Singer Janet Jackson has at the age of 50 given birth to her first child, a baby boy, her publicist has confirmed.

It’s official! The Jackson legacy will continue, as pop legend Janet Jackson just had her first child.

The 50-year-old singer and her husband, Wissam Al Mana, welcomed their first child into the world Tuesday.

A statement said the musician and her Qatari businessman husband, Wissam Al Mana, were “thrilled” to welcome the infant, Eissa Al Mana.

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

Speculation about her pregnancy surfaced last April when she postponed her Unbreakable tour.

She posted a video on Twitter at the time in which she told fans that she was postponing the tour because “there’s been a sudden change”.

She said she wanted to focus on planning a family with her husband, whom she wed in 2012.

Jackson had earlier been spotted in London shopping for baby essentials.
