How Jordin Sparks' Tropical Vacation Turned Into an Impromptu Elopement (In the Ocean, Wearing a Flamingo Floatie)

The spirit moved her in Hawaii.

American Idol alum — and former promise-ring wearer — Jordin Sparks is married… and pregnant! It turns out she wed aspiring model bf Dana Isaiah in July, and the pair found out they were expecting shortly after.

Surprised to hear so much news all at once from Jason Derulo’s ex? Well, she was surprised too when her tropical vacation turned into an on-the-spot wedding.

Turns out the couple was vacationing in Hawaii with their best friends when, days into their trip, they decided to elope, according to People

“We hadn’t had a set plan or anything. We were like, ‘If it happens, it happens. If it doesn’t, that’s okay too,” Jordan told People.

The couple was walking up and down the beach as a paparazzo captured their every move. “I looked at Dana and I go, ‘Smile, you’re on camera,’” she said. And that’s when the moment hit her: She was ready to be married. Right then and there.

“We all get in the water and we’re having a good time and I just was like ‘Morgan,'” she says about her best friend. “She had gotten ordained before the trip. I was like, ‘Morgan, why don’t you do it right now?’ And she was like ‘Okay!'”

Dana called for his friends to come along, too… and they tied the knot, just like that.

“We did it and then she was like ‘Kiss me!'” he said.

It turns out that very strategically placed paparazzo had just captured their impromptu wedding — and the pics soon hit the web. So what was the bride wearing in those snaps as she said her “I Dos” in the ocean? A bikini… and a flamingo floatie.

“It was so much fun and we had such a great time,” she told People. “I do big events all the time, so to be able to have this moment, it was really special to me in that way. Everybody’s love story is different.”

And only some — the lucky ones, you might say — involve floaties
