The three-month-old son of Janet Jackson co-starred with his music superstar mom in a photo she posted on Twitter Friday. The picture shows Jackson kissing her yawning son, with the caption saying, "My baby and me after nap time."
Early response indicates Eissa's debut was a hit: By Saturday afternoon, the photo had been retweeted more than 23,000 times, earning more than 78,000 likes along the way.
Jackson recently split with her husband and the boy's father, Wissam Al Mana. He posted a note titled "Love" on his website, with a picture of Jackson, 50, in the background.
The undated message read: "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 x."
Janet Jackson shares first baby photo amid split from husband
Janet Jackson‘s baby has made his Instagram debut.
“My baby and me after nap time,” she wrote on a post showing her with son Eissa, who was born in January.
Motherhood hasn’t come without difficulty for Jackson, 50, who recently split from billionaire husband Wissam Al Mana.
“She thought he had become too controlling during the pregnancy, and she had already allowed him to dictate her appearance and even the way she performed at concerts,” said a source of the couple’s break up.
Page Six exclusively reported that she had already had the locks changed on their Trump International apartment before the announcement of their separation.
“She wanted the locks changed a few weeks ago, and no keys for him,” an insider said.
See the first photo of Janet Jackson's baby boy
Fans got a first glimpse of Janet Jackson's baby boy, Eissa, via the pop star's website and social media on Friday.
"My baby and me after nap time," Jackson wrote in the photo she shared that shows her hugging Eissa while he yawns.
Jackson, 50, and her husband, Wissam Al Mana, welcomed their first child in January after a "stress-free healthy delivery," a representative for the singer said.
Last year, Jackson announced that she was postponing her tour amid speculation that she was pregnant.
"I thought it was important that you be the first to know," she said in a video. "My husband and I are planning our family, so I'm going to have to delay the tour."
Jackson then went under the radar, though she was spotted shopping in September and appeared to be pregnant in photos published by "Entertainment Tonight" on the show's website.
The singer publicly confirmed the she was expecting in an interview with People in October.
"We thank God for our blessing," she told the publication.
There are reports the superstar singer split from her husband of five years shortly after giving birth to their son.
Jackson's representatives have not commented on the current state of her marriage to Al Mana, a Qatari businessman.
