Janet Jackson pregnant with first child

Mum’s the word for Janet Jackson.

The singer, who postponed her world tour last month to plan a family , is pregnant a couple of weeks before turning 50.

Entertainment Tonight was first to report the news, while a source told E! News that Jackson is in her second trimester of pregnancy and that she and husband Wissam Al Mana have been working with a fertility specialist.

Jackson’s camp hasn’t confirmed the pregnancy, but is it coincidence that her new single, released earlier this week, is called “Dammn Baby”?

Jackson performed at Chastain Park Amphitheatre in September. She 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.
