Elaine Welteroth Announces Pregnancy In A Beautiful Video Including A Lullaby From Husband

Love is in the air!

Elaine Welteroth announced her pregnancy with a beautiful video montage featuring an original lullaby from her husband, The Grio reports. 

Journalist, editor, author, and TV host Elaine Welteroth recently announced that she’s expecting a child with her husband, musician Jonathan Singletary. The couple took to social media to share the good news, sharing a video montage to both of their accounts. 

The video featured heartwarming moments from the first pregnancy test to an ultrasound appointment, Welteroth exclaiming, “I’m freaking out right now. This baby looks exactly like Jonathan!”

Singletary also scored the montage, featuring an original lullaby written by the dad-to-be where he sings, “Hey, little birdie by my window.” 

“New creative collab with @jonathansingletary dropping spring 2022. #JesusTookTheWheel Lullaby by my baby daddy-to-be,” Welteroth captioned her post. 

Singletary called the announcement “life-altering, world-shifting, praise-and-worship-inducing news,” thanking everyone in advance for their prayers.  

Last spring, the couple got married in a “virtual quarantine stoop wedding” in Brooklyn that many praised as a beautiful moment of Black love when the ceremony went viral. Fans and colleagues now circled back around, taking to their comments once again to congratulate them on the good news. 

Ava DuVernay wrote, “Yes! Now, the whole world knows and joins in eager anticipation. Safe journey, Little One! You are a blessing already.”

CNN’s Abby Phillip, who just welcomed a baby girl with her husband, also sent well wishes. 

“Ahhh!! Congratulations!! So thrilled for you both,” Phillip wrote. 

Welteroth spoke to PEOPLE magazine about her and her husband’s excitement, saying, “I’m just excited to learn more about what this new life is here to teach us. I’m already learning so much from this experience. We are both excited to experience new levels of love.” 

Congratulations, Elaine and Jonathan!
