Jordin Sparks Is Expecting Her First Child With Husband Dana Isaiah

The former American Idol contestant jumped the broom with her beau on July 16, 2017, and announced they're expecting their first child next spring.

A double dose of congrats is in order for pop star Jordin Sparks and her husband Dana Isaiah. According to People, the former American Idol winner not only announced that she jumped the broom with her beau on July 16, 2017, but they're expecting their first child next spring.

Sparks told the celebrity news publication that once she met her husband, she knew they were soulmates. "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," she said.

A month after they eloped in front of an intimate group of friends, the couple found out they were pregnant and immediately entered a new world. "It's been really crazy because everything changes," the "No Air" singer said. "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!"

Sparks initially met Isaiah's family when her campaign, I'm M.A.D., Are You?, launched an event in Houston during this year's Super Bowl weekend. Later on, Isaiah - who's a model - traveled to Los Angeles for a business meeting around Easter and immediately hit it off with Sparks.

In the spring of 2016, Sparks and her ex-boyfriend, rapper Sage the Gemini, split after 10 months of dating. The 27-year-old artist said after that moment, she decided to take a break from the dating scene.

"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,'" she said. "It's amazing that that phrase, 'When you don't look for it, that's when it comes'... he just showed up at my door."

After a three-year album hiatus, Ty Dolla $ign released his latest studio effort, Featuring Ty Dolla $ign, on Friday (Oct. 23).

The 25-track album features appearances from Nicki Minaj, Kid Cudi, FKA Twigs, Roddy Ricch, Jhené Aiko, Kehlani, 6lack, Young Thug, Music Soulchild, Skrillex, Quavo, Anderson Paak, Post Malone, Kanye West, and more.

Powered by previously released singles, “Ego Death,” Expensive” and By Yourself,” the new album flexes a different music muscle for the Grammy-nominated recording artists who steered clear of  making club records.

“I was intentionally trying to not make club songs [talking about] hoes and *itches and all the sh*t I used to talk about,” Ty told Vulture in a recent interview. “I was trying to, like, talk about my life, and what it is now, and really do something different with it. I got a daughter going to high school this year, and she’s paying attention, and all her friends are paying attention, so I can’t talk as crazy or do the crazy sh*t that I used to do.”

Jay Z Launches His Own Cannabis Brand

Jay Z is venturing into the world of cannabis. The  mogul officially announced the launch of his new cannabis brand, Monogram, on Friday (Oct. 23) marking his first product collaboration since becoming chief brand strategists of the Northern California-based dispensary, Caliva, last year.

“Monogram seeks to redefine what cannabis means to consumers today,” the company said in a press release. As many marijuana storefronts have implemented new rules amid the global pandemic, Monogram is also planing to launch an e-commerce sales option, “In an effort to provide a more tailored customer experience.”

Caliva and Hov opened their first Southern California storefront last year. Besides providing quality products, Hov aims to use his position at Caliva to help the formerly incarcerated (many of whom are not reaping the benefits of marijuana legalization) through advocacy, job training, and employee and workforce development.

According to the company website, Monogram uses “expert growers” to ensure that each marijuana flowers receives the “respect it deserves” in every stage of the growth process. Additionally, Monogram flowers are grown in small batches so that every plant gets “personalized attention.”
