Ex-'American Idol' Finalist Paris Bennett Pregnant

Former "American Idol" finalist Paris Bennett is pregnant and expecting a baby girl in October.

The singer, 19, will be 20 when she becomes a mother, reports The Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

Bennett's rep confirmed the pregnancy for People magazine; the news was first reported by MediaTakeOut.com.

Paris' mother, Jamecia Bennett, is thrilled about the news.

"I'm proud of how she did it. I was 16 when I got pregnant," Jamecia told the Star-Tribune.

So far, there is no word on the baby's father.

"He chooses not to be in the public eye," she told the paper. "I respect that."

Paris' mom is hopeful that she'll be planning a wedding.

"She has a ring," said Jamecia.

The 2006 "Idol" released her debut album, "Princess P," in 2007.
