She's an icon, a trendsetter, a businessperson and multi-gifted artist (and the owner of the most humble Twitter bio of all time) – we are of course talking about Janet Jackson, who has shared the first photo of her new baby.

Eissa Al Mana is Janet's first child, and he was born back in January – but the singer has waited until now to show fans what the Eissa looks like.

"My baby and me after nap time," she tweeted reassuringly. It's good to know that even the world's most famous celebrates take naps because, let's be honest, they are awesome.

Janet Jackson has been making headlines recently with reports that she has split from husband Wissam Al Mana.

Janet tied the knot with the Qatari business magnate in an intimate ceremony in 2012.

Apparently the couple are no longer living together, but the split is amicable.

Last April, Janet cancelled all of her 'Unbreakable World Tour' UK dates (and several shows worldwide too) in order to focus on starting a family.

Up until that point, the tour had been postponed so Janet could have surgery. There were also rumours (which Janet denied) that she had been diagnosed with throat cancer.

Janet's first husband was R&B singer James DeBarge. They wed in 1984 but broke up a year later and the marriage was annulled. Her second husband was Mexican back-up dancer Rene Elizondo, from 1991 to 2000.
