Jordin Sparks says she’s happy with only having one child: ‘I could not handle two of these conversations right now!’
Jordin Sparks apparently has her hands full with just one child.
The singer recently spoke about the dynamic that exists in her new family and noted that she was fine with not having any more children.
The 30-year-old Tattoo singer said that the time that she and her husband have their hands full with their two-and-a-half-year-old son D.J and that they are happy to see his continuing growth.

In an interview with People, the former American Idol winner noted that her time at home has caused her to reflect on the blessings that she and her family have.
‘I’ve been in a constant state of gratitude for my health, for the roof over my head, for my family, my family’s health. It’s been nuts, but it’s been good at the same time.’
She also felt that adding another child to the family would take up too much time and energy, and that keeping the circle small would allow for more interaction with her son.
‘It’s a lot to keep him entertained, and we have these full-on conversations. So for me, I’m like, “You know what? I know, mentally, I could not handle two of these conversations right now.”‘

The singer commented on her son’s intelligence and how that makes her feel better as a mom, stating: ‘He knows exactly what he wants, what he likes, what he doesn’t like’.
Sparks and her 28-year-old husband Dana Isaiah welcomed D.J in mid-2018. The couple were married in November 2017.
The Grammy Award-nominated musician began her career singing in various competitions before winning the sixth season of American Idol; at 17 years old, she became the youngest winner in the show’s history.
In 2007, she released her self-titled solo album that featured the singles Tattoo, which reached the number eight position on the Billboard Hot 100, and No Air, a duet with Chris Brown that hit the number three spot on the list.

In 2012, the singer branched out into acting with a leading role in the musical drama Sparkle, a remake of the 1976 film of the same name based off of the life of The Supremes.
Prior to the release of the film, Sparks put out a sophomore album entitled Battlefield in 2009, which received mixed reviews, with praise going towards her vocal performance and delivery.
The One Step At a Time singer then entered into an uncertain period with regards to recording music, and eventually released a 2014 EP entitled #ByeFelicia, with a full-length studio album being released the following year.
After a five-year hiatus from recording music, Sparks released two back-to-back singles in June and July, with an EP slated to follow soon afterwards.
