Jordin Sparks and Dana Isaiah are now parents. The singer and her husband have welcomed their first child, son Dana Isaiah Thomas Jr.
The baby boy, who will be called DJ, was born May 2 at 9:04 p.m. PT at the Natural Birth Center & Women’s Wellness in L.A. DJ weighed 8 lbs. 4.5 oz. and measured 21.5 inches, People reports.
Sparks describes the birthing process as “miraculously beautiful,” saying, “Dana caught him with my midwife, Simona, and when he handed him to me, I was absolutely overwhelmed with joy. He was and is everything we imagined.” Days after becoming a mother, Sparks tells People, “I’m feeling pretty good! I am so grateful for my husband and amazing team at the Natural Birthing Center. I don’t think I would be feeling this great without them!” Sparks adds she “already” loves nurturing her son, gushing, “The joy, laughter, scrapes and bruises…I can’t wait for it all!”
In November, the twosome announced a double-whammy of news—that they had secretly tied the knot on July 16 and that they were also expecting their first child together in the spring of 2018.
