Singer Jasmine V (aka Jasmine Villegas) has just announced she’s expecting her first child and is six months along in the pregnancy!
On being young, unmarried, and in the middle of her career: “Well, it came as a total shock. You take the test, and you’re not sure, and then you take another one. It was a very crazy moment for me; I never thought I would have a baby at 22, but I’m definitely excited. I’m super excited to meet my baby and to be a mom.”
On her boyfriend, who she declined to name: “Everything is going well, and he’s very supportive.”
On being pregnant: “The fact that I’m still young made me so nervous. You never know what people will say. 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. 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.”
Justin and Jasmine were a rumored couple several years ago and she appeared in his music video for “Baby.” Congrats to Jasmine on the exciting news!
