Jimmy Jam Wants To Be Godfather Of Janet Jackson’s 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.”
Janet Jackson Is Pregnant With Her First Child
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?
