BABY ON BOARD: “SUNDAY BEST” WINNER LE’ANDRIA JOHNSON IS EXPECTING!
Season three “Sunday Best” winner, Le’Andria Johnson, is expecting a baby. The twice-divorced, single mother of three is apparently three months pregnant with her fourth child.
Johnson, who took home a Grammy Award earlier this year for Best Gospel/Contemporary Christian Music Performance, showed off her baby bump during both rehearsals and at the television taping of BET’s “Celebration of Gospel,” which was taped on March 16, but airs this Sunday, April 1 at 8PM.
According to onlookers, during rehearsals for the “Celebration of Gospel” telecast, Johnson actually made mention of her pregnancy while performing her hit single “Jesus;” however she didn’t reference it again during the actual show taping.
The 29-year-old vocal powerhouse has become one of “Sunday Best’s” most successful stars. Johnson’s debut EP, The Awakening of Le’Andria Johnson, has sold more than 146,871 copies to date. Oddly, her label, Mathew Knowles’ Music World Gospel has released two other EP’s – Christmas Best (12-6-11) and The Evolution of Le’Andria Johnson (2-14-12) – within six months of The Awakening hitting stores.
With her current whirlwind success and meteoric rise, the timing of Johnson’s new baby definitely doesn’t appear to be something that was planned. However, former “Sunday Best” judges Mary Mary have proven time and time again that one can balance pregnancy and motherhood, while promoting hit records and performing tour dates.
No information is available about whether Johnson has recently married again or who the father of the child is. The singer, who has been quite open about her battles with alcoholism and relationship issues in the past, doesn’t shy away from using her life as a living testimony.
As of now, Music World Gospel has not released a formal statement regarding Johnson. Our personal request for comment to Johnson’s publicist had not been returned at press time.
