Sparks’ mother and Isaiah’s mother suggested the two text and talk so that Isaiah could get a better idea of what to expect if he moved to Los Angeles, where he was wanting to pursue his modeling career.
"My mom was trying to get her to talk me out of moving to L.A. because she's experienced the industry out here," Isaiah told People. "It wasn't like, 'We want you guys to date.'"
But after talking almost every day for about a month, the two grew feelings for each other. Isaiah flew to L.A. in April and met Sparks for the first time. The two hit it off.
“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,’” Sparks said. “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.”
The couple wed in a private ceremony in Hawaii on July 16. Their bundle of joy is expected to arrive in the spring.
"I'm extremely grateful because life is nuts," Sparks told People. "This is the best part so far because I have (Dana) and I have this little one and I have a new family. I'm the most content I've ever been in my life."
