A source is confirming to Entertainment Tonight that the rumors are true – Janet Jackson is pregnant with her first child, just days before her 50th birthday on May 16.
The singer announced last month that she was 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.”
“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.”
