After months of speculation, Janet Jackson has finally confirmed her pregnancy at 50 years old. This is the first time Janet will be conceiving a child.
The singer has been telling her fans of her plans to build a family with her husband, businessman Wissam Al Mana. In the recent picture released by People, Janet showed off her baby bump while wearing a white dress.
“We thank God for our blessing,” she told the magazine.
The singer also asked for everyone’s understanding in her situation. “Please, if you could try and understand that it’s important that I do this now. I have to rest up, doctor’s orders,” she says.
Rest assured she’ll be back to continue the tour as soon as she can.
Janet’s husband on the other hand, will continue to work in his businesses. The 41-year old Qatari business tycoon will surely be able to provide his future family with anything because of his vast fortune. Wissam’s family owns a large fashion business portfolio, including brands such as Dolce & Gabbana, Hermes, Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen, and Giorio Armani. His family also owns real estate holdings in Dubai, Bahrain, and Kuwait.
The couple have been married in a quiet and private ceremony in 2012.
