Surprise! Not Only is Jordin Sparks Married – She’s Also Expecting Her First Baby!
This former American Idol winner might have been laying low for awhile, but as it turns out, it was for a really good reason. In a totally surprising turn of events, Jordin Sparks is married and pregnant with her first child. Wait, what? How did this even happen?!
On Monday, People announced the good news, confirming that Jordin and boyfriend Dana Isaiah, a model, did in fact secretly tie the knot back in July. And as if that wasn't enough of a shocker to drop on fans, Jordin also confirmed that they're expecting their first baby together in late 2018. If it seems like a total whirlwind to you, that's because it is — Jordin and Dana only met this past February, when their parents introduced them. It was love at first text message, and they met for the first time on Easter. Jordin said she could instantly tell that this man would be her husband someday.
“When I’m with him, I feel comfort and safety and calm and peace, and those aren’t things that I normally felt,” she told People. “So it was a little wake-up call for me.”
After that, things just fell into place. Jordin and Dana eloped in Hawaii on July 16, and the rest is now history in the making. They found out they were pregnant just a month later, and although their baby news came totally unexpected, it sounds like they're both incredibly excited for their future together, and, of course, to meet their baby. Jordan told the magazine that she's “the most content I've ever been in my life,” so it seems these major life changes are for the best.
Jordin told People:
“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 . . . I’d gone through a crazy time last year, so I was just like ‘You know what? I’m good. I’m going to stay single. I’m just not going to look. It’s amazing that that phrase ‘When you don’t look for it, that’s when it comes.' He just showed up at my door. I’m extremely grateful because life is nuts. This is the best part so far because I have him and I have this little one and I have a new family.”
It feels like just yesterday when we were mourning Jordin's breakup with longtime boyfriend Jason DeRulo, so it's exciting to hear that all of her dreams of starting a family are coming true. Congrats to Jordin and Dana! We can't wait to see photos of their little one when he or she finally arrives next year. How gorgeous is that baby going to be?!
