Janet Jackson is reportedly pregnant with her first child.

The singer, who will turn 50 in two weeks, is expecting, a source confirmed to Entertainment Tonight.

Jackson announced in April that she was putting the second leg of her world tour on hold so that she could focus on starting a family with her husband, Wissam Al Mana.

The singer posted a video to her fans on her Twitter account to let them know about her plans.


“We’re in the second leg of the tour and there actually has been a sudden change,” Jackson said. “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,” she added. “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.”

No word yet on how far along the pop-singer is.
