Janet Jackson is expecting her first child without the help of a surrogate, in case you were wondering. The superstar’s brother confirmed her pregnancy with PEOPLE earlier this week.
She’s doing very well. She’s taking it easy,” he said. “As you know, she is off tour, protecting her health.” While Tito didn’t give details surrounding Janet’s due date, he did confirm that the singer is carrying her own child and not using the services of a surrogate.
Many began to speculate that Janet was preparing for pregnancy in April when the singer canceled the second part of her tour. “We’re in the second leg of the tour and there actually has been a sudden change,” she told YouTube fans. “My husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour.” Janet didn’t give details about their plans but many fans assumed that the singer was undergoing In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) treatment.
The bundle of joy will be Janet Jackson’s first child with her husband, Al Mana. The couple tied the marital knot in 2012.
