The 27-year-old American Idol winner Jordin Sparks — who secretly wed her 25-year-old lover Dana Isaiah in the mid-July — is now expecting her first child with her husband. The newlywed couple is excited to welcome their very first child.
The couple is all set to welcome their first baby in the next springs, the couple confirmed the news to PEOPLE.
Sparks told the publication, “We’re both really excited.” She said, “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.”
During her charity campaign named I’m M.A.D., Are You? she met the family of her new husband in Houston in February.
At the time when Isaiah pursuing his modeling career, he told his mother weeks later that he was thinking to move out West after which couple’s mothers put them in a group chat.
Isaiah said, “My mom was trying to get (Jordin) to talk me out of moving to L.A. because she’s experienced the industry out here.” He added, “It wasn’t like, ‘We want you guys to date.’”
As their families were already tight-knitted and they shared Christian faith, Isaiah and Sparks bonded quickly, they started talking to each other and about a month after continuously talking, Isaiah finally flew out to the City of Angels, Los Angeles due to an agency meeting where he met his future wife for the very first time during the Easter weekend.
Sparks 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.’” She added, “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.”
“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,’” Sparks said. “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,” the singer added.
