Janet Jackson Welcomes Her First Child At 50 Years Old

Posted on

Janet Jackson doesn’t cease to amaze. She just welcomed a son named Eissa on Tuesday, January 3rd at the age of 50!
A rep for the singer said in a statement, “Janet Jackson and husband Wissam Al Mana are thrilled to welcome their new son Eissa Al Mana into the world.”

This is the first child for Jackson and her husband Wissam Al Mana, who she married in 2012.

Jackson postponed her Unbreakable World Tour earlier this year and said in a video, “We’re in the second leg of the tour, and there actually has been a sudden change,” she said in the clip. “I thought it was important that you be the first to know.”

“My husband and I are planning our family,” she continued. “So I’m going to have to delay the tour.”

It was just this past October that she posted a photo exclusively with PEOPLE, saying, “We thank God for our blessing.”
