While many are surprised the couple decided to have a child due to Jackson's age, it's what they named the boy that is really sparking people's attention:

For those who were hoping it would be Michael, or another one of the Jackson 5 names, sadly, you'll be disappointed.

The couple named their son, Eissa.

In Hebrew, Eissa means “salvation,” according to babynamespedia.com.

Eissa is also the name for Jesus in Arabic.

According to a source who spoke with People:

“Janet Jackson and husband Wissam Al Mana are thrilled to welcome their new son Eissa Al Mana into the world. Janet had a stress-free healthy delivery and is resting comfortably.”

Janet's eldest brother, Jermaine, also shared some insight on his baby sister's pregnancy:

“She’ll be a great mother because she is very tough, very strict."
