ET broke Jackson’s pregnancy news in May. While the 50-year-old pop icon maintained a low profile throughout her pregnancy, Janet debuted her baby bump during a rare public appearance in September and shared a pregnancy update with fans in November.
Janet’s rep confirmed the baby’s birth in a statement to ET on Tuesday.
“Janet Jackson and husband Wissam Al Mana are thrilled to welcome their new son Eissa Al Mana into the world,” the rep revealed. “Janet had a stress-free healthy delivery and is resting comfortably.”
