The singer previously postponed her world tour to take time to prepare for the birth of her son with her estranged husband Wissam Al Mana.

“We’re in the second leg of the tour and there actually has been a sudden change. 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,” she said in a video to fans in April 2016.

Three months after Eissa’s birth, reports emerged in April that Jackson was separating from Al Mana.

In May, Jackson confirmed she and her husband were separated.

“We are in court and the rest is in God's hands,” she said in a video message to fans.

In the same video, she announced she is returning to touring. 

“I’m continuing my tour as I promised. I'm so excited,” Jackson said.

The State of the World Tour begins Sept. 7.
