Janet Jackson Pregnant With Her First Child At Age 50

Janet Jackson is said to be pregnant with her first child.

A source shared the news to Entertainment Tonight, but the singer is yet to publicly confirm it.

The baby news comes after the 49-year-old singer — who will turn 50 on May 16 — announced last month that she will be postponing her tour 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,” Jackson explained in 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.”

Jackson secretly wed Al Mana, 41, in 2012, but didn’t confirm the news until early 2013. This is the singer’s third marriage.

In 2008, ET spoke with Jackson about whether she and her then-boyfriend, Jermaine Dupri, would be open to having kids. “I would love to have children of our own, but we also would love to adopt,” she said. “So, we’ll see what happens. It’ll happen someday.”

She had told the interviewer that she would “the greatest mother in the world,” Jackson responded, “Well, I hope so. People say that, but I hope so.”
