American superstar Janet Jackson and Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana are now the proud parents of a baby boy named Eissa Al Mana, their publicist has confirmed.

Jackson, 50, “had a stress free healthy delivery and is resting comfortably,” the singer’s representative told news media.

The world’s most famous Qatari baby is her first child.

The couple, who have been married since 2012, first confirmed news of the pregnancy in October.

Rumors had been flying after Jackson abruptly canceled her “Unbreakable” tour last year.

At the time, she said, “My husband and I are planning our family. I have to rest up, doctor’s orders.”

Eissa is the Arabic word for Jesus, who is highly revered as a prophet by Muslims.


Jackson herself hasn’t announced the baby’s arrival on social media, but relatives have been sending their well wishes on Twitter, according to EOnline.

For example, nephew TJ Jackson said (with a few errors thanks to autocorrect):
