Surprise! Jordin Sparks is married and with child! PEOPLE has the details of the singer’s new family.
“We’re both really excited,” Jordin tells media. “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.”
Jordin secretly wed her boyfriend, Dana Isaiah, in July. The couple is expecting their newest family addition to arrive next spring.
Isaiah is presently pursuing a career in the fashion industry as a model. The 25-year-old tells PEOPLE that his mother was more concerned about him moving to Hollywood than marrying his girlfriend of a few months. “My mom was trying to get [Jordin] to talk me out of moving to L.A. because she’s experienced the industry out here,” Dana explains. “It wasn’t like, ‘We want you guys to date,'” he shares.
There’s a notion that a person know when they have found “the one” the moment that they meet the other individual. Such theory may be applicable to Jordin and Dana’s case.
“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 says of her dating experience with Dana. “When I’m with him, I feel comfort and safety and calm and peace, and those aren’t things that I normally felt.”
Jordin and Dana followed their hearts, which ultimately led them to beautiful Hawaii where they exchanged nuptials in front of a few family members and friends this past July. The couple learned of their expectancy in August.
“It’s been really crazy because everything changes,” Jordin tells media. “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!”
