Janet Jackson is no stranger to the music industry and leading a public life as a member of the illustrious Jackson family. She is the eldest child in her well-known family.

Although the dedicated mother-musician wants to bring her daughter on tour with her, it is crucial to her that Eissa be nurtured in the same manner as her.
According to Herald Sun, she admitted to Stellar that being a working mother was difficult. I do not employ a nanny. All of it is done by me. There is no reason I cannot do it as my mother managed to raise nine children. Of course, someone watches him when I’m at work, but it’s just my kid and me. Though often difficult, my life has altered. Of course, my infant comes first.
Jackson considers it a dream come true to have her son Eissa at such a late age. Jackson stated that she would adopt in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar from 2009: “And I think that if I’m genuinely destined to have kids, it will happen if that’s God’s plan for me.”
Jackson still spends the most of her spare time with her kid, taking him to parks, museums, and even for short playdates with his relatives. Even though paparazzi might be an issue at times, an accomplished musician like Jackson still smiles for the cameras and always acts kind.

Jackson, 56, is utterly enamored with her son and credits him with giving her beauty and the will to live.
I feel most beautiful when I’m with my kid because of the gift that God has given me and the fact that he permitted me to do so at that age, the “Control” singer said. “I feel like I’m being corny here, but it’s simply the honest truth: I feel most beautiful when I’m with my son.”
Jackson gives a pretty blunt yet vague response when questioned about her future musical career goals.
“Even though I truly adore it, it still counts as my work and my job. There will eventually be music. precisely when Although I can’t tell for sure now, there will be. It’s too much fun for me not to do it. All I know is this. There are so many things I want to achieve, but being a mother comes first, Jackson told Essence Magazine.
