"I am so excited and blessed to have this opportunity to carry, my prayer, and watch our baby grow," Sheard-Kelly said in a statement. "I'm most excited about raising a game changer, loving someone so deep, and having that same impact my mother had on me. I think I'll be raising one of my best friends!"
News of the Sheard-Kelly's pregnancy comes after the singer had two miscarriages that she said "took me near death's doors.
"God still showed me that He's in charge, and to keep believing. I've been fearful and have worried, but God has sent me constant reminders and ways of affirmation. My husband's faith and declarations have stood in place of my lack many times," Sheard-Kelly said. "He has encouraged me to know that I'm still loved, had we had this moment or not. Getting on one accord helps create our love child, and is growing us closer. I've downloaded faith-based books, prayed every morning over my womb and baby, and surrounded myself with a very supportive and prayerful community."
"As a result, we are here seeing our prayers answered," Sheard-Kelly added. "I've felt the presence of God in my womb and it's been one of the most promising moments I've had in my life."
Sheard-Kelly and her husband got married in December 2020. The gospel singer's pregnancy comes on the heels of the release of her new book, "The Vibes You Feel," and album, All Yours.
