*An online statement confirmed Tuesday that Season 3 “Sunday Best’ winner Le’Andria Johnson is pregnant.
Viewers suspected that the slight bulge in her clothing during a recent appearance on BET’s “Celebration of Gospel” was a baby bump and rumors began to swirl.
Johnson, 29 is a single mother of three.
In the statement (that follows in its entirety) the mommy-to-be acknowledges she needs prayerful support while carrying baby number four and managing the demands of a new career and motherhood:
“In recent weeks, there have been numerous published reports stating that I am pregnant. I would like to take this time to confirm that I am pregnant and due in September. I have been feeling well and maintaining a healthy appetite. I have been busy traveling around the country with my music ministry. One can only imagine that as a mother and mother-to-be, my plate is quite full—taking the kids to school, doing homework, cooking—regular mother duties. I have been blessed to have the love and support of my church, family, friends, label, management, and fans. I have received so many beautiful and thoughtful notes and prayers from people all over the country. I ask that you continue to pray for me and my family. I cannot do this alone. I will continue to pray for God’s guidance and protection over my life. I love you all very much and I will be in touch soon.” – Le’Andria Johnson
