Yes, you read that right, Jordin Sparks is married and expecting a baby!
The American Idol winner secretly got married to her then boyfriend Dana Isiah in July and they are expecting their first child together next year, according to People.
The couple met when Isaiah decided he wanted to move to LA to pursue a modelling career and his mom and Jordin’s mom put them in a group chat so Jordin could talk him out of it. The couple clicked immediately.
Speaking exclusively to People, Jordin said:
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 singer said after her “crazy” 2017, she decided to remain single. She wasn’t looking for a relationship before she met Dana, she said.
“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 [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,” she said.
The couple eloped while on vacation in Hawaii on the 16th of July.
