Singer Jordin Sparks has secretly gotten married and is expecting her first child late next spring.
The 27-year-old "American Idol winner" eloped with 25-year-old Dana Isaiah while vacationing in Hawaii back in July.
Jordin says, “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.”
She met her new husband’s family when she traveled to Houston during Super Bowl weekend this past February. They bonded quickly over their tight-knit families and shared Christian faith. After talking nearly every day for a month, Isaiah flew out to Los Angeles for an agency meeting and met his future wife for the first time over Easter weekend.
Jordin says she knew right away that Dana was the one. She says, “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 surprising their loved ones with their wedding news, the couple discovered that Jordin was pregnant in late August. She said, “It’s been really crazy because everything changes. Everything has been so crazy and fast-forward. 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!”
