This is SO sweet! A new report claims that Janet Jackson’s 1st child will be a BOY — and that she’s honoring her late brother Michael in a major way by giving her unborn son his name! If the rumors are true, this is huge news! Talk about a special way to memorialize her older bro.
Paying tribute to her family in a super special way, mom-to-be Janet Jackson, 50, has reportedly chosen to name her unborn baby after her two late brothers: Michael Jackson and Brandon Jackson — Marlon’s twin who died at birth. Based off of these names, it can be assumed that Janet and her hubby Wissam Al Mana, 41, are expecting a little boy, at least according to Radar Online.
The publication claims it’s heard from sources that Janet’s first child will be named Michael Brandon. “Janet will honor both Michael and Brandon,” a family insider revealed to the media outlet. “It’s something that her husband agreed to when she got pregnant.” But those won’t be the baby’s only names. Another source told the mag that Wissam, a billionaire businessman, is a “traditional Muslim who believes the man makes all of the decisions and the wife must abide by them.”
However, despite his strong Muslim beliefs, Wissam apparently granted “permission” for the “Control” singer to honor her brothers, the source said. “Michael Brandon will be in the middle,” the insider dished. “The child will have a name given by Wissam, and will take Wissam’s last name.”
In fact, the baby, who’s reportedly due in late December, will have a Muslim first AND last name, according to a Jackson family insider. Now we’re anxious to hear what the child’s first name will be! But we love how Janet’s allegedly paying tribute to her fallen brothers with the middle names. We’re so excited for her to finally give birth!
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — do you think Janet’s really having a baby boy? Are you excited to find out the sex of her child?
