Janet Jackson thanked God for blessing her with baby Eissa and wished her only child a happy 3rd birthday on Friday.
The 53-year-old singer shared a cute tribute on her Instagram that featured a stunning throwback of her growing baby bump.
“3 yrs ago today God blessed me, at the age of 50, with the greatest gift of all,” she wrote in the caption of her post. “My baby! Happy Bday sweetheart. Mama loves you more than anything else in this world! ???”
Janet shares baby Eissa with her estranged husband, multi-billionaire businessman Wissam Saleh Al Mana. The “Rhythm Nation” artist geo-tagged her amazing baby bump throwback in London. It is safe to assume that she crossed the pond to celebrate with Essa because that’s where Al Mana calls home.
She has been traveling a lot recently because she just landed at JFK airport in New York City ahead of New Year’s after some shows in Australia and New Zeland. The mom partied it up in the big apple and she shared a pic that looks like she was back on a plane yesterday.
Thousands of Janet’s followers took the opportunity to wish the 3-year-old a happy birthday as well, including at least one of her famous friends.
Ciara was one of the first people to send well wishes and commented, “HBD Eissa! ❤️” on Janet’s post.
She was obviously not alone and the comments section was flooded with praise for Janet and her kid.
“Happy Birthday baby Eissa. My fellow Capricorn. ❤️❤️❤️❤️” one fan wrote while another said, “Your baby bump was so beautiful.. Happy Birthday E-Money!!!??❤️❤️”
“EISSA EISSA MAMAAAAAA. Happy Birthday big boy ? #RahRahRah” another excited fan wrote.
Janet surprised her fans with a new look for the new year. She was seen rocking awesome long dreadlocks and has been wearing her glasses the last few times we have seen her. Her devoted fans sounded off about how much they liked the look.
“Happy New Year bestie!!! Love the hair!!!!!?” one follower commented while another said, “New do in 2020!!!❤️❤️?? Love it!! Happy new year!!!!”
Her first post in 2020 did cause a stir online because several fans thought she looked like her late brother, Michael Jackson.
