Jordin Sparks, winner of the sixth season of “American Idol,” revealed that she not only secretly got married, but is also pregnant. She and husband Dana Isaiah, tied the knot over the summer. She learned she was pregnant one month later.
The 27-year-old singer wed her 25-year-old after dating for less than a year.
“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.’ 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,” she told People.
“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,” she added.
Jordin and Dana eloped in July to exchange wedding vows in front of an intimate selection of friends and family because they wanted to be the centre of attention.
“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,'” she said.
Her pregnancy came as a huge shock, she said.
“It’s been really crazy because everything changes. 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,” she explained.
But the whirlwind few months has left Jordin feeling the “most content” she has ever felt in her life.
She said: “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.”
Sparks dated Jason Derulo for three years. Theyk ended their relationship in 2014.
