Recalling the story of Rachel from the holy scripture, Fantasia said she started “to pray like Rachel” then added “Keep trying and you will conceive,” before standing up to reveal her baby bump.

Kendall then gave his wife a kiss on her belly, saying, “Listen to me, a little Taylor baby on the way in these streets.”
