KeKe Wyatt Says She Received Rude Comments About Baby’s Diagnosis

After the clip of KeKe confessing her baby’s medical diagnosis hit social media, the singer revealed that she received a number of unfavorable comments about the news. KeKe addressed the “rude” critics without revealing exactly what was said.

Instead, KeKe said she was going to pray for the cruel commenters.

“I’d like to send a special prayer out for the rude, cruel people that took time out of their day to get on social media & make disparaging & morbid comments concerning my pregnancy. This past weekend at my show I was very transparent with my amazing fans (who I see as family) about the status of my pregnancy.

I explained to them, the day after my maternity photoshoot my husband & I received the news that our baby tested positive for Trisomy 13 per the doctor.”

The mother of eleven says she shared the unplanned moment to encourage others, despite the backlash.

“It was a moment that wasn’t planned during my show but at the end of the day, I felt in my spirit to share or encourage another woman that might have to face this battle. For all of the disgusting people out there that are wishing ill on me and my baby. Say what y’all want about me, I’m used to it…No weapon formed against me will prosper anyway. BUT an innocent unborn baby?? Be careful putting your mouth on people.”

I will not let the negativity drain all of my positive energy…. I work hard and my husband & I take care of ALL our children with NO help but GODS OoooooKaY! We will continue to believe the report of the Lord! #GodsWillBeDone”
