28-year-old American singer Jordin Sparks welcomed her son, Dana Isaiah Thomas Jr on the 2nd of May with her 25-year old husband Dana Isaiah.
According to Jordin, she went to a birth centre to have her baby and things turned went awry when it was discovered that her son was born with his umbilical cord wrapped around his neck.
Thankfully, they were able to quickly take care of the situation.
In an exclusive video shared with PEOPLE, Jordin says “I am overwhelmed with joy”.
According to PEOPLE, Jordin explained that:
“I didn’t see it because I was facing the other way,” Sparks explained, adding that at the time her husband “was just like, ‘I don’t know what to do.’ ”
“He said it almost looked like a scarf — it was wrapped around his neck and bod,” the singer continued, adding that while her husband was holding their newborn son, the midwife “got [the umbilical cord] off really quickly.”
“Then he was good to go,” she added. “‘[He] took his first breath and then [her husband] handed him to me.”
