“It was miraculously beautiful,” Sparks tells PEOPLE of the birth. “Dana caught him with my midwife, Simona, and when he handed him to me, I was absolutely overwhelmed with joy. He was and is everything we imagined.”

Adds Sparks: “I’m feeling pretty good! I am so grateful for my husband and amazing team at the Natural Birthing Center. I don’t think I would be feeling this great without them!”

And the singer is looking forward to beginning her journey as a mother.

Sparks secretly married Isaiah, a model, in July, and six weeks later learned they were expecting. In the fall, the singer opened up to PEOPLE exclusively to announce her surprise marriage and pregnancy.

“It was about five days after [Dana] moved to L.A.,” Sparks previously told PEOPLE. “He comes in and I go, ‘I’m pregnant.’ It was such a shock for both of us. I turned around and started bawling in the closet. I’m going to be completely honest, I was like, ‘Oh my gosh.’ Everything has been so crazy and fast-forward.”
