Janet Jackson gives birth to a boy and named him Eissa Al Mana.
Pop star Janet Jackson has given birth to her first child, a boy, at the age of 50 on Tuesday, her spokesman said Tuesday.
The youngest of the Jackson family Janet got married to a businessman Wissam Al Mana in 2012 and now Janet Jackson gives birth to their first baby after four years.
“Janet Jackson and husband Wissam Al Mana are thrilled to welcome their new son Eissa Al Mana into the world,” the singer’s representative said in a press release.
“Janet had a stress-free, healthy delivery and is resting comfortably.”
Jackson and Qatari businessman Mr. Al Mana married in 2012, and the singer in April postponed her Unbreakable world tour so they could focus on starting a family.
In October, she showed off her baby bump in an exclusive photo for People magazine.
Jackson, the fiercely private youngest child of the famed Jackson singing family, has not given any details of the pregnancy or where the baby was born.
She and her husband have stayed out of the limelight since their nuptials, which didn’t stop tabloids from reporting the singer had converted to Islam.
In October, photos emerged of Jackson in a full-length head covering which fuelled the rumours of conversion.
The singer has not commented on her religion and as several social media users pointed out, the covering was, in fact, an item from a menswear line released that year.
Janet Damita Jo Jackson who is American singer, songwriter, dancer and actress were well known for a series of sonically innovative, socially conscious and sexually provocative records.
She had put up elaborate stage shows, television and film roles. She has been a prominent figure in popular culture for over 30 years.
She had two previous marriages: a year-long union with soul singer James DeBarge in the mid-1980s, and with dancer Rene Elizondo Jr from 1991 to 2000.
The singer won an international fanbase award in the 1980’s with her albums, “Control” and “Janet Jackson’s Rythm Nation 1814,” which brought together pop music and funk with the emerging genre hip hop.
The albums were done socially conscious lyrics, after which Janet Jackson identified with women’s empowerment and was done with intricately choreographed live shows.
