Pop star Janet Jackson has given birth to her first child, a boy, at the age of 50, her publicist has said.

“Janet Jackson and husband Wissam Al Mana are thrilled to welcome their new son Eissa Al Mana into the world,” the singer’s representative said in a statement to People magazine.

“Janet had a stress-free, healthy delivery and is resting comfortably.”Wissam Al Mana stands with his arm around the waist of Janet Jackson in Milan.

 

Jackson and Qatari businessman Mr Al Mana married in 2012, and the singer in April postponed her Unbreakable world tour so they could focus on starting a family.
