Janet’s brother Tito has shared some details about her new life as a mother with PEOPLE magazine. For more info on his new album and more on the Jackson family, check out the original article by Phill Boucher.
Here’s what they say about his little sister: “She’s doing all the baby talk to the baby and playing with him constantly — all that stuff,” brother Tito Jackson, who spoke with PEOPLE at the launch of his first solo album Tito Time at London’s Dstrkt nightclub, says of his sister’s relationship with 8-month-old Eissa. “She changes all the diapers — she does it all. She’s a real mother. She loves it. I asked her, ‘How are you getting along with this?’ and she said, ‘Tito, I love it.’ She just loves her baby,” adds the older Jackson sibling, 63. “She’s great at being a mother. It’s really great. I guess it sort of makes her feel complete.”
Janet, 51, gave birth to Eissa on Jan. 3. Three months later, she split from her husband — Qatari businessman Wissam Al Mana — before diving into summer rehearsals for her 56-city State of the World tour, kicking off Sept. 7 at the Cajundome in Lafayette, Louisiana. Just about the only stumbling baby block has come from big brother Tito himself, who found the sight of his youngest sibling holding a baby as something of a shock to the system. “It was really different for me to see her as a mother,” he tells PEOPLE with a large smile. “It’s her first baby and she has always been the baby in our family, so that was a little strange in itself!”
