Ms. Jackson has kept an extremely low profile since postponing the European leg of her tour this past spring. "We're in the second leg of the tour, and there actually has been a sudden change," Jackson said in a statement at the time. "I thought it was important that you be the first to know.

Though Janet never said she was carrying her first child with husband Wissam Al Mana, 41, two of Janet's brothers, Tito and Jermaine, confirmed the news for her in two separate interviews.
"Janet is very well pregnant, she's doing very well, she's taking it easy," Tito told Andy Cohen in June. "She's hoping for a healthy baby. She don't know what she's gonna have, a boy or girl."
"Janet's my baby... She's pregnant," Jermaine told EXTRA in May. "She's like a baby to me, a baby having a baby, but at the same time, she's my little sister. I'm an uncle again, which I'm very proud of. I wish them both the best. If they need any baby skills, I'm the best at it 'cause they all say I have the most kids."
