Jordin Sparks Has Some Big News

i was shocked when i heard this news.
i won’t even lie to you.
so everyone knows jordin sparks was a virgin,
right?
or was she saving herself for marriage?
i remember she wore a purity ring and everything.
well jordin has a surprise for us.
that purity ring came off with her latest,
dana isaiah,
and well…

To call 2017 a life-changing year for Jordin Sparks would be an understatement.

The American Idol alum, 27, secretly wed her boyfriend Dana Isaiah, 25, in mid-July — and the newlyweds are expecting their first child together late next spring, they confirm to PEOPLE exclusively.

“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 had met her new husband’s family when she traveled to Houston during Super Bowl weekend this past February with her charity campaign I’m M.A.D., Are You?

When Isaiah — who is pursuing a modeling career — told his mom weeks later he was eyeing a move out West, Sparks’ mom and Isaiah’s mom put their children on a group text chat. “My mom was trying to get [Jordin] to talk me out of moving to L.A. because she’s experienced the industry out here,” he says. “It wasn’t like, ‘We want you guys to date.’”

But the pair bonded quickly over their tight-knit families and shared Christian faith. After talking nearly every day for a month, Isaiah flew out to Los Angeles for an agency meeting and met his future wife for the first time over 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, 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.”

On July 16, the couple eloped while on vacation in Hawaii with a small group of friends. “It just more solidifies the whole team sentiment of a relationship,” says Sparks. “You know you’re still individuals, but at the same time everything is about ‘we’ and ‘us’ as opposed to ‘you’ and ‘I.’”

After surprising their loved ones with their wedding news, the couple received the biggest shock of their lives when Sparks discovered she was pregnant in late August.

“It was about five days after he moved to L.A. He comes in and I go ‘I’m pregnant.’ It was such a shock for both of us. I turned around and started bawling in the closet,” says Sparks. “It’s been really crazy because everything changes. Everything has been so crazy and fast-forward. 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!”

so…
how they met was rather interesting.
they met via parents in feb,
met for the first time in march,
married in july,
pregnant in august.
hmm.
doesn’t this sound a little…
rushed?
those must have been some intense skype conversations.
this all reads like…

“I don’t want to be no baby mama.
Get a ring on this finger and step on it!”

either way,
i wish them both well and a healthy cub ahead.

lowkey: i remember she use to sing.
does she still do that?

    She took that Ring off when she was dating Jason Derulo. She’s did a whole interview about it. When I first heard she was married and pregnant i automatically thought she was trying to pull a Brandy. But they seem genuinely happy. Wish them the best.

    I don’t understand the rush.Of course everything is great they only dated a few months before they got married.I hope the pregnancy and him being unemployed aka aspiring model doesn’t put stress on the marriage.
    I know her last two boyfriends Jason and that rapper Sage cheated on her so I hope this works out.Congrats and Good Luck.

    I’ve met them at a gym and they’re both friendly and nice as hell lol

    If you ask couples that have been together forever it really wasn’t as complicated as we often make relationships out to be these days.

    Men and women know fairly quickly if they’re interacting with someone they can see themselves with long term. Especially if you’re looking deeper than sex or physical attraction.

    Do you ever look at Str8 couples and think to yourself… Adam and Eve or how many Adams before Eve finally finds the right man made in the image of God? Ya know her “soul mate”.

    Post like this make me wonder about people’s pursuit with having a family and happiness. Or having something that shares their DNA running around to continue their legacy.

    I had sex with a guy two years ago. I used to have a promise ring before then but I lost it. I made a promise to myself to never fall under the words of an ill fated love. I lost that ring and ended up getting fucked like Halle Berry in Monsters Ball and failed. Shit happens, I know. 😓

    Some time after that, I brought another promise ring, which I wear today and I havent had sex with anyone since. I’ve been abstinent/grey-ace(tho I often identify as a full fledged DEMISEXUAL) for a full 2 years going on three and I keep wondering if I’ll get teased with a cookie cutter romance like this in the future.(without the pregnancy of course.) I still faun over hot guys tho. I can look…okay..😐🍆🍑🍌🍫

    So they met via parents and now they are talking for what? several months and out comes the baby sometime next year? They could genuinely be in love but I strongly believe that you need to know way more about a person much longer and now a child is in this. It could work out, it couldn’t but I guess that’s the risk folks take on a hopeful romance or soulmate session.

    (P.S.) I strongly don’t believe in finding a soul mate. I think ppl Just share common interests with you and you are attracted to them. Ill take vibrations before I believe in the soul mate lore.

    I think the term soul mate is made up filler to flatter the idea of people dying happy with someone because no one wants to die alone.

    It’s kind of like Heaven and Hell. Humans fear that when they die, that will be it and who knows, it may very well be…You just die and that is all. You will go nowhere but underground.

    All that’s left of you are memories of what once was but what if you never had anyone in your corner? No one to remember you or a long term love that would keep your memory alive. Ya know, kind of like how we keep already dead people of the past alive through books, pictures, etc.

    When mankind is presented with the unknown, they like to fill in the blanks because it makes them feel complete. When people are aching for love and companionship, they like to fill in the blanks, sometimes through awkward means, in order to feel complete. This could be through ho’in or being a hopeless romantic. It all just depends.

    They say enjoy this life while you can, you can only live it once and then you die. Get married, find the love of your life and die happy. I wonder why such urgency when something else much greater is supposed to be in store for you after death?

      I’m pretty much in the same boat, except I find myself thinking about my mortality more.

      Ideally, I want the traditional family unit with the kids to carry on my name and my likeness.

      Casual, freaky sex and men in general aren’t that appealing to me anymore and really don’t offer anything more than surface satisfaction.

      I think the idea of a soulmate is true for some, but not at all. I see it in couples that have been together forever and still seem genuinely happy around each other. A lot of people are forcing it to not be alone though.

    He’s “pursuing a modeling career?”-eye roll. Thats just code for “looking for a come up. Met, married and pregnant all in the same year? Yeah ok. I like Jordin but this aint how u do it girl. I wish famous women would understand that THEY CANNOT DATE/MARRY DOWN. He has to be equally as famous or wealthy as you. Couple that with the fact that he obviously doesnt have a real job and its a recipe for disaster. He’ll be trying to “Kendu Isaacs” her in a few years when the novelty wears off…

    I can’t help but side eye anyone that would have something negative to say about this.

    Meanwhile a lot of y’all can count on one hand how many dates you’ve been on and haven’t seen no parts of a relationship 🤷🏾‍♂️😂

    Does no one believe in birth control. If you have sex you get prenant. There is no need for an oops baby if people were smart.
    And it seems she doesn’t sing anymore. Shes an aspriring singer these days. They can both aspire together.
