Jordin Sparks Shocker: She’s Married AND Pregnant!
Fans were stunned to wake up this morning and learn that Jordin Sparks is not only married but she’s also pregnant! The former American Idol champ has decided it’s time to share all of this big (great!) news with the world!
The 27-year-old secretly married her boyfriend, Dana Isaiah, back in mid-July and, before you call this a shotgun wedding, she discovered she was pregnant in late August. Wow! What a huge turn of events!
Speaking exclusive with People, the singer said, “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.”
Sparks and Isaiah, an aspiring model, share their Christian faith and strong connection to their families which helped them bond as they got to know each other earlier this year. The pair met for the first time over Easter weekend.
“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,’” says Sparks. “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.”
After opting against moving in together before marriage, the couple eloped while on vacation in Hawaii while they were surrounded by a small group of friends. The songstress explained, “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.’”
The wedding news was a big surprise to their families but the real shocker was a few weeks down the road but it sounds like everyone is taking the baby news in stride. “It’s been really crazy because everything changes,” said Sparks. “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!”
After struggling with to find the right partner, Sparks has a great attitude about her life now:” “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.”
