Jordin Sparks and her new husband Dana Isaiah have a baby boy on the way.
The pregnant singer and sixth-season American Idol winner took to Instagram to share the big news with fans.
Sparks posted a photo of Isaiah and herself on November 23 in which they were sitting outside and grabbing onto strips of blue confetti.
"IT'S A BOY!!! We have so much to be thankful for and this is definitely at the top of the list!" Sparks, 27, captioned the picture on Thanksgiving day. "@_danaisaiah's gonna have a little mini me running around! We can't wait to meet him. We love you lil man!"
In the photo, Sparks was wearing a hot pink T-shirt and jeans while cradling her baby bump with one hand, and Isaiah was sporting a baby blue shirt with dark pants. The couple was clearly celebrating their own little gender-reveal party.
Isaiah also announced Thursday on Instagram he's going to welcome a son into his life.
"How beautiful it is to remain silent when someone expects you to be enraged. Son, you will be welcomed into this world with nothing but love from the people that matter," Isaiah wrote alongside a picture of the happy couple in response to some critics who commented on Sparks' initial post.
"There will always be haters get used to it now. Just know your parents and family got you! Always be unapologetically YOU! #kanyeshrug."
Sparks shocked the world when she revealed on November 14 that not only is she pregnant with her first child, but she also secretly married Isaiah in mid-July following a whirlwind romance.
Although Sparks and Isaiah kept their relationship pretty hush-hush since meeting in Los Angeles in mid-April, the couple have been affectionate on social media.
On September 20, for instance, Isaiah shared a photo of Sparks and wrote alongside it, "I thank God for you every mother loving day!"
He continued, "Every single day with you gets better. Thanks for putting up with my weird crazy behind. I'm a work in progress after being single for long but you make this commitment thing I was so scared of EASY! Loving you is fun #wcw #wce."
Sparks told People that she discovered she was pregnant in late August and the baby is due in late Spring 2018.
Prior to marrying Isaiah, Sparks split from rapper Sage The Gemini in 2016 after 10 months of dating and from singer Jason DeRulo in 2014 after three years together.
