At 17 years old Jordin Sparks won American Idol and now 10 years later, the talented singer and husband, model Dana Isaiah are expecting their first child. The couple secretly eloped in July and have confirmed their family will grow by one this upcoming spring to People Magazine.
“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” says Sparks.
The two newlyweds came together by chance. Sparks met Isaiah’s family during an event Super Bowl weekend through her charity I’m M.A.D. Are You? and the couple were connected through their mothers who added the two to a groupchat. Although the intentions were for Sparks to give Isaiah advice on moving to Los Angeles the two fell in in love. After weeks on daily conversation, Jordin Sparks finally met Dana Isaiah for the first time, Easter weekend.
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 to People Magazine.
Sparks and Isaiah bonded over similarities such as their close knit families and religious beliefs and while vacationing in Hawaii tied the knot in the presence of close friends. Shortly after their ceremony, the two learned they were expecting late August.
Both are excited about adding a member to their new family. After two very public relationships and break-ups, Sparks finally finds peace as she begins a family of her own.
“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.”
