"I Have Moments Where It Just Hits Me"

Motherhood is still unreal for Jordin Sparks. The celebrity mom tells PEOPLE that she’s still getting used to her new role as a parent.

“I’m a mom,” Jordin tells media. “That’s so nuts,” she exclaims. “I have moments where it just hits me,” Sparks reveals.


Jordin and her husband, Dana Isaiah, welcomed their son, DJ, on May 2, 2018. The little one arrived via natural birth.

“Hospitals just felt a little weird and strange [to me],” Jordin says of the option of labor and delivery in a medical facility. “I had a feeling I wasn’t going to be comfortable on my back and I didn’t want to have to give birth that way,” the star mom reveals.

Jordin instead delivered at home with a doula and her husband by her side. “He was right by me the whole time,” Jordin says of Dana’s support. “When I was going to different places and different universes with the contractions, he was right there in my ear or rubbing my back.”

Dana Isaiah was the first to hold his son upon DJ making entry. “It was just that realizing moment, that everything you had been preparing for was here in your hands,” Dana says of the experience. “Every emotion that you felt throughout the entire pregnancy from start to beginning just ‘Bam,’ and it hits you.”

DJ is Jordin Sparks and Dana Isaiah’s first child.
