Janet Jackson Doesn’t Have A Nanny For 2-Year-Old Son: I Do It All Myself
We know Janet Jackson as the iconic triple-threat and the baby of the First Family of Music – but there’s a side to her that we don’t know much about. She recently opened up about how she handles being a single mom to her 2-year-old son, Eissa Al Mana. Despite being super busy with her Las Vegas residency show, “Metamorphosis,” she’s raising Eissa on her own without a nanny!
“It is hard being a working mother. I don’t have a nanny. I do it all myself. If my mother did it with nine children, there’s no reason I can’t. Of course, when I’m working, someone watches him, [but other than that,] it’s my baby and me.”
“It’s not easy at times, but my life has changed. Obviously my baby comes first.”
According to Janet Jackson, her tour toddler has his own love for music! She says Eissa wants to play the violin!
“He kept taking his drum stick and running it across his guitar. I thought, ‘Why is he playing it like a cello?’ He went into his room and got a figurine of a violin and brought it to me. Then he grabbed his drumstick and guitar and kept going. So I came home with a toy violin, showed him one time how to hold it and that was it.”
“I bought him a real violin and he got so excited. He sleeps with it. He eats breakfast, lunch and dinner with it. I show him little kids playing violin on the iPad, then he was finding them himself, all these child prodigies. He creates melodies!”
Miss-Jackson-If-You’re-Nasty and Baby Eissa’s father – her ex-husband, Wissam Al Mana – welcomed their son in January of 2017, and announced their split that April.
