Janet Jackson and husband Wissam Al Mana welcomed the the birth of their son this morning, her rep confirms to People magazine
“Janet Jackson and husband Wissam Al Mana are thrilled to welcome their new son Eissa Al Mana into the world,” a rep for the singer, 50, says in a statement.
“She had a stress-free healthy delivery and is resting comfortably.”
The baby was reportedly five weeks late, adding to speculation that the couple was actually using a surrogate – which is neither here nor there and I’m sorry I brought it up.
Jackson married Qatari businessman Al Mana in 2012, and news of their first child’s impending arrival was reported in May. Speculation first began when the singer postponed her Unbreakable World Tour so, as she said in a video posted to Twitter in early April, she and Al Mana could focus on their family.
“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.”
In October, the singer shared a baby bump photo exclusively with PEOPLE, saying, “We thank God for our blessing.”
