UPDATE: Janet Jackson and Wissam Al Mana welcomed son Eissa Al Mana. The couple have since separated and Janet is back on tour. She is embracing motherhood. Brother, Tito said she does it all including changing all the diapers.
Looks like Janet Jackson won’t be going on tour any time in the near future. It is being reported that the first time mom-to-be has experienced pregnancy complications and has been ordered on bedrest by her doctor until her baby is born. It is said that she underwent some form of fertility treatments. She will deliver her baby after age 50 which makes her pregnancy a high risk pregnancy. Janet married her 41 year old husband, Wissam Al Mana, secretly in 2012. This will be their first child together.
According to sources, Janet’s mother, Katherine, encouraged her daughter to try to have a baby with her new husband before she was unable to do so. It’s been no secret that Janet wanted to be a mother and has mentioned in the past her intentions to have children. News has it that Katherine is super excited that all of her children have now or will soon be giving her a grandchild. This will be her 28th time at being a grandmother. Katherine is 86.
Janet shared her news to the world on social media when she had to cancel her “Unbreakable” world tour, “”We’re in the second leg of the tour and there actually has been a sudden change. I thought it was important that you would be the first to know,” she said in a Facebook video post. “My husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour.” This was announced in April. We’ve not heard when Janet’s new arrival is expected.
