It’s been seven years since Michael Jackson passed away, but his sister Janet Jackson does not want to let his legacy fade away.
According to E! News, the expectant mother plans to pay tribute to the King of Pop with her unborn child’s name. A source says the baby’s name will “have something to do with Michael Jackson.”
Jackson, 50, and her husband Wissam Al Mana are currently expecting their first child. “She is due very, very soon,” said a source, adding that the singer “can’t wait to have the baby.”
Amid health concerns about her age and touring schedule, the insider assures that doctors have said Jackson is “doing well” and have told her to “just take it easy.” In April, Jackson revealed she would be putting her “Unbreakable” tour on hold to get ready for the baby.
“My husband and I are planning a family, so I’m gonna have to delay the tour,” Jackson said in video. “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 can.”
Like her brother Michael, Jackson is known for keeping her private life under wraps and has said very little about the pregnancy, including whether she’s expecting a boy or girl. However, the singer did address the pregnancy in October when she told People, “We thank God for our blessing.”
Her brother, Tito Jackson, has also commented on the pregnancy, revealing that the couple doesn’t know if they’re expecting a boy or a girl and are only “hoping for a healthy baby.” Tito also shut down rumors that a surrogate was carrying the couple’s child, saying Janet was doing “very pregnant.”
