It's a boy!
The former American Idol star and husband, model Dana Isaiah, announced last week that they secretly wed in July and are expecting their first child together. On Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, Sparks revealed her baby's gender on her Instagram page—and it's a boy!
"IT'S A BOY!!! We have so much to be thankful for and this is definitely at the top of the list! @_danaisaiah's gonna have a little mini me running around! We can't wait to meet him. We love you lil man!" the singer wrote in the caption of a photo of her and her husband holding blue streamer paper.
Sparks and Isaiah tied the knot on July 16, while on vacation in Hawaii with a few friends. "We're both really excited. He's been like, 'I want to shout it from the mountain tops!'" Sparks said. "We're really proud to be married to each other and to be celebrating this." She continued, "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.'"
And they're about to add to the 'us.' Sparks is due in early spring 2018.
"It's been really crazy because everything changes," Sparks said of her pregnancy. "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!
"I'm extremely grateful because life is nuts. This is the best part so far because I have [Dana] and I have this little one and I have a new family. I'm the most content I've ever been in my life," she added.
