American singer, songwriter, and actress Jordin Sparks has given birth to her first child. Sparks – who rose to fame in 2007 after winning the sixth season of American Idol at age 17 – welcomed son Dana Isaiah Thomas Jr. on Wednesday (May 2nd).
Jordin Sparks married the father of his son, fitness model Dana Isaiah, in July 2017. In November 2017 she announced her pregnancy and following that, the singer revealed on her Instagram page their first child will be a boy, whom they expect in spring 2018.
On the subject of their pregnancy, Sparks admitted it was, at first, a “shock,” as the couple had only been married a month, but they quickly embraced the news.
Jordin gave birth at the Natural Birth Center & Women’s Wellness in Los Angeles, and the baby weighed 8 lbs. 4.5 oz. and measured 21.5 inches.
Moreover, her 25-year-old model husband caught their newborn son: “It was miraculously beautiful,” she revealed. “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.”
