Jordin Sparks and husband Dana Isaiah welcome first child
The American Idol alum, 28, and her 25-year-old husband welcomed their first child, a son named Dana Isaiah Thomas Jr
It's a boy! Jordin Sparks and husband Dana Isaiah welcomed their baby boy on Wednesday (May 2) at 9:04 pm at the Natural Birth Center & Women’s Wellness, Los Angeles. He weighed 8 lbs 4.5 oz and measured in at 21½ inches, People reports.
The couple has named their son Dana Isaiah Thomas Jr. “It was miraculously beautiful,” Jordin said about the experience of giving birth. “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.” She added that she was feeling good all thanks to the support of her lovely husband.
"I’m feeling pretty good! I am so grateful for my husband and the amazing team at the Natural Birthing Center. I don’t think I would be feeling this great without them!” she said. Jordin confessed that she had always wanted to be a mother and cannot wait for the journey into motherhood to start.
“I’ve always loved kids and knew that if given the blessing, that I would love and embrace it more than I realized. It’s only been a few days and I love it so much already!” Jordin said. “The joy, laughter, scrapes, and bruises…I can’t wait for it all!” The news about Jordin's pregnancy came six weeks after she married Isaiah.
“It was about five days after [Dana] moved to LA,” she told the magazine at that time. “He comes in and I go, ‘I’m pregnant.’ It was such a shock for both of us. I turned around and started bawling in the closet. I’m going to be completely honest, I was like, ‘Oh my gosh.’ Everything has been so crazy and fast-forward.” While some might take time to process this, Jordin and Isaiah could not have been happier.
The pair even took a babymoon vacation in Cancun and after the two returned home, their family gathered for a low-key baby shower in Arizona. "I’m the most content I’ve ever been in my life,” Jordin said at that time. We wish the new parents all the best and all the happiness in the world!
