Janet Jackson is said to be pregnant with her first child at almost 50′
Janet Jackson is said to be pregnant with her first child at almost 50′.
A source shared the news to Entertainment Tonight, but the singer is yet to publicly confirm it.
The star – who turns 50 on May 16 – postponed her Unbreakable tour last month to start a family with husband Wissam Al Mana.
‘We’re in the second leg of the tour and there actually has been a sudden change,’ she told her fans via a video posted to Twitter on April 6.
‘I thought it was important that you be the first to know. My husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour.’
‘Please, if you could try and understand that it’s important that I do this now,’ Jackson asked of her fans.
‘I have to rest up, doctor’s orders. But I have not forgotten about you. I will continue the tour as soon as I possibly can.’
The news followed two previous postponed dates.
On Christmas Eve, she announced a delay in her North American tour, saying that she needed an urgent operation, and gave no other clarification other than to deny rumors she had cancer.
She later called off a European tour and had been due to resume performances on May 14 in Las Vegas.
Jackson secretly married retailing tycoon Al Mana, 41, in 2012, but didn’t confirm they’d wed until early 2013.
Speaking out that year after rumours they were planning an ‘extravagant wedding,’ Jackson said: ‘Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony. Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favourite children’s charities.’
The singer has been married three times.
Jackson last year released Unbreakable, her first album since the 2009 death of her brother, Michael Jackson aged 50.
