The Rhythm Nation singer also shielded herself from the rays in a long-sleeved black maxi-dress, before finishing her chic ensemble with stylish, over-sized shades.

The first-time mother appeared to be enjoying every second of motherhood, with Janet tenderly holding on to Eissa and frequently adjusting his cap.

Meanwhile, it was recently claimed that Janet has rebuilt her relationship with her ex Jermaine Dupri.

The Together Again singer underwent a difficult split from husband Wissam Al Mana in April this year, and has turned to the hip-hop star for comfort and support.

A source told E! News that she and Jermaine are, ‘consistently in contact,’ and are, ‘getting close again.’

Janet, 51, and record producer Jermaine, 45, dated for seven years until their split in 2009.

Janet is said to be seeking full custody of her son, after her brother Randy accused Wissam of being verbally abusive to her during their relationship.

‘It was quite an abusive situation,’ Randy, 61, claimed.

‘It came on later in the relationship, verbal abuse and being [made to feel like] a prisoner in her own home. No pregnant woman needs to go through being called a bitch everyday. There were things like that. That’s what she went through.’

A source said in September that [news of] verbal abuse allegations months after their separation and impending divorce are shocking, but not surprising.

‘Janet is great at managing her business and career, but she is not as smart when it comes to affairs of the heart.’
