The former American Idol fifth-season finalist -- who will turn 20 on August 21 -- is expecting the birth of a baby girl in October, Bennett's mom Jamecia told the Minneapolis - St. Paul Star Tribune on Thursday.

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

Jamecia declined to comment on the identity of the baby's father at his request.

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

While the father may not want to be identified at the time being, Jamecia told the Star Tribune that he has given Bennett a "ring" -- making mom "hopeful" that a wedding is in the works.

An August baby shower is currently being planned for Bennett, according to the Star Tribune, and the guest list could include such celebrities as her grandmother, gospel and R&B singer Ann Nesby, and singer and actress Queen Latifah.

Nicknamed "Princess P" during her Spring 2006 Idol run -- in which she finished fifth -- Bennett's second album is reportedly slated to drop later this year.
