It's been almost two months since Janet Jackson gave birth to her first child. And appearing on Tuesday's Good Morning Britain, her older brothers Tito and Jackie Jackson discussed the newest addition to their family, describing little Eissa Al Mana as "beautiful". The famous pair are currently preparing for The Jacksons' 50th anniversary world tour, and Jackie could not help but gush over his new nephew. "Janet had a beautiful baby boy," he told show hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid via video link. "It's all good. Everyone's fine. Everything's great."

Since Janet welcomed her baby boy with her billionaire businessman husband Wissam Al Mana in January, the 50-year-old singer has been busy keeping a low profile. Shortly after the birth, a rep for the couple confirmed the news to HELLO! in a statement. "Janet Jackson and husband Wissam Al Mana are thrilled to welcome their new son Eissa Al Mana into the world," it read. "Janet had a stress-free, healthy delivery and is resting comfortably." Janet and Wissam tied the knot in a secret ceremony in 2012, but they didn't confirm the news until early the following year.

Meanwhile, when asked about how they feel about the next generation of Jacksons – including the late Michael Jackson's daughter Paris - getting into showbiz, Jackie explained: "I guess it's in their blood. They watched us growing up when they were young. They love the business. That's what they want to do, so go ahead and do it. That's how we look at it."

"There's a lot of talent in the family," added Tito. "We have a lot of singers and actors and actresses so you can’t stop a person's dreams. They see their aunts and uncles doing what they do - usually we try and be like our parents and siblings and that's what they do. I just tell them to keep their head on straight and use good judgement. That's the important thing." The surviving members of The Jacksons will hit the road on their upcoming world tour in support of their 50th anniversary this summer.
