Congratulations are in order for Janet Jackson who is reportedly pregnant with her first child — what exciting news! And considering Janet has wanted to start a family for a long time now, we could not be happier for the singer!
Janet Jackson, 49, is apparently with child — how exciting! The singer is pregnant, according to Entertainment Tonight, and this is SUCH great news considering we know that she has wanted children for a while. We can only imagine how thrilled she and her hubby, Wissam Al Mana, 41, must be, and we are incredibly happy that their wish of expanding their family is finally coming true!
This HUGE news is most likely why Janet postponed her last tour. It’s all starting to make sense now! And considering Janet’s age — she’ll be 50 later this month — this alleged baby is quite a miracle child! As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Janet had only a one percent chance of getting pregnant! Stream Janet’s music, completely unlimited and ad-free, RIGHT HERE.
“If a 49 year old woman were to try to get pregnant, even though IVF, the chance is less than on percent with her own genetics, meaning her own 49 year-old-egg,” Dr. Sherry Ross, an OB/GYN and Women’s Health Expert at Providence Satin John’s Health Care Center in Santa Monica, CA revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY last month. “But lets say she may have frozen her eggs 10 years ago when she was still in her 30’s, it’s possible this is her own genetics. Or the more likely option is that she may be using a donor egg.”
So it’s very likely that due to Janet’s age, she used a donor egg to conceive or perhaps she even froze her own eggs! But no matter how it happened, it’s certainly incredible news. As Janet told her fans after she announced her delayed tour, she’s been planning to expand her fam for quite a while now and it finally seemed like the perfect time. “My husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour,” Janet said. “Please, if you can, try to 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.” That quote pretty much says it all, right?
Us Weekly has also reported that Janet is expecting a baby, and HollywoodLife.com has reached out to Janet’s rep for more information. Please stay tuned for updates!
