Janet Jackson and her husband Wissam Al Mana are expecting their first child together! This news was announced just a month after the superstar revealed she was putting her world tour on hold because she wanted to start a family with her husband.
Janet stated to her fans, “On August 31st, as you probably know, I launched the Unbreakable World Tour…First, I just want to thank all of the fans for coming out and seeing the show. Thank you so much, you guys made it so enjoyable for me each and every night. My husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour…Please if you can 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.”
Her fans were confused on if she was pregnant, wanting to get pregnant or adopting.
Jackson is allegedly in her second trimester of pregnancy, and she and her husband have reportedly been talking to different fertility specialists. Her rep has yet to make a comment on the pregnancy, ET reported the news first.
Janet is 49-years-old, and it’s harder for women her age to get pregnant naturally. Most women need help with an IVF, using eggs that were frozen during their younger years, donor eggs from young women, or embryos made from donor eggs. Janet’s billionaire husband is 41-years-old!
It is great that Janet can start her family that she’s always wanted with her husband. Although her fans were upset when they found out the tour was put on hold, we’re sure they will understand why, now.
Congrats Janet and Wissam!
