American Idol Alum Jordin Sparks Gives Birth to Her First Child

By  | 

Jordin Sparks‘s pregnancy has been a true whirlwind. We still remember when we got a double-dose of surprise back in November 2017 when she announced that she had secretly gotten married to Dana Isaiah AND that they were expecting a baby.

Once the couple finally shared their wonderful news with the world, they began to share more and more about this exciting new chapter with us all on social media. We got to see all of Jordin’s hilarious pregnancy cravings and funny situations and even got to experience the intimate moment when they heard their child’s heartbeat.

The nine months flew by and we couldn’t be more excited for the American Idol alum because she’s officially a mom! Dana Isaiah Thomas Jr. was born on May 2 at 9:04 p.m. and we will be the first to say that he is one seriously cute baby!

He's here & we couldn't be more in love!!! Go DJ! ?? @people

It’s obvious that the new parents couldn’t be more in love with their newest addition and Jordin told PEOPLE that she is “overwhelmed with joy.”

Thankfully little DJ is perfectly healthy, but there was a small scare in the delivery room. Just three days after giving birth, Jordin hit the red carpet for the premiere of her new movie Show Dogs. If that wasn’t impressive enough on its own, the new mom even opened up to PEOPLE about what went down during the delivery.

The 28-year-old revealed that her son’s umbilical cord was actually wrapped around his neck twice. Jordin said, “It almost looked like a scarf — it was wrapped around his neck and bod. [The midwife] got it off really quickly then he was good to go.”

We are so glad that the singer was in such good hands and that the situation was taken care of immediaitely. We know that Jordin and Dana are going to be the best parents and we can’t wait to see more pictures of the new family of three.
