Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., known as Prince Michael Jackson Jr., was born on February 13, 1997 shortly after 1 am in Cedar-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles.
His mother Debbie talks about his birth:
"Words can't describe how I feel... I have been blessed beyond comprehension and I will work tirelessly at being the best father that I can possibly be. I appreciate that my fans are elated, but I hope that everyone respects the privacy Debbie and I want and need for our son. I grew up in a fish bowl and will not allow that to happen to my child. Please respect our wishes and give my son his privacy."
Michael Jackson´s statement after the birth of his first child
"I sold pictures [of baby Prince] to the National Enquirer and other European tabloids, because there was a race. There were some illegal pictures out. Illegally somebody had taken picture of a baby. Millions of dollars, and said ‘Here's Michael's son´. […] So, I took the pictures of the baby and said they're forcing me to get his pictures. There's helicopters flying above us, flying over my house, flying over the hospital. Machines and satellites all over, even the hospital said, 'Michael we've had every kind of celebrity here, we've never had anything like this. This is unbelievable.' And so I said ‘Here, take it.’ I gave the money to charity. […] [I did that to get them off my back]. Now they want to do it again and I don't want to. Maybe I don't want to show him to the world like that. I want him to have some space where he can go to school. I don't want him to be called Wacko Jacko. That's not nice, they call the father that. It's not nice, right?”
