Jordin Sparks has plenty to celebrate on her 24th birthday (Dec. 22). The “American Idol” winner is not only a successful recording artist, but is now transitioning to acting (don’t worry, she’s not going to stop singing). Plus, she’s been in a loving relationship with singer Jason Derulo for two and a half years.
Although the two aren’t engaged, Derulo’s latest single, “Marry Me,” an ode to the birthday girl (who costars in the video), makes it seem like marriage might be in the cards for the happy couple. Sparks told Zap2it recently that she understands why people have been wondering about their status.
“It’s so funny because Jason’s like ‘Everybody keeps asking me [about marriage]’ and I say ‘We did kind of set ourselves up for that one,'” Sparks says. “We’re definitely on that trajectory to get to that point. Things are so good with us now. He’s working really hard, I’m working really hard. We love the time that we get to spend together because our schedules are so crazy. One day it’ll happen.”
Yes, Sparks does see a wedding in her future, but she doesn’t know how everything before that will play out. “As far as the engagement and stuff? I have no idea. I’m the girl. I’m not supposed to know! When the time is right that’ll definitely happen but we’re in a really, really, good place,” she says. “He loves me; I love him. We’ve had conversations about our future and things like that. We’re good.”
One thing she knows for sure: It won’t be in a music video. “Right? I was like ‘Babe, you can’t do that now. We already did the video.’ No videos.”
