"Toni is really worried about her father, a minister. She was raised in the church and she wants to get married and then tell him the good news.

"After she found out she was having a baby, Toni told executives at her record company that she would not be able to promote her new album that much," a record company insider told The ENQUIRER.

"Toni doesn't want to risk losing the baby by traveling a lot so she's put her foot down about making appearances."
