Jordin Sparks has been secretly married since July and is expecting her first child!
The former American Idol winner revealed to People that she quietly tied the knot with model Dana Isaiah. What’s more is that the couple will be parents in the Spring.
“He’s been like, ‘I want to shout it from the mountain tops!'” Sparks said of her new husband. “We’re really proud to be married to each other and to be celebrating this.”
The two of them crossed paths after Sparks met Isaiah’s family in Houston, and their families put them in a group chat together. But even though Sparks had just “gone through a crazy time” the previous year and wasn’t looking for love, the pair ended up bonding over their faith and families.
“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,’” Sparks recalled.
Then, on July 16, they eloped in Hawaii with a small group of friends.
They hadn’t been married long at all when, in August, Sparks also found out that she was pregnant.
“It’s been really crazy because everything changes,” Sparks told People. “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!”
“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.”
