Who Is Dana Isaiah, Jordin Sparks’ New Husband & Father Of Child?
Jordin Sparks reveals that she wed boyfriend Dana Isaiah back in July in a secret Hawaiian wedding.
WHO IS DANA ISAIAH?
Sparks, 27, confirmed the marriage to Isaiah, 25, to People. “We’re both really excited,” the American Idol winner shared. “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.”
Before Sparks had even met Isaiah, the singer met her new hubby’s family last February when she made the trek to Houston for the Super Bowl as part of her charity campaign I’m M.A.D., Are You? Isaiah is an aspiring model, and when he told his mom he wanted to move to L.A. to pursue his career, she told Sparks to convince him not to go. “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 shared. “It wasn’t like, ‘We want you guys to date.'”
The couple met 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,'” said Sparks. “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.”

The couple eloped in Hawaii on July 16 with a small group of friends. “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,'” Sparks said.
In addition to their wedding news, the couple had one other bombshell to drop – they’re pregnant. “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,” the singer revealed. She found out she was pregnant in August. “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!”
