The Jackson family may be growing. Janet Jackson is rumored to be pregnant with her first child.
The 49-year-old “Together Again” singer’s pregnancy was reported by ET Online Wednesday. The news comes several days before her birthday on May 16. Jackson has yet to confirm the report, though she did hint she at the news last month.
In a Facebook video to her fans in April, Jackson announced she was postponing her "Unbreakable" world tour. “There actually has been a sudden change,” Jackson said. “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 is important that I do this now.” Jackson added that she was under doctor’s orders to “rest up,” but did not share if she was expecting.

This will be the first child for Jackson and her husband of four years, businessman Wissam Al Mana. The couple was last rumored to be bringing a child into their family via international adoption in 2013. “She now pretty much knows pregnant is not in the cards, so she’s been looking into adopting,” an insider told Us Weekly then, adding the pair was “quietly” researching the process.
While Janet does not have any children of her own, she does have plenty of family. From her 10 siblings, including the late Michael Jackson, she has 26 nieces and nephews.
