Jordin Sparks and Dana Isaiah announce their marriage and the much-anticipated arrival of their first child late next spring in mid-November. Now, the singer is showing off her growing belly in the most snuggliest Christmas Instagram photo ever. She took a selfie while presumably relaxing at home sporting a Santa shirt with the words, ‘Baby’s First Christmas…on the inside’ across the front. She is smiling and looking totally in love with her life and everything she’s got going on right now. Jordin captioned the shot, “Merry Christmas to you & yours. Be kind to each other. ♥️.”

While Dana didn’t make the pic, Jordin posted a few more shots in recent days of the couple celebrating her birthday and the holidays together. Jordin and Dana started dating earlier this year. The couple reportedly secretly got married in July and with the baby on the way, it makes everything that much more exciting. The American Idol alum told People magazine, “We’re both really excited. 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.”

But, it wasn’t an easy ride for these two. Dana’s mom actually didn’t want him to move to California to pursue his modeling career and even tried to get Jordin to stop him. He said, “My mom was trying to get [Jordin] to talk me out of moving to L.A. because she’s experienced the industry out here. It wasn’t like, ‘We want you guys to date.'” However, they couldn’t stay away from each other and didn’t want to.

Jordin said, “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.” Apparently, the pair discussed not moving in together until they were officially married. Even though they gave little details about why that was the decision, it makes sense. Jordin was in a super high profile relationship with Jason Derulo and went through a public breakup. Maybe this time she wanted to make sure it was the real deal before taking the next step and living together.

Regardless, Dana and Jordin are completely head over heels now, and fans can’t wait to follow Jordin along during her pregnancy. She hasn’t announced whether she’s having a boy or a girl, but we have a feeling they will both make amazing parents. The pair has so much fun together – it’s apparent on social media – and now that there is going to be three of them, the fun has only just begun.
