Leandria Johnson: Pregnant, Where is the Daddy?

"Leandria Johnson"

"Leandria Johnson"

Sunday’s Best Season 4 winner, Leandria Johnson, 29  a single mother of three is pregnant .  Now I must say that I am surprised that Ms. Johnson  did not know to take extra precautious measures being a single mom of three  and a proclaimed gospel singing Christian.  Come on now,  let’s keep it Real y’all.

I guess you can tell that The Church Lady is just a tad disappointed. Well at least I am not like  99% of church folk who say all the right things while they are in your face,  then as soon as you are no where in sight, they get busy  with the church chat,  talking behind your back. Chile Pleeze!

Leandria, the CLB Family loves you and want the best for you and yours, but I am going to tell you straight up, I am going to be praying that you will  decide to go on some type of permanent birth control after this one or at least find a husband.

As it strange to me that you announce the baby coming in September, but made no mention of the Baby Daddy.

Leandria Johnson Baby Daddy Named

 By Mona Austin|Eurweb

In the statement (that follows in its entirety) the mommy-to-be acknowledges she needs prayerful support while carrying baby number four and managing the demands of a new career and motherhood:

“In recent weeks, there have been numerous published reports stating that I am pregnant. I would like to take this time to confirm that I am pregnant and due in September. I have been feeling well and maintaining a healthy appetite. I have been busy traveling around the country with my music ministry. One can only imagine that as a mother and mother-to-be, my plate is quite full—taking the kids to school, doing homework, cooking—regular mother duties. I have been blessed to have the love and support of my church, family, friends, label, management, and fans. I have received so many beautiful and thoughtful notes and prayers from people all over the country. I ask that you continue to pray for me and my family. I cannot do this alone. I will continue to pray for God’s guidance and protection over my life. I love you all very much and I will be in touch soon.”   –  Le’Andria Johnson

Johnson shows no signs of slowing down with dates already booked in May.  Since signing with Music World Gospel she has kept a whirlwind calendar, ambitiously releasing 3 projects in less than 6 months.   She continues to stun audiences with the soulful delivery of the single “Jesus,” a ballad from her debut album, “The Awakening of Leandria Johnson”  that is directed at judgmental Christians.  (Johnson won the “Best Gospel Performance”  Grammy for “Jesus” in February.)

    Stop judging and pray for her because truth be told nobody’s life is 100% without sin. Just the mere fact that you are here speaking on her life and her pregnancy is a sin because you are judging her. Stop and think about you and your families lives and the mistakes you once made.

  • Tonah Manchild

    TTThat’s the trouble with the modern Church in this modern age.It’s too easy to just say I am sorry and keep going back to the same old lifestyle and habits.Repenting is more than words,it’s action that produce results! Most of our congregations have unregenerated members with no Holy Spirit or working power to overcome any fleshly habits in their lives!

  • folks, if u are a good judge first introspect urself

  • cookie45

    “NEGATIVE TALK” Let this “Women of God” do what she does. It’s not what you say, It’s in the name of “JESUS” Lol! The first thing Le Andria said, was “JESUS”. LET GO AND LET GOD HANDLE THIS! HE KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING.

  • evelay

    Leandria,

    you have a beautiful voice but all that preaching and testifying that you do means nothing about a mistake you made when you keep doing the same thing over and over. Either you are lying and pulling our legs or it appears that you may have a mental problem!!!!!

    or you could just be getting more information to testify about??????

    What ever your reason for continually screwing up, it is disgusting and a bad example and message to be sending to young girls across the world.

    What you continue to do is a disgrace, no matter how you are praised for it, it is sick and you are not living the life you sing about, therefore I am one fan that is not in your corner anymore!!!!!!

    • Leslie

      I agree. I will not support Le’Andria or any other gospel artist who lives life outside of the will of God.

      • Sandra Lewis

        We are quick to judge people when something happens in their lives, they are human also!!!, God will forgive you over and over, You can’t preach about anything if you haven’t gone through anything!!, I’m a fan of Leandria when she’s up or down!!!, stand my me Lord!, stand by me!

  • nettia

    I think sometimes as christian people we tend to judge….no there is no excuse about getting pregnant out of wedlock,,,But we don’t know the relashonship with her and God. I was 18 and unmarried with my first child..I repented to God for what I had done. Thier is not a perfect christian on earth we as christians are still trying to do Gods will..we do make mistakes we all sin and come short of the glory of God…But God’s love is merciful and patient with us..none of us can cast a stone on someone else or we all would be windowless. lets comfort her and let her know we are praying that God continues to strengthen her and her ministry…Tell her you love her and know she is still a child of God..

  • childofGod

    Well! You are a rude, nasty, insulting individual. What this young women choose to do is her business. I mean u more concern about a precious baby being born then the fact that she is fornicating! Thank God she’s atleast is having the baby and not doing like some folk, having sex and murdering the baby to cover the sin. Let her alone at the end of the day what she does is between her and God not u! Who do u think u are wanting to kno who the father is, if it aint your husband then don’t worry about hers. You gossiping church mouse on the internet with such degradiing foolishness!! Your harsh words and ignorance is just as bad as what u are trying to make her out to be shame on you!!!!

    In these last days of this world, it is so apparent that God is separating the wheat from the ‘tares’. There is so much d_eceipt and hypocrisy. If you teach the Word, it is accepted in this world as long as you don’t live it. That’s when the defenses kick in, “you can’t judge me”, ” we human”, “I’m saved, but don’t get me…..”. I could go on and on, but I’ll let the Word talk, because ‘the Word is as sharp as a two edged sword’, Hebrew. 4:12. Gal. 6:7, “do not be decieved, God cannot be mocked. We reap what we sow. “For the time has come for ‘judgement’ to begin @ the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the Gospel of God?” 1 Pet. 4:17. Does the Word not teach us that fornicators will not make it to heaven and having s child out of marriage brings a child uncovered by the covenant of husband and wife, this child is called a ‘bastard’. Brethren do you know that ‘we as Christians can judge each other, but those outside Jesus, God judges’, 1 Cor. 5:12. Lastly, ‘a tree is known by its fruit’, Matt. 12:33. Be in the world, not of the world’. We as Christians for our children as well as this world, must make a difference. ‘Be ye perfect as God is perfect, be ye holy as God is holy’. I don’t believe He would have told us this if He believed we couldn’t do it. ‘Do you not know that your body is the temple of God’, 1 Cor. 6:19. There was no pleasure in sharing these Words to hurt, but only to share knowledge to defeat Satan and his lies. Please believe and receive so that we may be the light and salt of this evil world. Its time to stop compromising, God said he would rather you be hot or cold, but if you are lukewarm, He will spew you from His mouth. May God bless and keep us all until his return.

      We as Christians and the Church has made sin so easy to practice because we live on Cheap Grace. That mean I can sin and just ask God to forgive me and go do it again.And if anyone try to correct me then all I have to say is,Who are you to judge? God is not mocked and whatsoever a man or woman sowth that shall they reap. Jesus didn’t suffer and die so that the Children of grace could get a free pass to sin! We are to hold those accountable for their action and raise the standards of the Church!

      • So True TONEE, no better reply can be added after your comment. For me, and part of what I have been writing and speaking about for years is the Institutional CHURCH is dead, as it is not what CHRIST intended in first place. (Study your history) The only folks who don’t know the church is dead are the folks sitting in them every Sunday. As for Single mothers this is the future evolution of American Households, this is the NEW NORMAL our country has adopted. Men will no longer live in the households with their children and the mothers of their children. Unlike women, men need a reason to mature, and most women cannot tell the difference. Men will only rise to responsibility when there is an IMPETUS to do so. So, so long as women adopt the myth of “Casual Sex”, and “Sexual Equality”, men will just Hit and Run until Jesus returns.

    • dj

      thats just what i wanted to say but you said it better!

    • Leslie

      You are right! We need to stop making excuses for people and using cliches like “don’t judge”. We are judged by the fruit we bear.

  • JEANETmarie

    C’mon people. Four children and no husband at 29? Almost 70% of black children are born to single mothers and while I don’t want to play the shame game, this is a major problem in many black communities. I don’t have to recite the statistics. We all know them. Something is terribly wrong and I pray she has emotionally and spiritually stable people in her life to help her figure it out and stop giving her a pass to repeat this troubling situation.

  • Thomiah McEachin

    Church folks really upset me, they are so worried about what everyone else doing. The church is suppose to be a healing place but sinners won’t come if they know ppl are still judging them. Leandria is beautiful person whether she has 5 or 15 kids out of wedlock. She is sharing her gift with the world and may God Continue to bless her. No sin is greater than another sin. Amen

    • Thomiah,
      Thanks for posting and you are correct, Leandria sin is no greater than any other sin,

      but chile you also know by now that we got to keep it real on this site.

      Leandria getting pregnant out of wedlock whether 1 or 10 times is a SIN and we as a church body cannot continue to pick and choose what sins we want to cover up eyes on and those we don’t. And, its not about Judging Leandria, as a church body, we have got to stop putting stuff under the carpet and be willing to speak in truth and in love, even if they are mega church preachers or A list music artists and ministers of music.

      Question: In your view, is Leandria sin of getting pregnant out of wedlock multiple times, any less than William Balfour, the guy who killed Jennifer Hudson’s family or George Zimmerman killing Travon Martin?

      My point: Should Leandria’s sin be viewed different from the ladder, no. we would expect some sort of repentance for their sins correct?

      Just keeping it real!

      • Lady George

        Since when is having a baby a sin? Last I heard children were blessings from God. Can someone tell me where it states differently?
        The sin was in the act of sex. Which is also last I heard forgivable. I also know that Ms. Johnson asked for prayers during this time. Why are we on here condeming her, S-AINT-S? We all have sinned and fallen short to the Glory of God. And no one sin is greater. When a man/woman repents, God is faithful and just to forgive. Ye who are without sin, cast the first stone.

        By the way, she was married when she gave birth to the other kids. Did y’all miss that memo too?
        Lord forgive them for they know not what they do.

      • Pearl

        Jesus did tell the men who were determined to stone Mary Magdalene to death, “Ye without sin cast the first stone.” However, the problem lies in the fact that many Christians and non-Christians love quoting that scripture but leave out the latter half of what he said to her. Jesus turns to Mary and asks her if she saw any accuser and in John 8:11 Mary replies “No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, AND sin no more. Please don’t be deceived. I was deceived by NOT reading, thoroughly, the WORD OF GOD. Jesus gave Mary a directive which means he EXPECTED and/or DESIRED something from her: GO and sin NO MORE! We’re not perfect but something is very, very wrong if we continue doing the same mess over & over again. Now, that’s real

  • Rodgers

    I just want to say this. Be carefull not to judge others. I am 26 years old and I look up Leandria Johnson. I am greatful for her ministry. However, I feel that the only person that will have consequences of her decision is her. Because she is pregnant does not mean that God will take his anointing away from her neither will she go to hell. I pretty sure that Leandria asked God to forgive her and she has moved on. Now, its up to us as TRUE FANS to lift her up in prayer as she go through this as we as being in the industry. I love you Leandria Johnson and I pray that the baby and you stay Healthy always. PS The main people that is Judging her is going to be the person that bust HELL wide open. God Bless
    The reason I know this is because I went through the same thing in church but just under a different situation. Don’t put your mouth on her speak blessing and protection over her. #TeamLeandria

    • TONEE

      I like the way the Church is now using the worldly methods of sinful practices by sayin g,”Take extra Precaution”.The bible never approved of a way for us to have sex out of marriage and appear holy to those in the Church.No wonder the world don’t believe our report any more! We act just like them!

      • Leslie

        Exactly!!

  • April

    ok, first of all she is human. we keep forgetting that. second of all just b/c you didn’t get caught in your mess don’t give you a right to judge. sin is sin, so stop complaining and pray for her. God doesn’t create mistakes, and the last time i check He is her judge. if God didn’t want that child here, then the child would not have been conceived. ALL things work together, meaning that out of our mistakes becomes testimonies that will help another person who is a babe in Christ. We wonder why ppl run away from the church? b/c we are the most judgmental ppl on this earth. when the woman that committed adultery was brought before Jesus, HE said sin no more. WE MAKE MISTAKES PEOPLE. if we continue in our sin, then we have to answer to God and not man, but when we confess our sin, then GOD FORGIVES us. pray for her and stop talking about her. you are not helping the situation at all by GOSSIPING. YOU DO KNOW THAT IS A SIN, RIGHT?

  • TOOMUCH4ME

    • Leslie

      So true!

    • Doubly True! They are fakes and only Stupid People follow fakes.

  • Peeps

    1 Corinthians 6:3 Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more the things of this life!

    “In recent weeks, there have been numerous published reports stating that I am pregnant. ARE YOU COMING OUT BECAUSE THESE REPORTS WERE PUBLISHED? I would like to take this time to confirm that I am pregnant and due in September. CONFIRMING OR CONFESSING? I have been feeling well and maintaining a healthy appetite. WHAT ABOUT YOUR SPIRITUAL APPETITE? OTHER THAN FEELING WELL AND EATING RIGHT ONE MUST ADD, YOU HAVE BEEN FORNICATING. I have been busy traveling around the country with my music ministry. YOU HAVE BEEN HYPOCRITICAL, EXPRESSING DELIVERANCE AND SPREADING FALSE RELIGION TO YOUR FANS! One can only imagine that as a mother and mother-to-be, my plate is quite full—taking the kids to school, doing homework, cooking—regular mother duties. YOU’RE SAUCER IS FULL TOO. OK, SO YOU WANT TO TAKE OUR MIND OFF OF HOW HARD IT IS BEING A MOTHER AND HOW EASY IT IS TO BE A FORNICATOR! YOU WANT SYMPATHY FOR SINNING. I have been blessed to have the love and support of my church, family, friends, label, management, and fans. OK, SO NOW YOU WANT THE REST OF US TO JOIN THOSE WHO ARE UPHOLDING YOU IN YOUR WRONG. I have received so many beautiful and thoughtful notes and prayers from people all over the country. HAVE YOU RECEIVED ANY OPEN REBUKE FROM YOUR PARENTS/PASTORS? I ask that you continue to pray for me and my family. LORD HELP ALL OF US, NOT OUR WILL LORD BUT YOURS BE DONE. I cannot do this alone. YOU ARE RIGHT YOU DID NOT DO THIS ALONE. WHERE IS THE BABY’S FATHER? THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE. SHOULDN’T HE CONFIRM (CONFESS) TOO! I will continue to pray for God’s guidance and protection over my life. CONTINUE? I love you all very much and I will be in touch soon.” IN OTHER WORDS… OKAY, I’VE PUT IT OUT THERE! PLEASE DON’T STOP COMING TO MY CONCERTS, BUYING MY MUSIC AND I WILL SEE YOU AT THE NEXT PERFORMANCE: SIN, RESULT OF SIN AND HYPOCRISY. I DRANK AND I SANG, I FORNICATE AND I SANG, WHAT’S NEXT? I’m sorry abortion was not an option. ABSTINENCE AND MARRAIGE WERE OPTIONS.

  • Lady Dee

    Wow!We are talking about birth control instead of keeping your legs closed until wed.Really?!?The issue is not about birth control,how many kids she has,or why the unborn child’s father was not mentioned.Its about her singing about deliverance and isnt fully delivered herself.I love her and believe God has a calling on her life,but she needs to sit down and we need to do as the bible says and cover her until she gets up.4yrs ago,At 21 I had a child out of wedlock and my Bishop said I had to sit down and stop singing in the choir until my child was born.I didnt understand it then but I get it now.Its hard listening to someone ministering to you when their not living right.Its not about judging bc we all fall short but we cannot allow our sins to be a stumbling block for others that are trying,want,or need to be delivered.My prayers are with Leandria and her family.May God HEAL,DELIVER,and bring RESTORATION!…Thats the God I serve!!!

    • Lady Dee,
      Thank you for keeping it real. You made a good point. As modern day Christians, we have to stop sugar coating everything and do what the elders did back in the day when we sinned in the black church. They made us sit down until we get it together.

      Now they did not kick you out but everybody and their Moma knew you sinned and came out the woodwork to pray for you (and be nosey).

      What can I say except you are 100% correct, it is not about birth control at all.

      Chile, you got the church lady straight tonight, bless you and keep it coming cause that’s what this site is all about, Keeping it REAL!

    • Tasha

      I will have to agree. And my pastor did not tell me to sit out, i felt in my spirit that it was the right thing to do because i did not want to lead people in the wrong way. CHRISTIANS MUST know and remember that the sin is in the sex and not the child, however, it is important to not condone unwed sex and pregnance. I too had a child out of wedlock and i did not forgive MYSELF. it was with the help of other true believers that told me to rejoice in my blessing ( my son) but learn from and repent for my sin!

    • Shan P

      Lady Dee & Churchlady,

      You both made valid, awesome points. I was sat down after getting pregnant..my daughter was 6mnths old by the time I was allowed to resume any position in the church. While I pray for Leandria I believe she needs to sit down, seek God, definitely change some of the people in her circle, and wait on her time to get back up again. How can she fully expect to minister to anyone and she obviously is not living what she is singing right now. I have to say MaryMary was out for a while and we never heard anything about them like this. They didn’t start having their babies until they were married. Leandria had issues getting her first cd out because she openly admitted after winning Sunday Best she went right back to her old sinful life…their has to be accountability. I will continue to lift her up in prayer.

  • TONNE WALKER

    Birth Control is not the answer for the Church! God do not honor those that take birth control and engage in sexual activities ,no more than he does those that engage in sex without the pill! The Church need to practice what it believes !

  • Vennie

    God is merciful and forgives. However, there are consequences for your actions. Back in the day, when you messed up like that, you had to sit down for a while. Now people are messing up and they can come back like two weeks or one month later. Are people who are well known in “Christiandom” exempted from that or something. Something’s wrong with that.

    • I remember those days too Vennie and yes, it is something wrong with that.
