In December 2020, Barrino went on The Tamron Hall Show to dish about her pregnancy and revealed conceiving was not easy this time around. "This is a three-year journey we've been on," she shared. After a doctor told her one of her fallopian tubes was closed, the singer decided to pause and "let God be God." But things changed quickly. "I kid you not, I forgot about it," she said. "And then I woke up one night, and I was just like, 'Something's different.'"

She took six pregnancy tests and threw the positive one at Taylor. Barrino was "so excited" — we would be too!
