So Jordin Sparks Eloped And Is Pregnant With Her First Child
In we had absolutely no idea news, Jordin Sparks is a married woman and expecting her first child with husband Dana Isaiah.
It was just this past July that we told you about the 27-year-old former American Idol ‘s new boo, but apparently when they went public with their relationship, Jordin wasn’t revealing her boyfriend, she was showing the world her husband. In an interview with People.com, the singer revealed she and Dana, 25, actually eloped July 16 and are expecting their first child next spring.
“We’re both really excited,” Jordin told People. “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.”
The couple found out they were pregnant in late August, just one month after they eloped in front of a few friends while on vacation in Hawaii. And though they’re excited to become parents next year, Jordin admitted she was overwhelmed when she first found out they were expecting.
“It was like such a shock for both of us, and then I turned around and started bawling in the closet,” Jordin said of the moment the pregnancy test read positive. And those weren’t happy tears either. “Nope, they were shocked, scared and terrified tears! I’m going to be completely honest, I was just like, ‘Oh my gosh!'”
Jordin actually met her new husband’s family during Super Bowl Weekend in Houston this year before she even met him. But when Dana told his mom he was planning to move to the west coast to pursue his modeling career, their mothers connected them in a text chat so Jordin could help Dana navigate the industry. It didn’t take long for the two to bond romantically, however.
“I’d never spent time together with someone of the opposite sex that I’d immediately felt 100 percent comfortable with – it was a little wake up call for me,” Jordin admitted. “I was like, ‘I think this is how I’m supposed to feel… no, I know this is how I’m supposed to feel.” After talking nearly every day for a month, Dana flew to LA and met his future wife for the first time Easter weekend and it was at that point Jordin knew he was the one.
“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,’” Jordin said, adding that she and Dana talked early on about not moving in together until they were husband and wife. “When I’m with him, I feel comfort and safety and calm and peace, and those aren’t things that I normally felt.”
But now, as a newlywed and newly expectant mother, Jordin said has a new normal: “I’m the most content I’ve ever been in all areas.”
