“She’s doing great,” he said, asked how his sister is feeling. “She’s like a baby to me, a baby having a baby, but at the same time, she’s my little sister."

Janet Jackson postponed her world tour to plan a family . She  performed at Chastain Park Amphitheatre in September and was slated to return to the market with a show at Philips Arena in March, which was postponed because of surgery until Aug. 7.

That show was nixed with the rest of her 2016 tour.

Entertainment Tonight was first to report the news that Jackson was pregnant at 49, while a source told E! News that she and husband Wissam Al Mana had been working with a fertility specialist.
