American Idol winner Jordin Sparks has made two surprising announcements – she is married and also pregnant.
The No Air singer has been secretly married to 25-year-old Dana Ishia for the last four months.
The loved-up pair married in Hawaii in July, according to OK! Magazine.
And that’s not all – the 28-year-old told People.com that she is also expecting her first baby with her new husband, next spring.
‘We’re both really excited,’ says Jordin about finally opening up about their happy news to People.com
‘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.’
However, the mum-to-be admitted to the publication that when she discovered she was pregnant it was a big shock for both of them.
She said: ‘It was like such a shock for both of us, and then I started bawling in the closet.’

The American Idol winner, who broke up with singer Jason Derulo in 2014, admitted: ‘They were shocked, scared and terrified tears, I’m going to be completely honest. I was just like, “Oh my gosh!”‘
The performer went on to add that she and her new husband are happier than ever and can’t wait to meet their first child, saying: ‘We’re really proud to be married to each other and to be celebrating this.’
Talking about how she met her husband of four months, Jordin said: ‘He came here to Los Angeles and we spent time together, we spent a couple of days together and it was something I’d never felt before.

‘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. 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.’
Congratulations to the lovely couple!
