According to PEOPLE, Sparks and Isaiah welcomed DJ on Wednesday evening at the Natural Birth Center & Women’s Wellness, Los Angeles. He was born weighing 8 lbs. 4.5 oz. and measuring 21½ inches.

Sparks announced last fall that she had secretly married Isaiah and that they were also expecting their first child. They were married in mid-July in a wedding ceremony in Hawaii. 

Sparks shared her pregnancy journey with photos on Instagram, telling ESSENCE that she was excited to be a mother.

“I'm excited to see the wonder. I'm excited to see what he looks like — see how his personality is, and how he grows. I'm also excited to see Dana as a father. I'm excited to see how I am. The sleepless nights, I'm a little nervous about. I've had a lot of those over my career, but at the same time I know that'll be worth it.”

Congrats to the new parents!
