What have you done so far in 2017? Gone to the gym once and cried at your desk twice? Just me? Well, Janet Jackson had a baby. At age 50, which is pretty damn impressive of her (and IVF technologies, probably). She can probably take the rest of 2017 off.

The music icon and her husband Wissam Al Mana welcomed a baby boy yesterday, an unnamed source confirmed to US Weekly. "Janet had a healthy baby boy today," said the source. "They are thrilled."

I don't always trust an unnamed source. But this story checks out. Nine months ago, Jackson suggested in a not-so-subtle tweet that she was pregnant, and confirmed her pregnancy in October (we all had to pretend to be surprised).

The baby's name is Eissa. Eissa Al Mana. That's a name for fame right there.

Jackson also had a "stress free" delivery, at least according to her rep. "Janet had a stress free healthy delivery and is resting comfortably," said a statement from her rep. Though I believe she's resting comfortable, I'm slightly more suspicious about the "stress free" part. Because from what I've heard, having a baby is no joyride.

But hey, if anyone is going to pop out a baby at age 50 and be stress free about it, it's Janet Jackson. The OG of nasty women.
