Janet Jackson’s siblings are all about the singer’s “beautiful” new son, Eissa.
On Tuesday, Feb. 28, brothers Tito and Jackie appeared on “Good Morning Britain,” where they gave an update on sister Janet and her sweet baby boy. “Janet had a beautiful baby boy. It’s all good,” said Jackie. “Everyone’s fine. Everyone’s great.”
The duo also provided a little insight into how the next generation of Jackson’s may be impacted by their parents’ musical legacy. “I guess it’s in their blood,” continued Jackie, who will be joined by brothers Jermaine and Marlon for a 50th anniversary show in June. “They watched us growing up when they were young. They love the business. If that’s what they want to do, go ahead and do it.”
Previously reported, Jackson and her husband, billionaire and businessman Wissam Al Mana, welcomed their first child, a son Eissa on Tuesday, Jan. 3. 2017. “Janet Jackson and husband Wissam Al Mana are thrilled to welcome their new son Eissa Al Mana into the world,” her rep said in a statement a the time. “Janet had a stress free, healthy delivery and is resting comfortably. No further details are available at this time.”
Considering that in September sources close to Jackson had voiced their concerns over weight gain, which placed the pop icon at risk of developing gestational diabetes — a condition that increases the risk of pre-eclampsia, depression, and possible Caesarean section — a “healthy delivery” was the perfect way to kick off the new year.
Of course, it wasn’t long before loved ones took to social media to celebrate the expansion of the Jackson family dynasty. “How exciting! Jan and Wissam just gave birth to a beautiful baby boy!!! Congratulations!!!,” sister LaToya Jackson tweeted.
“Congrats Auntie!! So so happy for you & Wissam. Enjoy every minute with your greatest hit, Eissa. #parenthoodisthebest,” TJ Jackson penned in a special message of his own via Twitter.
