“I’m a mom. That’s so nuts,” the American Idol winner tells PEOPLE exclusively in its latest issue about welcoming son. “I have moments where it just hits me.”
On why she to chose natural birth, the singer said:
“Hospitals just felt a little weird and strange [to me],” says Sparks. “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.”
Fortunately, she had husband on hand to catch the newcomer. She “handled the birth like a champ,” her husband, 26, added about his wife.

During the emotional delivery, “he was right by me the whole time,” says Sparks.
“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 also revealed that when it was time for the baby to arrive, her husband was the one who caught his son.
“I finished out the contractions on the bed and then we went to the tub. When it was time to push, Dana received him,” says Sparks.

Isaiah, a fitness enthusiast and model who wed Sparks in July 2017, said,

After Isaiah received the child, the happy couple “cried like little babies” according to Isaiah. “It was just that realizing moment, that everything you had been preparing for was here in your hands.
