It looks like congratulations are in order!
On Tuesday, it was revealed that Jordin Sparks is married AND has a baby on the way. Who? What? Where? When? How???
According to People, the American Idol alum secretly wed her boyfriend, Dana Isaiah, back in July. The twosome are also expecting their first child together sometime this upcoming spring. Well, well!
“We’re both really excited. 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.”
Awwwww! Apparently, the newlyweds met back in February, when Jordin traveled to Houston over Super Bowl weekend with her charity campaign I’m M.A.D., Are You? According to the couple, their respective moms put them in contact — but not for the reason you may think!
The aspiring model explained:
“My mom was trying to get [Jordin] to talk me out of moving to L.A. because she’s experienced the industry out here. It wasn’t like, ‘We want you guys to date.'”
Nonetheless, there was an undeniable Spark
s between the two. On meeting Dana in person, Jordin recalled:
“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.”
So sweet. By July 16, the love birds were in love enough to elope while on vacation in Hawaii with a small group of friends. The No Air singer dished:
“It just more solidifies the whole team sentiment of a relationship. You know you’re still individuals, but at the same time everything is about ‘we’ and ‘us’ as opposed to ‘you’ and ‘I.'”
Tissues, anyone??? Regardless, the elopement wasn’t the only surprise in store for Sparks and Isaiah’s loved ones. A month after their wedding, the couple learned they were expecting. Sparks continued:
“It’s been really crazy because everything changes. 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!”
That’s the spirit. And despite having previously sworn off love, it seems as though Jordin is truly happy. She concluded:
“I’m extremely grateful because life is nuts. This is the best part so far because I have [Dana] and I have this little one and I have a new family. I’m the most content I’ve ever been in my life.”
We couldn’t be happier for these two. Congrats again, you guys!!
