(ABC News) – Jason DeRulo will definitely be going home for the holidays, but not to his own family.
The singer told ABC News that this year he’ll be spending the holidays with his girlfriend, Jordin Sparks.
“I’m going to spend some time with Jordin’s family in Phoenix,” the “Marry Me” singer, 24, told ABC News Radio at KIIS-FM’s annual Jingle Ball at the Staples Center.
The talented couple has been dating for only a couple of years but already have their holiday routines down.
“Since the first year, we’ve been switching off,” Sparks said. “In the beginning, he took me to his family at Thanksgiving and that’s where I pretty much met his entire family, and then he came to Arizona and celebrated my birthday and Christmas Eve with us, and then he went home.”
Last year, they switched holidays, Sparks said. “He was in Arizona for Thanksgiving, and I went and spent Christmas with him,” she said. “Now it’s gonna flip again this year!”
It’s been a monster year for DeRulo, who started his career writing songs at the age of 16 for many artists, including Diddy, Lil Wayne, Pitbull and Cassie. Now fans can follow his moves offstage, as his hit song “The Other Side” was added to the video game Just Dance.
“It’s really cool,” DeRulo said. “My nieces do the little videos of them dancing to my song on the game, and that’s really exciting.”
