The countdown to parenthood is on for Jordin Sparks, 28, and her fitness-model husband, Dana Isaiah, 25, whose son is due in the spring. In an interview with Life & Style, Jordin talks about how her changing body has taken her on a bit of a wild ride so far.

"It’s crazy!” the singer tells Life & Style. "My first trimester, I craved a lot of salty stuff like chips, pretzels — and then, randomly, blood oranges out of nowhere. I could always do candy, pickles."

She’s also been feeling some back pain lately, but Jordin has the right attitude. “I’m like, OK, got a couple more months of this,” she tells Life & Style. "We can do it!"
