Jordin Sparks Ties The Knot Secretly; Announces Pregnancy
Today has been a day of big reveals for singer Jordin Sparks.
The American Idol winner has announced that she is expecting her first child with partner Dana Isaiah.
And while many believed the latter to be her boyfriend, she confirmed that they have indeed tied the knot.
Speaking to PEOPLE, Sparks revealed that she and her aspiring model beau (who she’d been dating for a year) eloped while on vacation in Hawaii with a small group of friends in July. She said of their nuptials…
“It just more solidifies the whole team sentiment of a relationship. You know you’re still individuals, but at the same time everything is about ‘we’ and ‘us’ as opposed to ‘you’ and ‘I.’”
And on their incoming bundle of joy:
“We’re both really excited. [Dana’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 also says she also knew that Isaiah (who, like her, is a devout Christian) was her happily ever after:
“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.’ 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.”
