Janet Jackson’s 2020 is already off to a very special start. The iconic superstar recently took to Instagram to share some heartfelt words about her son Eissa’s 3rd birthday—which clearly made her emotional.
Three years ago, Janet Jackson shocked the world when she gave birth to her first child, son Eissa, at the age of 50. Now, her adorable little boy is her pride and joy, so she decided to share a sweet message with her fans on social media to let them know how much her baby boy means to her.
Janet posted this on Instagram:
“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!”
Janet previously explained how patient she is as a mother, “I’ve always been a patient person, but there’s more patience that you have to have [in motherhood] and I never knew I was as patient as I really am. He’s first and foremost in my life. I get up, I go to sleep — everything is about him. He comes first in my life.”
It also seems that baby Eissa may have inherited his legendary family’s musical genes, according to Janet he is already showing signs of being a future performer:
“He makes up melodies, he carries a tune, he has really good pitch. [He] does this thing that my brother [Michael] 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,’ but if her son doesn’t want to go into music himself, that’s more than okay with her: “It’s really about what he wants to do with his life.”
Janet shares custody of Eissa with her soon-to-be ex-husband Wissam Al Mana, the couple officially separated back in 2017.
