Janet Jackson has welcomed her first child with husband Wissam Al Mana to the world!
The 50 year old pop icon gave birth to a healthy baby boy named Eissa Al Mana on Tuesday 3rd January.
News of Jackson’s pregnancy broke last year in May with the singer announcing she was postponing the last part of her tour.
“We’re in the second leg of the tour and there actually has been a sudden change,” Jackson explained in a video posted to Twitter at the time. “I thought it was important that you be the first to know. My husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour.”
“Please, if you could try and understand that it’s important that I do this now,” she continued. “I have to rest up, doctor’s orders. But I have not forgotten about you. I will continue the tour as soon as I possibly can.”
Jackson has remained out of the spotlight for most of her pregnancy and only offered her fans a quick update in November saying, “Hey you guys.. It’s been awhile.. but I’m still listening,” she wrote. “I feel your love and prayers.. Thank you.. and I’m doing well.”
Congratulations to the happy couple! We can’t wait to see a photo of him!
