“Dammn Baby”: Janet Jackson Reportedly Is Expecting Her First Child


Photo by Johnny Nunez/BET/Getty Images for BETJanet Jackson may have reason to celebrate this Mother’s Day. According to numerous reports, the 49-year-old singer is pregnant with her first child.

The news comes after Janet postponed her tour last month, explaining that she was planning 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,” Janet said in a video posted to Twitter 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.”

She added, “Please, if you could try and understand that it’s important that I do this now. 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.”

Janet — who turns 50 on May 16 — and Wissam have been married since 2012. It’s the singer’s third marriage. She has yet to confirm the pregnancy.
