Hip-hop legend, and Hollywood actress, Janet Jackson has shared a lovely message to her son Eissa Al Mana, as he clocks 3 today.
Janet Jackson who did not share a photo of her son, took to her Instagram to instead post a throw back photo of herself, showing when she was still heavily pregnant.
The now 53-year-old Janet Jackson captioned the photo with this sweet message:
“3 yrs ago today God blessed me, at the age of 50, with the greatest gift of all. My baby! Happy Bday sweetheart. Mama loves you more than anything else in this world! 🖤🖤🖤,” she wrote.
As Janet noted, she was 50 years old when she gave birth to her first child, with her ex Wissam Al Mana, a major — and majorly happy — shock to all her fans. The “Rhythm Nation” superstar has spent the past three years being a doting single mommy who does it all by herself. No, really — Janet has said multiple times in the past that Eissa doesn’t have a nanny. Someone, of course, watches him while she’s onstage, though. Janet raved about her adorable kid’s bubbly personality in a November 2019 interview with Carrie & Tommy, saying that he’s already inherited the Jackson family’s musical talent. She said that the then-two-year-old “loves watching her band” play, and is very into drums, violin, guitar, and piano. He’s also a big dancer, Hollywoodlife reports.
“He makes up melodies, he carries a tune, he has really good pitch,” she said. ” He even does this thing that my brother [Michael Jackson] did from ‘They Don’t Care About Us,’ the march and the hand. He does a few things. He does the head [movement]. He loves ‘Smooth Criminal’ and the ‘Oooo.’”
While Eissa’s definitely got the moves, Janet said she’s never going to pressure her son to go into the music industry. Instead, she wants him to “always follow [his] heart and listen to [his] gut.”
