Guys, a seriously amazing thing just happened. Janet Jackson gave birth to her first child (a boy!) with husband Wissam Al Mana! The star’s rep exclusively confirmed this news to People, stating, “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.”

Of course, we are beyond excited for Janet and Wissam, but we can imagine that the couple is over-the-moon. When Janet confirmed her pregnancy to People back in October, she said, “We thank God for our blessing.” Now, this might have been foreshadowing because her baby boy’s name is…


Why was that foreshadowing, you ask? Well, according to JoyIsBaby, the Hebrew variation name translates to “Yahweh is salvation.” And what about Yahweh? Well, according to Behind the Name, this word refers to a name for the Hebrew God.
