“We thank God for our blessing,” Jackson told the gossip mag posing for a photo in an all-white ensemble that highlighted her precious bump. The “Dammn Baby” singer announced back in May that she was postponing her “Unbreakable” world tour to focus on family planning with her billionaire husband Wissam Al Mana, 41.
“Please, if you could try and understand that it’s important that I do this now,” Jackson said in a video she posted online. “I have to rest up, doctor’s orders. But I have not forgotten about you. I will continue the tour as soon as I possibly can.”
In the following weeks, multiple sources reported that she was expecting her first child, but Jackson never confirmed or denied the rumors.
The chances of getting pregnant over the age of 40 are increasingly low. Experts say the star had a 1% chance of becoming pregnant and it is unclear how she and Al Mana went about the pregnancy.
The couple wed secretly in 2012 and Jackson didn’t confirm the news until 2013. This is the “Rhythm Nation” singer’s third marriage.
