Jordin Sparks reveals secret marriage and pregnancy

Just a few days after Tia Mowry debuted her latest baby bump on Instagram, American Idol victor Jordin Sparks has announced not only her own pregnancy, but dropped the news that she's been secretly married for 4 months!

The 27-year-old gleefully shared with People that she tied the knot with her 25-year-old bae, aspiring model Dana Isaiah, while on vacation in Hawaii with a small group of friends in July.

Sparks told the magazine that both she and Isaiah are over the moon about being husband and wife and are equally ecstatic to become parents soon. "We're really proud to be married to each other and to be celebrating this", she declares.

But after talking nearly every day for about a month, the two grew feelings for each other.

"This is the best part [of life] so far because I have [Dana] and I have this little one and I have a new family", she added. It wasn't like, "We want you guys to date.'" Sure, Dana, whatever you say.

Sparks said the couple eloped on July 16th, and just a month later, she discovered she was expecting. Isaiah flew to L.A.in April and met Sparks for the first time.

"It's been really insane because everything changes", Sparks said of her pregnancy.

"I'd gone through a insane time past year, so I was just like 'You know what?"

However, the pregnancy news came as a massive surprise to the couple, with Jordin admitting of the moment she found out was "terrifying". "'I'm just not going to look, ' It's incredible that that phrase 'When you don't look for it, that's when it comes" ... he just showed up at my door". "When I'm with him, I feel comfort and safety and calm and peace and those aren't things that I normally felt".

"I'm extremely grateful because life is nuts", Sparks told People.

And while Jordin said it took Dana a "little longer" to realise she was his "one", the hunk said he now wants to "shout it from the rooftops".

But now, as a newlywed and newly expectant mother, Jordin said has a new normal: "I'm the most content I've ever been in all areas".
