It’s less than two weeks before she celebrates her 50th birthday, but an insider tells Entertainment Tonight that Janet Jackson is pregnant with her first child!

The singer had announced last month that she planned to postpone her tour in order to start a family with her husband, 41-year-old Wissam Al Mana, whom she married in 2012.

‘We’re in the second leg of the tour and there actually has been a sudden change,’ she explained in a video posted to Twitter. ‘I thought it was important that you be the first to know. My husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour.’

‘Please, if you could try and understand that it’s important that I do this now,’ the sister of the late Michael Jackson added. ‘I have to rest up, doctor’s orders. But I have not forgotten about you. I will continue the tour as soon as I possibly can.’

There is no news on how far along she is yet, but Janet has always expressed that she’d love to have children one day – even saying she may adopt should she not be able to conceive naturally.

Congratulations Janet and Wissam!
