At an age when many women are approaching menopause, Janet Jackson, a 50-year-old singer, has given birth to her first child, a baby boy.
The singer’s publicist, in a statement, said Jackson had a “stress-free” delivery of Eissa Al Mana.
“Janet Jackson and husband Wissam Al Mana are thrilled to welcome their new son Eissa Al Mana into the world,” her publicist said.
“Janet had a stress free healthy delivery and is resting comfortably. No further details are available at this time.”
The singer’s sister, La Toya Jackson, congratulated her on Twitter, writing, “How exciting! Jan and Wissam just gave birth to a beautiful baby boy!!! Congratulations.”
Janet Jackson secretly married her third husband, Qatari billionaire Wissam Al-Mana, in 2012.
She was previously married to soul singer James DeBarge in the mid-1980s, and to dancer Rene Elizondo Jr from 1991-2000.
The seven-time Grammy award winner had told fans in April 2016 that she was postponing her ‘Unbreakable’ tour because of a “sudden change”.
This led to series of speculation about a possible pregnancy until she exclusively confirmed it to People Magazine.
