In the midst of her split from husband Wissam Al Mana, Janet Jackson is focusing on motherhood.
The pop star took to Instagram to share the first photo of her son Eissa — more than three months after she gave birth! She posed for a selfie with her baby boy, who was captured mid-yawn in the shot.
“My baby and me after nap time,” the 50-year-old new mom wrote in the caption of the adorable photo.
Fans quickly flooded the “Rhythm Nation” singer with comments of love and support. “You deserve this love! So Happy for you!” one fan wrote, and others gushed over how cute her baby boy is.
Janet gave birth to her first child — whom she shares with estranged husband Wissam — in January. But less than three months after welcoming their bundle of joy, Janet and the Qatari businessman decided to separate after four years of marriage.
“They separated shortly after the baby was born,” a source told People about their split. “The cultural differences between her and Wissam became even more obvious [after Eissa arrived]. They come from very different worlds.”
Even though cultural differences played a part in their separation, a source revealed to The Mail on Sunday that the couple will still be dedicated to co-parenting little Eissa — who will remain with his mom at her home in London. It seems like their split is amicable — and it might not be for long! The billionaire recently updated his website with a touching message to his estranged wife — and he even hinted at a possible reconciliation.
“To the most beautiful person in the world, thank you for your divine love, your eternal support and for being my best friend. I love you so much, inshallah we will be together in the Great Forever,” the 42-year-old wrote.
