By Jewel Wicker

Janet Jackson is a mom!

The 50-year-old singer has given birth to a baby boy, according to People. This is Jackson's first child.

“Janet Jackson and husband Wissam Al Mana are thrilled to welcome their new son Eissa Al Mana into the world,” a rep for the singer told the publication.

Rumors of Jackson's pregnancy began last year after the singer announced that she was postponing her world tour to "plan a family" with her husband, Al Mana. The couple married in 2012.

Jackson last performed in Atlanta in 2015.

She was scheduled to return to the city for a show at Philips Arena in March of 2016, but rescheduled the show in order to have surgery. The show was further postponed, along with the rest of the tour, due to Jackson's pregnancy.
