Surprise! ‘American Idol’ Alum Jordin Sparks Is Married and Pregnant
The American Idol winner has revealed she secretly married her boyfriend, Dana Isaiah.
Oh yeah, and there's more — she's pregnant, too!
The 27-year-old has been sort of MIA in recent years, though had a very public three-year relationship (and subsequent breakup) with fellow R&B star Jason Derulo.
After their split, Jordin found love with rapper Sage the Gemini, but we guess that relationship didn't compare to the one she's in now, either...
The American Idol alum, who won Season 6 at the age of 17, has settled down with aspiring model Dana Isaiah, they tell People.
And how'd they meet you ask? Via their families!
“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 tells the mag of when his parents first met Jordin on Super Bowl weekend 2017.
“It wasn’t like, ‘We want you guys to date.'”
The future Mr. and Mrs. ended up meeting for the first time in person in April, and eloped in Hawaii on July 16 in front of a small group of family and friends.
By mid-August, the couple had found out Jordin was pregnant. Talk about moving fast!
“It’s been really crazy because everything changes,” she says.
“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!”
Their first child, whose sex hasn't yet been revealed, is due in the spring of 2018, about one year after they first met.
“I’m extremely grateful because life is nuts," the mom to be adds.
"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.”
They're now living together in Los Angeles — despite his parents' wishes, we guess — and awaiting their little one's arrival.
“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,'” the singer says, referencing her split.
“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.”
