Barrino sought medical help before becoming pregnant, but a doctor informed her that one of her fallopian tubes had closed. She turned to the Bible for spiritual guidance after seeking help from her physician.

After the announcement of her pregnancy, Barrino happily revealed the baby's gender - a girl. Their baby is the latest addition to their blended family.
