Its been four years since Jordin Sparks and Jason Derulo called it quits after three years of dating, but since that time both have found love in the arms of another.
Sparks reflected on her past relationship in a recent interview with Us Weekly, where she shared her path in finding the one.
“You know, it’s crazy but you have to go through things so that you can appreciate when the right person comes along,” Sparks said. “And what I feel for my husband is unlike anything that I’ve ever felt before. He represents safety and comfort and being home and I know that he loves everything about me.”
Sparks’ whole life has completely changed and she’s found her pace as a wife and new mother. The “No Air” singer wed her longtime love Dana Isaiah in July 2017 and the couple recently put their love on top with the birth of their son, Dana Jr. in May 2018.
Sparks and Derulo seem to remain cordial after a few bumps in the road about their breakup, including subliminal messages in songs and interviews. In 2014, Derulo gave a radio interview where he said scheduling demands and the “pressures of marriage,” contributed to the pair’s split. Derulo has been in a relationship with dancer Ragon Miller since 2017.
Fans raised eyebrows earlier this year when Derulo wrote and quickly deleted an awkward message under a photo of Sparks’ pregnancy announcement saying, “I wish that was my boy. #allmysongsareaboutyou.”
He later said that the message was a cringe-worthy dare on the MTV prank based show Safeword.
Relax ppl I was on the tv show #safeword smh. The show hacked me pages

In a 2017 interview with PEOPLE, Derulo said that he would enforce privacy during his next go-round in a romantic relationship.
“I’m gonna try it different,” he said. “If that is something that actually happens I’m not gonna do it with everybody watching; I’m going to be as private as I can be.”
