Jordin Sparks Says Her Husband Caught Their Baby During Childbirth

Jordin Sparks Says Her Husband Caught Their Baby During Childbirth

Just add “catcher” to Dana Isaiah’s list of job titles.

In a just-published interview with People, singer Jordin Sparks recalls the day she gave birth to her first child with Isaiah, whom she married last year. And it seems the 26-year-old model played a crucial role in the delivery: When Sparks delivered their son, Dana Isaiah, Jr., Isaiah was there to catch the baby, with the help of Sparks’ midwife.

Talk about literally being a hands-on dad!

Sparks gets candid about motherhood in the latest issue of People, telling the outlet that she’s still becoming used to the “mom” title.

“I’m a mom. That’s so nuts,” the “Tattoo” singer told People. “I have moments where it just hits me.”

That’s not all: Sparks also opened up about why she chose to have a natural birth, which refers to labor without pain-reducing drugs. The “American Idol” winner delivered her 8-pound, 4,5-ounce baby boy, whom she calls DJ, on May 2 at 9:04 p.m. at the Natural Birth Center & Women’s Wellness in Los Angeles.

Just look at how cute he is in this photo Sparks posted to her Instagram account:

For his part, Isaiah told the magazine that his wife “handled [the birth] like a champ.” But the 28-year-old mom attributed that to having her husband by her side. “When I was going to different places and different universes with the contractions, he was right there in my ear or rubbing my back,” she said.

Now, the father-son duo is inseparable. Here he is holding DJ earlier this month:

Daddy’s happy whittle baby 👶🏽🖤

Childbirth can obviously be intense, so it’s beautiful that Isaiah never left Sparks’ side. And that bond can only get stronger from here on out.
