"You are the first persons that I share this news with," the singer, 27, told the crowd. "And I share this with you because I can relate to you. And for a while I walked around figuring out what will they say and what will they think about me. But now I tell you I don't live my life for folk."

It's the second child for Barrino, whose daughter Zion turns 10 next week. The star hasn't yet confirmed the identity of her baby-to-be. Last August, she admitted that she was having an affair with a married man, Antwaun Cook, and overdosed on aspirin in a suicide attempt.
