Janet Jackson and her husband Wissam Al Mana welcomed a baby boy into the world on Tuesday, January 3. The delivery went well and Jackson gave birth to a healthy boy. The singer’s representative reported, “Janet Jackson and husband Wissam Al Mana are thrilled to welcome their new son Eissa Al Mana into the world. Janet had a stress-free, healthy delivery and is resting comfortably. No further details are available at this time.” Jackson is fifty years young and clearly healthier than ever!
Back in 2015, the pop singer postponed her tour after the release of her eleventh studio album Unbreakable, in order to take time for family planning. She has been incredibly busy in recent years having also just launched her own record label with BMG Rights Managements prior to the record release.
The past couple years, Jackson has kept her personal life private. Her life is so under wraps that it was easy to miss when Janet Jackson got married. Jackson and Al Mana married in a quiet ceremony. The public only found out about the private nuptials when she put out a statement to Entertainment Tonight to respond to rumors that she was going to have an “extravagant wedding.” Fans got a huge surprise when she revealed that she was already married!
The statement read, “Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony. Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favorite children’s charities. We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy.”
It turns out her husband is a very wealthy man with an estimated net worth of $1 billion. According to Billboard, he earned his money from his a family business in Qatar. Billboard reported, “he is also the executive director of Al Mana’s fashion portfolio, which includes Hermes, Sonia Rykiel and Agent Provocateur and is a shareholder in the Saks Fifth Avenue stores in Dubai, Doha, Bahrain and Kuwait.”
Besides being rich, he is also a great husband and father. He adores his wife and has spoken openly to Harper’s Bazaar Arabia that he is dating his “dream woman.” Congratulations Janet and Wissam!
