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.” She added, “Happy Birthday to our little Angel 5-23-21 and may God keep and cover you for the rest of your days!

During her pregnancy Fantasia discussed the difficulty she had becoming pregnant. At one point, she needed to be hospitalized due to complications. “Good morning. We’ve been in the hospital all day,” she said. “We have to stay in the hospital for a while. My baby girl thinks she’s missing something out here, but she’s got to stay in here a little longer,” Fantasia wrote on Instagram. The singer only needed to be under the doctors’ care for a few days, however.
