Janet Jackson welcomes a son, Eissa

On Tuesday, Janet Jackson, 50, gave birth to her first child, son Eissa Al Mana.

"Janet Jackson and her husband Wissam Al Mana are thrilled to welcome their new son Eissa Al Mana into the world," a representative for Jackson told People. "Janet had a stress-free, healthy delivery, and is resting comfortably." Jackson, 50, and Al Mana, a Qatari businessman, married in 2012. In April 2016, she postponed her world tour, telling fans it was because "my husband and I are planning our family," and the news broke a month later that she was expecting a baby.
