Rodney Jerkins, Joy Enriquez Welcome Daughter Heavenly Joy
It’s a girl for Rodney ‘Darkchild’ Jerkins and his wife, singer/actress Joy Enriquez, the music producer tells PEOPLE exclusively.
Daughter Heavenly Joy Jerkins was born Tuesday, November 17th at 9:58 a.m. at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, Calif. Baby girl weighed in at 8 lbs. and joins big brother Rodney David Jr., 18 months.
“We never find out the sex of our babies,” Rodney, 32, explains. “It helps Joy push them out better because she wants to know what it is so bad!”
In regards to their new daughter’s unique moniker, the couple began considering the name when Joy was expecting Rodney Jr.
“When we found out we were pregnant, Joy said, ‘This is heavenly,'” shares the producer behind Lady Gaga and Beyoncé’s “Telephone” and Janet Jackson’s “Make Me.” “I said, ‘Hey, there’s a name…Heavenly!'”
