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."

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."
