‘Of course, when I’m working someone watches him, but it’s my baby and me,’ Janet added.
The five-time Grammy Award-winner, who shares Eissa with ex-husband, Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana, went on to tell Stellar that fame isn’t for everybody.
‘You really have to be thick-skinned for this. You can really go in the wrong direction, there’s so much temptation, all kinds of crazy things.’
More than 100 of the UK’s biggest stars came together at the Daily Mirror Pride of Britain Awards to honour the nation’s unsung heroes on the landmark 20th anniversary of the event.
The awards recognise and celebrate ordinary people up and down the country doing extraordinary things.
