Janet Jackson is a mom! The singer and her husband Wissam Al Mana welcomed their first child on Tuesday.

They named their baby boy Eissa, according to a statement made by Jackson's representative to People magazine.

“Janet had a stress-free healthy delivery and is resting comfortably," the statement added.

The 50-year-old singer's pregnancy made news in April 2016, when she postponed her Unbreakable tour in order to start a family. Jackson did not confirm her pregnancy at the time, but broke her silence later in October.

"We thank God for our blessing," she told People, while posing for a photo with her growing baby bump.

This is also the first child for Al Mana, who is a 42-year-old business magnate from Qatar. The duo married in 2012.
