Janet Jackson welcomes first child at age 50
On Tuesday (Jan03) Janet Jackson gave birth to her first child with billionaire husband Wissam Al Mana. As E!News reports, the baby boy was named Eissa and Janet “had a stress free healthy delivery and is resting comfortably.”
“Janet Jackson and husband Wissam Al Mana are thrilled to welcome their new son Eissa Al Mana into the world,” reads a statement issued by the singer’s representative to People.com.
The singer hinted at her pregnancy in March 2016, when she cancelled the rest of her Unbreakable World Tour until 2017 to focus on starting a family with her husband of four years.
Soon after the news broke of Eissa’s arrival, many of Janet’s relatives took to Twitter and expressed their congratulations to the singer: “Congrats Auntie @JanetJackson!!! So so happy for you & Wissam,” TJ Jackson wrote online. “Enjoy every minute with your greatest hit, Elissa. #parenthoodisthebest.”
