The singer is thrilled with her first child
Janet Jackson and husband Wissam Al Mana just welcomed their first child, a son named Eissa Al Mana, to the world on Tuesday.
Her representative said in a statement: “Janet Jackson and husband Wissam Al Mana are thrilled to welcome their new son Eissa Al Mana into the world. Janet had a stress-free healthy delivery and is resting comfortably.”
While the 50-year-old singer has remained out of the public eye, she took to social media in November to let people know she was well and healthy.
She wrote at the time via Twitter: “Hey you guys.. It’s been awhile.. but I’m still listening.. I feel your love and prayers.. Thank you.. and I’m doing well.”
And Janet – who confirmed her pregnancy in October – was reportedly suffering from severe morning sickness.
An insider previously shared: “Janet is super excited. She’s doing great. Janet feels really strong and is just so excited for the baby to come. She feels like this is one of the best things ever to happen to her. She is doing OK and resting until she is due. She is aware of complications, but as of now doctors say she is OK …
Her support system is extremely strong. She is taking things easy these days and is feeling well but not overdoing it in any capacity of her life. Janet is staying healthy for her and her baby. She’s been praying for a child for a very long time. She’s already in the process of thinking of baby names.”
Meanwhile, Janet’s older brother Jermaine firmly believes she will be a perfect mom.
He said before the child’s birth: “She’ll be a great mother because she is very tough, very strict. But I tell her, ‘If you need any parenting skills or baby skills, let me know because I’m the best diaper changer there is on this planet, still to this day.'”
