Sinead O'Connor expecting fourth child

05/25/2006 at 07:39 AM ET

Sinead O’Connor is pregnant with her fourth baby.  She is due Christmas Eve. The baby daddy is her partner Frank Bonadio. Her other children are Jake, 18, with first husband, drummer John Reynolds; Roisin, 10, with Irish Times columnist John Waters; and two-year- old Shane, with musician Donal Lunny.

Sinead was not pregnant with the baby while photographed smoking in Manhattan earlier this spring with Frank. She told the Daily Mail, "I want people to know the baby is due on Christmas Eve, so they will know I could not have been pregnant when I was smoking."

4 children by 4 different men wow she has been busy!

Lets hope that she has given up smoking for her baby.

I wish her all the best.

Her first 3 children are 8 years apart, hardly a “busy” woman. Congrats to her on the new baby.

I think Michelle means she is “busy” because all 4 kids have 4 different fathers not because they were born in a short amount of time.

Autumn on

Yeah Sinead’s older kids were all 8 years apart each, however I agree with Michelle, the ethics/morality of having four kids by four different men is something else indeed!

At least her youngest two will be close enough in age to really grow up together and be good playmates.

Congrats to Sinead and her kids.

Oh, I fully understood the dig on her sexual history. I meant that I don’t really see how having 4 different fathers is that awful since they were spaced out that much. I hardly think that it makes her immoral. It’s not like she had her kids all in a 6 year span with different fathers. Things happen, life changes.

This is not a joke or rude comment but I could have sworn Sinead became a lesbian a little while ago and also decided to become a catholic priest of some sort. Was that all a rumor?

Kristine on

Congrats to her. :-)

Rye, she came out as bisexual about 3 years ago, stating that while more of her sexual relationships have been with men, she has has relationships with men. I don’t know about the Catholic priest thing though.

Congratulations!

So she has four kids by four fathers but Sinead has always been known as controversial. It’s not a huge deal in these days anymore but it does seem that she’s the type of woman who likes the idea of “sealing” a new love with a baby!

I wish her and her family all the best.

hey, things change and people change. relationships don’t always work out but atleast she’s taking care of her responsibilities. children are blessings whether they are from different fathers or not. congrats to her and her fam!
