Talk about a bombshell. I thought Beyoncé’s last pregnancy announcement was wild — well, this news might take the cake!
Congratulations are in order for American Idol winner Jordin Sparks (27) and Danah Isaiah (25). The couple recently confirmed to PEOPLE they wed in mid-July and are expecting their first child together!

“We’re both really excited,” says Sparks. “He’s [Dana Isaiah] 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.”
According to PEOPLE, “Sparks met her new husband’s family when she traveled to Houston… this past February with her charity campaign I’m M.A.D., Are You?” Their mother’s ended up putting them in a group chat with one another, but according to Isaiah, “It wasn’t like, ‘We want you guys to date.'”
It wasn’t until this past Easter that the pair met, but Sparks knew immediately that Isaiah was the one. “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.
And, that’s exactly what happened. The couple eloped in Hawaii on July 16 in front of a small group of friends. But, their fun and spontaneous love story does not end there. In late August, Sparks discovered she was pregnant!
Prior to this, Sparks, unfortunately, went through two high-profile break-ups — with Jason Derulo and Sage the Gemini — and decided it was time to take a step back. “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.'”
Now, Sparks tells PEOPLE she is the most content she’s ever been in her life! What’s Trending wishes you nothing but the best, Jordin. Congratulations!
