It is never too late to begin building a family, and that is exactly the case for Janet Jackson. The 49-year-old singer is going to be a mom. Just shy of her 50th birthday, the pop icon is reportedly pregnant with her first child, a source tells ET.
While there has been no official announcement from Jackson, it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise. Just last month, the singer postponed her “Unbreakable World Tour” to start a family with husband Wissam Al Mana.
“I thought it was important that you would be the first to know my husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour,” she told fans. “Please, if you can try to 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 to tour as soon as I possibly can.”
Jackson, who turns 50 later this month on May 16, secretly wed 41-year-old entrepreneur Wissam Al Mana back in 2012 and have both remained outside of the limelight.
