Jordin Sparks is expecting a baby boy.

The 27-year-old singer - who recently announced she had secretly married Dana Isaiah in July and was pregnant with his first child - has now revealed the couple are having a son and are ''beyond excited'' at the thought of welcoming a little boy into the world.

They told People magazine in a statement: ''We're beyond excited to be having a little boy. We cannot wait to meet him and love him so much already!''

And Jordin also wrote on Instagram: ''IT'S A BOY!!! We have so much to be thankful for and this is definitely at the top of the list!...''

The 'Tattoo' singer is also ''excited'' about her pregnancy curves.

She said: ''I've always loved my curves. Now I have different ones and I'm excited about them.''

But Jordin has resorted to borrowing the 25-year-old aspiring model's clothes as she hasn't yet purchased any maternity wear.

She said: ''For the past month, it's been this in-between stage where I've been taking a hair tie and clipping the hole of [my] jeans onto the little buckle.

''It kind of helps open them a little bit. Then that stopped working and I was just like 'Babe, can I wear your sweatpants?' I've been wearing his sweatpants all the time!''

Dana added: ''I wear sweatpants anyway, but she's like, 'I want to look cute.' She's like, 'I don't have any maternity clothes!' I'm excited we can finally tell people.''

The couple first met in February this year and tied the knot five months later, and though the couple have been together for under one year, they knew the moment they set eyes on one another they would soon be husband and wife.

The 'Battlefield' hitmaker - who dated fellow singer Jason Derulo for three years before they split in 2014 - said: ''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.' 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.

''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.' ''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.''
