I tell you what shocks me even more than the pregnancy & that is that she is working on a second album. There must be somebody with deep pockets backing her.
Tell me this is not true! I mean, not the pregnancy, the baby's name! It cannot be! Come on people, what happened to sweet and "normal" names for the babies?Originally Posted by bbnbama;3082887;

Paris Bennett, 19, the Idol singer who was an early favorite – and an early ejection – in the show's fifth season in 2006, is expecting her first child, the Minneapolis StarTribue reports.
The Rockford, Ill., native's mother, Jamecia Bennett, told the paper that the father "chooses not to be in the public eye." She added that Paris "has a ring" and is expecting to have a baby shower in August

Link HereAmerican Idol' singer Paris Bennett, who finished fifth in Season 5, is pregnant with her first child, the Star Tribune reports.
"This makes five generations," Bennett's mother Jamecia told the Minnesota paper.
"I'm proud of how she did it. (HUH??? )I was 16 when I got pregnant," she added. Paris, who is 19 now, will be 20 when the baby is born.
Bennett's mom also hints there may be a wedding in the works for her young 'Idol.'
"She has a ring," Bennett said of her daughter.
The picture they had published..."American Idol" 2006 contestant Princess P is becoming a mommy.
Paris Bennett is expecting a baby girl in October and will be 20 when mommyhood arrives.
"This makes five generations," an overjoyed Jamecia Bennett, told me Thursday.
Jamecia, who like her daughter and mother is a singer, is absolutely over the moon about being a first-time grandmother.
"I'm proud of how she did it. I was 16 when I got pregnant," said Jamecia.
Paris' great-grandmother is Shirley T. Bennett, 75, of Rockford, Ill.; her grandmother Ann Nesby, a gospel and R&B powerhouse, who lives in Atlanta, was with the Sounds of Blackness.
Who's the daddy? "He chooses not to be in the public eye," said Jamecia. "I respect that." What does he do for a living? "I can't tell," she said.
"She has a ring," said Jamecia, who's hopeful that she'll be planning a wedding for Paris.
The planning for an August baby shower is already underway. A few celebrities may fly into town for the show, including Queen Latifah.
Latifah has made it clear that she plans to spoil this baby with gifts and that she won't be stopped. You're the princess but I'm the queen, Jamecia said Latifah told Paris.
National magazines have been calling looking for baby info, but Jamecia said she's played it cool. "We tend to stay out of the media," Jamecia said. "The only person we let know [personal] things is you."
Um, then why did I have to hear about this pregnancy elsewhere?
MediaTakeOut.com published photos of Paris and her grandmother. The website was not sure whether the photos confirmed web gossip about Paris being pregnant or whether she needs "to be pushing back from the table just a tad bit."
Jamecia said she's be surprised how tame, and relatively kind, MediaTakeOut has been. "You know they can be something else," said Jamecia.
