Relatives Congratulate Janet Jackson, 50, After the Birth of Her Son
The famous family of 50-year-old Janet Jackson is celebrating following the the birth of her first child, a boy named Eissa al-Mana.
Jermaine Jackson posted a message on Instagram Tuesday featuring a blue baseball that said: “It’s A Boy!”
LaToya Jackson tweeted congratulations.
The "Pleasure Principle" singer’s father, Joe, posted on his website: “Congratulations to my daughter Janet Jackson on the birth of my Grandson. Making me a grandfather again! Wishing you all the love and happiness a father could wish a daughter.”
A rep for the youngest Jackson family sibling said Tuesday: "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."
The "Together Again" singer announced she was taking time off her tour to plan for a family in April.
Jackson secretly wed her third husband, billionaire businessman Wissam al-Mana in 2012.
Months after her brother, Michael’s sudden death in 2009, she told Harper's Bazaar that she would love to have kids.
“I think that if I'm really supposed to have kids, it will happen, if that's God's plan for me," she said.
Jackson’s most recent song, "Dammn Baby," was released in early 2016.
