&B singer Fantasia Barrino took to Instagram to reveal that her daughter Keziah was born on Sunday, May 23.
However, Fantasia Barrino and her husband, Kendall Taylor, are waiting to take their premature baby home.
Fantasia took to Instagram on Wednesday to say her newborn daughter was "born a little too early but she is a fighter just like her Mother."
"The Wife of A King, the Mother of Two Kings and Two Queens. With it all comes A Fight and Strength like No Other. Out of every one of these Blessings I have named has also come a major Testimony. Keziah was born a little too early but she is a fighter just like her Mother. When you see the words Strength, Determined, Perseverance, and Unbreakable think of Fantasia Monique Taylor."
Fantasia is also mom to son Dallas Xavier, 9, and daughter Zion Quari Barrino, 19.
Tasia is best known for her chart topping hits, "Free Yourself", "When I See U", "Truth Is" and "Bittersweet."
The singer announced her third pregnancy in November while discussing fertility issues in a video. She opened up about her pregnancy journey in an appearance on The Tamron Hall Show in December.
She said it took her years to conceive naturally. "This is a three-year journey we've been on."
R&B singer Fantasia Barrino is a proud mother of three. The American Idol star took to Instagram to reveal that her daughter Keziah was born on Sunday, May 23.
She shared a picture of herself pregnant while photoshopped in front of a picture of an elephant.
"The Elephant is the animal I chose to surround @keziahlondontaylor with because it represents patience, strength, power and remembrance," she wrote. "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!"
Despite being just one day old, baby Keziah already has 28,500 followers on the Instagram page created by Fantasia and her husband Kendall Taylor.
Taylor also marked the newborn's arrival with a throwback pregnancy picture of his other half, writing: "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!"
Fantasia, 36, is already mother to Zion, 19, and Dallas, 9, from previous relationships, while Taylor is dad to a son named Treyshaun.
Fantasia Barrino is pregnant with her third child. The American Idol 2004 winner made the announcement on Twitter Wednesday.
This will be the first child for Fantasia, 36, and her husband Kendall Taylor, 40. In the video, Fantasia said the couple struggled to conceive, and she quoted a Bible scripture about "Rachel".
She said she got inspiration when she read TD Jakes' book, When Woman Pray -- and "I started praying like Rachel."

Then she stood up to reveal her baby bump. "So I would say keep trying, and you will conceive," she told her fans, as Kendall kissed her baby bump.
"We're having a baby, y'all!" he said.
Fantasia already has two children - a son named Dallas with ex-boyfriend Antwuan Cook, and a 19-year-old daughter named Zion Quari Barrino.
Kendall also has a child from a prior relationship. He was previously sued for child support.
Fantasia says more women are single these days because too many women want to be leaders rather than walk alongside their men.
The 35-year-old American Idol winner discussed gender roles in an interview with the Breakfast Club on Monday, Sept. 16.
"We need more men to stand up and lead the way," she said. "Most women are trying to be the leader, that's why you can't find a man. You can't be the king in the house. Fall back and be the queen and let your man lead the way."
The mom-of-2, who is happily married to Kendall Taylor, continued:
"I feel like it's a generational thing, and we can talk and we can go real deep on that, I don't need to start that. But it's a generational curse in how society has placed our men, and women have to stand up and be the mother and the father and the provider. So now, you're so bad you can’t be told nothing that when the right man comes, you lose him because you're trying to be the man."
She said team work is the key to a happy marriage and that women should "learn to submit" and let men be natural born leaders.
"At the end of the day I'm the neck, my man's the head. So he can't make any moves without his wife. It all works together. But you can't be the head of the house. You got to let the man be the head of the house. But it's a generational thing and it's what we've been taught. Stand up, be strong… And a dude comes and everything about you is a man.
"You have to learn how to submit. You can still be a queen. A king needs his queen. It's certain things that he can't see that we see. Anybody play chess? We work together. But the queen has to sit back and allow the king to be the king."
