leandria johnson*Leandria Johnson gave birth to her fourth child on September 12, 2012.

“It’s a healthy baby boy! Thanks for your prayers and support!,” she said of the birth of Carrington Forrest Walker, who was born to the Grammy-winning gospel singer and her “long-time mate” Forrest Walker.  (A highly credible source tells us the pair plan to wed.)  Little Carrington weighed  in at 6 lbs. and14 ozs.

Johnson, a twice divorced, 29-year-old licensed minister worked throughout the pregnancy against scrutiny.  In her most recent appearance, her baby bump was on full display as she performed on Season  5 of “Sunday Best,” the show that ignited her career two years ago.

Johnson was shunned in some church circles for singing sacred music while expecting a child “out of wedlock.”

The soulful vocalist plans to take a break to spend time with her family and newborn.

Perhaps her current singles (from the forthcoming live album “Leandria Johnson: The Experience,” due in stores September 18) “Complicated,” “If Jesus Can’t Fix It” and “My Story Continues” best sum up Le’Andria Johnson’s outlook for the future a press release indicates.

When she returns to music ministry, Johnson hopes her experience will help women who have undergone similar circumstances.
