One of the most exciting and challenging things about being a first time mom is probably figuring out what name your child will go by for the rest of their life.

Janet Jackson has reached that time in her pregnancy. According to reports, Ms. Jackson plans to name her son after her late brothers Michael and Brandon Jackson. A source says that the baby’s name will be “Michael Brandon,” honoring both the King of Pop and Marlon’s twin brother, Brandon, who died at birth.

An insider told reporters, “Janet will honor both Michael and Brandon. It’s something that her husband, Wissam Al Mana, agreed to when she got pregnant.” The insider says that Janet’s husband Wissam, a “traditional Muslim who believes the man makes all of the decisions and the wife must abide by them,” reportedly gave “permission” for Jackson to name the boy after her brothers, saying, “Michael Brandon will be in the middle. The child will have a name given by Wissam, and will take Wissam’s last name.”

No date has been confirmed for Janet Jackson’s due date, but judging by her bulging baby bump, she doesn’t have that far to go.
