Janet Jackson Postpones Tour to Start Family

Is there a baby Janet Jackson on the way?? Possibly, according to the singer’s latest message to fans. Posting a video to all of her social media sites, Janet announced that she was putting a halt on the rest of her Unbreakable tour stops to plan a family with her husband sharing through her brilliant smile, “My husband and I are planning our family, so I'm going to have to delay the tour” she continues, "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 possibly can." If Jackson is indeed expecting, via the old-fashioned way or a surrogate, it will be the first child for the 49-year old superstar (who is turning 50 next month) and her 41-year old husband, Wissam Al Mana.

The pop goddess’ Unbreakable world tour started in August of last year and in the short span of time since has seen numerous shows postponed or full-out canceled due to nondescript medical issues. Earlier this year, Jackson’s refusal to clarify exactly what she was getting surgery for fueled rumors that she was battling throat cancer – a rumor Jackson denied via Instagram. Though ticket holders may have at first been upset about the cancellation, knowing that Janet may be having her first child soon is more exciting and important than seeing the star live; it will be thrilling to see Janet as a new mom and having more babies added to the Jackson dynasty!
