The 50-year-old singer gave birth to the healthy baby boy earlier this week according to her rep, “"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."
Earlier in 2016, the five-time Grammy winner took a break from touring and postponed dates as she announced that she and her husband were planning to start a family. She confirmed the news in April and kept a low profile throughout her pregnancy.
