Jasmine V Announces Pregnancy, Fans Express Shock
Jasmine V is expecting, much to the shock of her fans worldwide. The “That’s Me Right There” singer announced that she is six months pregnant today (Nov. 2), revealing the baby news exclusively to Cosmo for Latinas.
The 21-year-old mom-to-be wouldn’t reveal the identity of the father, which added to the fans’ hysteria on social media. Nevertheless, Jasmine V, born Jasmine Villegas, is happy and excited to be a mom. However, she is cautious of how people will react to her being young, unmarried and pregnant.
"The fact that I'm still young made me so nervous. You never know what people will say," she told Cosmo for Latinas. "It's looked down on to be young and pregnant in this country. You have shows like 16 and Pregnant, where kids are put on a pedestal to be judged."
"A girl who has a child young is thought of as fast and wild, or as someone who doesn't know how to raise a child," she continued. "But I've always known that I wanted kids, and I know that I'm old enough and that I'm responsible. In Latino culture, it's normal to have kids young."
Although she's young, Jasmine V says she will continue to tour and still record music leading up to the day she gives birth.
"Of course, there are different consequences. I can't run on stage and perform," she states. "And I'll have to work 10 times harder. There will be no 'off' days anymore. I'll still be recording songs though, and I'm thrilled to be sharing my journey through social media."
Speaking of social media, when news broke that Jasmine V is preggers, fans expressed shock and are wondering if 18-year-old singer-actor Ronnie Banks is the father since they have been rumored to be dating each other.
