Jordin Sparks Announces That She’s Not Only Married, But Pregnant, Too!
Jordin Sparks had an eventful summer, but we’re just finding out about it now. The American Idol alum told People magazine that she and boyfriend Dana Isaiah secretly got married back in July and is expecting her first baby in late spring 2018.
“We’re both really excited,” the 27-year-old told the mag. “He’s been like, ‘I want to shout it from the mountain tops!’ We’re really proud to be married to each other and to be celebrating this.”
The singer actually met the aspiring model’s family first back in February, and they were initially put in a text message group chat together.
“My mom was trying to get [Jordin] to talk me out of moving to L.A. because she’s experienced the industry out here,” the 25-year-old said. “It wasn’t like, ‘We want you guys to date.'”
Dana flew out to Los Angeles about a month later and the now-married couple met in person for the first time.
Jordin explained, “A couple days after we had actually met, I was like in my head ‘That’s going to be my husband! That’s my husband right there.’ When I’m with him, I feel comfort and safety and calm and peace, and those aren’t things that I normally felt. So it was a little wake-up call for me.”
The pair eloped during a trip to Hawaii on July 16 and then found out that they were expecting at the end of August.
“It’s been really crazy because everything changes,” Jordin continued. “Once we got over the initial shock of it, now again just like it is with the marriage, to be able to share that this amazing thing is happening, it’s such a great thing. We did this together!”
The brunette beauty says she’s “extremely grateful” for everything that’s happened to her over the past year.
“This is the best part so far because I have [Dana] and I have this little one and I have a new family,” she gushed. “I’m the most content I’ve ever been in my life.”
