Some people have a whirlwind romance. Jordin Sparks has had something of a whirlwind life. After winning the sixth season of American Idol in 2007 at the young age 17, and becoming the youngest winner in the series' history, Sparks began a fabulous singing career.
She then began a romance with model, Dana Isaiah. The couple, Sparks, 28 and Isaiah, 25, got married last summer in July and just six weeks later, found out they were expecting a baby.
On May 2nd at 9:04 pm, the newlyweds became new parents at the Natural Birth Center & Women's Wellness in Los Angeles, near the famous Cedar-Sinai hospital. They welcomed Dana Isaiah Thomas Jr., otherwise known as "D.J." who weighed 8 pounds, 4.5 ounces and measured 21.5 inches in height.
“It was just this incredibly miraculous, beautiful moment that I don’t know could ever be duplicated or replicated," Sparks told People. "Like you see it in movies, how emotional people get, but until you are actually sitting there it’s beyond anything I’ve ever felt in my life. Ahhh, I’m getting chills just thinking about it".
Sparks chose an all-natural water birth plan at the Natural Birth Center with a midwife. She stated that her husband caught baby D.J. in the water with the help of her midwife, Simona, and described the experience as an "incredibly miraculous, beautiful moment". She did state, however, that she was glad that Simona was nearby because the umbilical cord was wrapped around the baby's neck twice! Luckily, the midwife knew just what to do and D.J. was perfectly fine after the cord was quickly removed.
After the birth, Sparks experienced a second bout of excitement when she was photographed on the red carpet for her new film, Show Dogs. She came to the movie premiere in a low-cut, pretty patterned, multi-colored mini-dress. The singer stunned fans because she looked pre-baby even though she was 3 days post-birth!

"Had a baby three days ago WHERE?!" Twitter user and Sparks fan Kiana Shepherd tweeted.
We have to agree. Sparks looks pretty amazing being that just days before this photo was taken, an eight-pound human was turning somersaults in her tummy!
Way to go, Jordin! Congratulations are in order, several times over! For finding true love! For getting married! For having a baby! For looking incredible just 3 days after! And last but probably least (at least in her eyes), for Show Dogs!
Catch Show Dogs in theaters on May 18th, and keep your eyes peeled for more adorable pics of Jodin's new little man!
