Yet as one of her songs puts it so well “that’s the way love goes”. About 30 days after her Unbreakable World Tour, she announced that she was taking a break to plan a family with her hubby dearest.
Janet also said that she needed some rest and relaxation although she wouldn’t specify the details regarding her exhaustion from her hectic show business schedule.
She never said it explicitly that she was going to conceive a baby though. What remained unclear was whether she and Al Mana would plan on trying to have a baby or just adopt a little tyke.
Janet's pregnancy news was first reported by ET.
Currently, Janet is in her second trimester of pregnancy. She and her husband had been working in tandem with a fertility expert regarding the precarious pregnancy.
The representatives of the starlet have not made any comments on the pregnancy. Janet however leaked the news and now it is common knowledge.
Usually, women the age of Janet Jackson have a hell of a tough time getting preggers. The fact of the matter is that natural childbirth is simply next to impossible at this age.
Furthermore, those who do manage to conceive often do so through IVF. The eggs are often their own that were frozen and preserved a long time ago. Or they could be from donor women that are much younger than them. Also embryos made from donor eggs are employed for the complex procedure.
Janet’s husband Al Mana is a billionaire businessman from Qatar. The two wed four years back. Janet cancelled her tour recently, giving the reason that she had to be operated upon by the doctors.
There were rumors circulating that she may have cancer. However, she has denied that any such thing has happened to her. So our best bet is that it is a baby she is expecting.
The last full-fledged concert that Janet arranged was in Dubai. After that she took a hiatus to unwind and ease her mind. In 2009, she called it quits with her boyfriend Jermaine Dupri.
