Congratulations are in order for Jordin Sparks and Dana Isaiah! The season sixth American Idol winner has welcomed her first child, a son named Dana Isaiah Thomas Jr., with her husband of one year on Wednesday, May 2, multiple sources have confirmed.
As per the report, the baby boy, who will be called DJ, was born at 9:04 p.m. PT at the Natural Birth Center & Women's Wellness in Los Angelas. The newborn weighed 8 lbs. 4.5 oz. and measured 21.5 inches.
The songstress described 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 mom, Jordin told media,
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!
The singer further added that she "already" loves nurturing her son, saying,
The joy, laughter, scrapes and bruises…I can't wait for it all!
Just three days after the arrival of DJ, in an appearance at the Show Dogs premiere on Saturday, May 5, Jordin showed her post-baby body.
Wait @jordinsparks had a baby two days ago and rolled up on the red carpet this morning looking like a #Superstar ... she told me she had the baby Wednesday afternoon, and four hours later was out of the birthing center and home. Congrats to Jordin and her husband Dana ... Dana Jr was 8 pounds and is happy and healthy.
She also shared a photo of her newborn via Instagram on Saturday. She wrote,
He’s here & we couldn’t be more in love!!! Go DJ!
