Jordin Sparks’ bounce back game is strong! After a string of unfortunate break-ups, the American Idol winner has finally found the one, aspiring model Dana Isaiah, and bonus: they’re having a baby!
In recent years Spark had taken a few hits in the love department thanks to Jason Derulo and Sage The Gemini. Those two relationships, that ended in bitter break-ups, had Jordin swearing off love. “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,’” the “No Air” singer told People. “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.”
And that’s exactly what happened. After a series of events that started with Sparks meeting Dana’s family first, she finally met her soon-to-be man when he came out to LA for a meeting with a modeling agency.
“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,’” says Sparks, who discussed early on with Isaiah about not moving in together until they were husband and wife. “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.”
Soon after, they were a full on couple. The two eloped on July 16th during a vacation in Hawaii with friends. Then, the newlyweds dicovered they were expecting their first child just a few weeks later. “We’re both really excited,” says Sparks about finally opening up about their happy news. “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.”
Sparks is due in late Spring 2018. Congrats to the happy couple!
