What a fantastic way to begin the new year!

50 year-old, five time Grammy-winning singer Janet Jackson welcomed  her first child, a baby boy named Eissa Al Mana, with husband Wissam Al Mana on Tuesday, January 3, 2017.

The singer first hinted she was expecting her first child after confirming she was postponing her Unbreakable World Tour because she was planning to start a family back in April of 2016.

In a Facebook video message she said, “My husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour. Please, if you can try and understand that it’s important that I do this now. I have to rest up, doctor’s orders! But I have not forgotten about you. I will continue the tour as soon as I possibly can.”

Janet married Al Mana, a Qatari billionaire and businessman, back in 2012 in front of family and friends.

Congratulations to the new parents!
