Her debut album was certified platinum and spawned two Billboard Hot 100 singles as well as her first Grammy nomination. Since then, she has released two more studio albums.
But after working nonstop for years, perhaps motherhood has been the break she needed.
Alongside husband Dana Isaiah, Sparks has taken time to relish every second of her parenthood journey and has shared big moments with her fans every step of the way.
“I’d gone through a crazy time last year, so I was just like ‘You know that? I’m good. I’m going to stay single. I’m just not going to look,'” Sparks told People. “It’s amazing that that phrase, ‘When you don’t look for it, that’s when it comes.'”
“I knew the moment I met you my life was going to change. And it has in the most beautiful way,” she wrote on Instagram. “Thank you for being the most amazing man I know. For bringing me so much light & joy. For making me a Mommy. For constantly building me up & making me better. For loving me & loving DJ.”
The singer credits her faith for bringing the perfect man into her life. Her faith was an important part of her upbringing and it has not wavered even as she went through difficult times. When she found out she was going to be a mom, her faith is what convinced her she was ready for the job.Sparks immediately began preparing for the new role in her life. The health conscious singer knew that her body would change with the pregnancy, but embraced the new changes to her body in the best way.
The American Idol alumna added, “He’s really, really cute. He’s really calm, but he does have some lungs. Maybe he’ll be a singer.”
For Sparks, motherhood is a journey, and she’s ready for all the twists and turns. “The joy, laughter, scrapes and bruises…I can’t wait for it all!” she shared with People. As for plans for more kids, let’s just say the pair is waiting a beat.
“No, no. I’m not ready. Nope,” she laughed to ET. “I would love for him to grow [up with siblings] because we had siblings. But ask me in like three years.”
