From People’s magazine:
Janet Jackson is one glowing mom-to-be.
The 50-year-old singer is officially confirming her pregnancy and showing off her growing baby bump exclusively with PEOPLE.
“We thank God for our blessing,” says the star.
After Jackson announced in April she was postponing her Unbreakable World Tour in May to focus on “planning” a family with her husband Wissam Al Mana, sources confirmed to PEOPLE the star was expecting her first child.
The singer was on an ice-cream run with husband Wissam Al Mana.
While Janet, 50, has yet to officially announce the pregnancy, her brother Jermaine confirmed the baby news to “Extra” in May.
Jermaine said, “Janet’s my baby… She’s pregnant,” adding, “She’s like a baby to me, a baby having a baby, but at the same time, she’s my little sister. I’m an uncle again, which I’m very proud of. I wish them both the best. If they need any baby skills, I’m the best at it ’cause they all say I have the most kids.”
When asked how she was feeling, Jermaine shared, “She’s doing great.”
Janet postponed the European leg of her Unbreakable tour in April, revealing in a video that she and her husband were planning their family, but never specifically said she was with child.
Janet Jackson’s longtime producer Jimmy Jam is putting his bid in early for a very important position in her first child’s life: Godfather. HipHollywood caught up with the hit-making producer, and found out that Jackson hasn’t discussed it with him yet, but he certainly wants the job.
“I don’t know yet, I’m going to put in my application,” said Jimmy while on the carpet for the HollyRod Foundation’s 18th Annual DesignCare Gala. “I’m definitely Uncle Juices. She calls me Juices, so I’m Uncle Juices, no matter what.”
Good thing for Jimmy, who, along with Terry Lewis, produced several of Jackson’s platinum albums, and Janet is actually Godmother to his oldest son. “So, maybe a little exchange or something,” he joked. “We will see.”
Jimmy also updated us on how Jackson is handling her first pregnancy. “She’s wonderful. I talked to her yesterday. She’s doing absolutely wonderful, and is happy.”
Back in May, Jackson announced that she would have to postpone the second leg of her “Unbreakable Tour” because she was pregnant with her first child. Her brother Tito Jackson recently cleared rumors that she was using a surrogate, telling Anderson Cooper, “She’s taking it easy … protecting her health.”
We the staff at janet-fan.com would love to wish the beautiful Janet Jackson a very happy birthday!! We hope that your day is full with happiness, love, and joy and May god bless you with many more birthdays to come, We love you queen!! Enjoy your day!
Janet Jackson is pregnant with her first child, just weeks before her 50th birthday, Entertainment Tonight reported Wednesday. The news comes a month after Jackson announced she would postpone her tour to “focus on her family” with husband Wissam Al Mana.
Jackson’s initial postponement in early April–in which she said she was under doctor’s orders to rest–led fans to worry that she was dealing with something scarier, such as cancer. Clearly, this news is much better to hear. There’s been no official word yet from the Jackson camp on the pregnancy, but that shouldn’t stop us from picking out baby names should it?
Janet Jackson will executive produce the story of 1920’s New York City mobster, Queenie – the first and only woman gangster during the prohibition, set against the backdrop of The Cotton Club. Born Stephanie St. Clair (1886–1969), Queenie (photo above) was a mob boss who ran numerous criminal enterprises in Harlem, NYC in the early part of the 20th century. She even bumped heads with the then Italian mafia, and managed to stay entirely independent. In Bill Duke’s gangland crime drama “Hoodlum” (1997) she was played by Cicely Tyson, as some of you might recall. Kenny Leon is attached to direct the film.
Live Nation says that tickets will be honored or refunds offered for Janet Jackson’s postponed concert dates.
Janet Jackson recently announced that she’s postponing dates on her Unbreakable Tour, but fans hopefully won’t have to wait too long to see her live.
Just a couple days after the singer cited plans to start a family with her husband, Wissam Al Mana, as the reason for the tour postponement, Live Nation released a statement (via Us Weekly): “The Janet Jackson Unbreakable Tour in North America will be postponed until 2017. New dates will be announced at a later time, and tickets will be honored for the rescheduled dates. Refunds are also available at the point of purchase. Stay tuned to JanetJackson.com and LiveNation.com for further info.”
Jackson posted a link to the news article on social media, confirming the report.
“We’re in the second leg of the tour and there actually has been a sudden change. I thought it was important that you be the first to know,” Jackson had previously said in a video posted on Twitter. “My husband and I are planning our family. I’m gonna have to delay the tour. Please if you can try and understand that it’s important that I do this now. I have to rest up, doctor’s orders.”
“I can’t wait for us to get started again,” she added.
