When we first saw Jordin Sparks in 2007, it was impossible to recognise her. This year, American Idol season 6’s new baby-faced victors were all about their pipes and personalities. Sparks has grown up much since her early days as a child actor. That isn’t surprising, considering how much of a roller coaster ride Sparks has been on in the past few years.
Sparks was up in Phoenix, Arizona, where he was surrounded by the best athletes in the world. Her father, Phillippi Sparks, was a former NFL player (via TV Guide). She attributes her tenacity to her father, adding, “Every member of my family has an athletic background and a “player’s mindset,” thanks to my father, who played football in his youth.
It has a strict structure. You’ve got a goal in mind, and you’re going to work towards it. Our goal is to get there by practising and doing whatever it takes, therefore I have always kept that in mind ” (via InStyle).
Jordin Sparks went from mrom music to fitness
Sparks developed an early aptitude for and enthusiasm for performing on stage. In 2002, she competed in America’s Most Talented Kids and was named the Coca-Cola Rising Star at the Arizona State Fair, before she could legally get her driver’s licence (via TV Guide).
After winning the American Idol crown, Sparks proved that she could have a long and successful career. Astonishingly, she ruled the pop charts in 2007. When her first two albums debuted on the Billboard charts, her songs, “No Air,” “One Step at a Time,” and “Tattoo” were all big singles (via Bustle).
After making her name in the music industry, it looks like Sparks has decided to redirect her attention to her health. “‘I should be in the prime of my life right now,’ I thought because I had grown so unwell,” she says. I’m not supposed to be feeling this way.
‘I need to put my health first,’ I tell myself ” (via Today). It took Sparks just 18 months to lose an amazing 50 pounds. She said this in an interview with Redbook “Finding workouts that I was interested in was crucial. The only way to stay on track is if you commit to it.”
Sparks devotes her time and energy to her family’s well-being.
Sparks is not only pushing her own fitness goals, but she is also utilising her platform to advocate for causes that have a personal meaning to her. Bryanna, Bryanna’s step-sister, unfortunately, succumbed to sickle cell anaemia and died at the age of 16.
It was “her dream” to “raise awareness and to discover a cure,” Sparks said. “As a result, many people are unaware of how widespread sickle cell disease is, and how many people are affected. A hundred thousand people are killed each year, so why don’t we talk about it more?” “People” has the full story.
Sparks’ new role as a mother has presumably made her stronger than ever after she’s had to deal with loss and embrace a better lifestyle. When Sparks gave birth to her first child, Dana Isiah Thomas Jr., she couldn’t help but shout, “He’s here!” “I’ve never felt anything quite like this before. I don’t know how to put that into words. I’m unable to. Unbelievable, and I know that I have a lot more ideas “.
When Sparks stopped looking for love, she found it
It’s possible that Jordin Sparks’ newfound radiance is also connected to her search for “the one.” Previously, she had a high-profile romance with Jason Derulo, a fellow musician. In an interview, Derulo said, “It’s been a rough couple of months.” “When we got married, there were a lot of stresses. Throughout our relationship, there was a lot of fighting and things like that “According to E!
There was a palpable sense of fatigue on Sparks’ face as well. She states that once she ended the relationship, she felt better “I was simply like, ‘You know that?’ because last year was a crazy period for me. I’m fine, thank you. I’m not looking to meet someone new. I’m not going to give it a second thought.” E! News reports that (as of this writing).
It didn’t take long for Sparks to come to terms with being a single person. Since then, she and fitness model Dana Thomas have been married. When she talks about her husband, it’s clear that she has a deep love for him “Please accept my heartfelt gratitude for being the best man I know.
Thank you so much for providing me with so much happiness and joy. Thank you for making me a mother. For always being there to lift me up and make me a better person. Because you care for me and DJ “In accordance with E! News, this is the case. Love is one of our favourite things! As for Sparks, I adore what it has done for him!
