“Michael Brandon!” Janet Jackson Reveals Name of Her Child–If It’s A Boy!

When you are Janet Jackson there seems to be no wrong you can do. Fans might have been upset that she canceled her tour and announced she was starting a family, but they seem to have gotten over it with the announcement she was pregnant and her recent picture in  showcasing her baby bump and weight gain!

Still, motherhood looks great on her and we could not be happier for Janet Jackson and her billionaire husband, Wissam Al Mana as they expect their first bundle of joy.

The gender of the baby has not been revealed, but apparently the couple has picked out a set of special names for the child if it’s a boy!

RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively that the pop diva, 50, will name her child “Michael Brandon” — after the late King of Pop and her brother Marlon’s twin, Brandon, who died at birth.

“Janet will honor both Michael and Brandon,” a family insider revealed. “It’s something that her husband, Wissam Al Mana, agreed to when she got pregnant.”

According to another source, billionaire businessman Wissam is a “traditional Muslim who believes the man makes all of the decisions and the wife must abide by them.”

Despite that, Wissam granted “permission” for the “Control” singer to honor her brothers, the source said.

The baby, due in late December, will still have a Muslim first and last name, said a Jackson family insider.

“Michael Brandon will be in the middle,” the source dished. “The child will have a name given by Wissam, and will take Wissam’s last name.”

We have to surmise that the baby is a boy with all of this talk! If they did not know they surely would have released some girl names as well. Either way we really hope she has a very healthy baby! Congrats again Janet!
