Janet Jackson Doesn't Have Nanny for Her Son Eissa and Loves It but Says It Can Be Tiring

Being a mother may be a fulfilling yet extremely tiring job, but all is well for Janet Jackson, who specifically chose not to have a nanny for her toddler.

Janet Jackson has had a lot on her plate being a full-time mom to her two-and-a-half-year-old son but loves the job despite its sometimes chaoticness. 

The iconic singer talked about motherhood in a recent interview on Australia’s “Carrie & Tommy” and revealed why she chose not to have a nanny for her son, Eissa.

JANET JACKSON TALKS ABOUT BEING A MOM

The 53-year-old pointed out that her mother, Katherine Jackson, and her mother’s mother also took care of their children without having to hire a nanny. She admitted:

“I’m sure I will need someone in the future, come help here and there, but I don’t have anyone and I love it.”

Although the job is “very tiring” without having a second hand, she says, it is something that is fulfilling, especially when taking care of someone who means the world to her. 

She spoke of the realities of being a mom, including not having enough sleep when having a child and always being called or nagged.

However, she adds:

“I’ve always been a patient person, but there’s more patience that you have to have, and I never knew I was as patient as I really am. He’s the first and foremost in my life. Everything is about him. He comes first in my life.”

The singer arrived in Australia earlier this week and will be joined on stage by other performers, including 50 Cent, Jason Derulo, Sisqo, and The Black Eyed Peas.

Jackson previously talked about being a mother and said fairly the same details about her special relationship with Eissa.

EISSA SHOWS MUSICAL TALENT AT A YOUNG AGE

Jackson also shared that her Eissa is “incredibly musical” and already showing signs of copying famous dance moves from her brother, Michael Jackson.

She said:

“He does this thing that my brother did from ‘Doesn’t Really Care About Us,’ the march and the hand. He does a few things. He does the head. He loves ‘Smooth Criminal.’”

To add to his rockstar moves, Eissa also loves musical instruments, including the piano, guitar, drums, and violin, making music with them.

JACKSONS FAMILY AND CAREER

The singer shares her son with Qatari billionaire, Wissam, whom she met in 2010 and wed in 2012. They had Eissa in 2017 but separated shortly after.

Apart from her son, Jackson is still focused on her career with concerts coming up this month in Perth, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, and Sydney.

The singer arrived in Australia earlier this week and will be joined on stage by other performers, including 50 Cent, Jason Derulo, Sisqo, and The Black Eyed Peas.

The first show of RNB Fridays Live 2019 starts on November 8 and will carry on to November 9, 10, 15, and 16.
