Janet Jackson is pregnant with her first child just 2 weeks before her 50th birthday.

Jackson is thrilled to be pregnant with her first child with husband Wissam Al Mana’s (see video).

Janet abruptly cancelled her world tour in April 2016 after denying rumors she was battling throat cancer.

“My husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour,” Janet said on Twitter. “I have to rest up, doctor’s orders. I will continue the tour as soon as I possibly can.”

Jackson previously said she’d love to adopt.

“I would love to have children of our own, but we also would love to adopt,” Janet said in 2008.

Janet secretly married billionaire businessman Wissam Al Mana in 2012. She kicked off her sold-out world tour in August 2015 to trumpet her new album, Unbreakable, which has received glowing reviews.

In the artwork for “Unbreakable,” Janet looked gorgeous and healthy following her recent 60-pound weight loss.

The 5-foot-4 Janet, who once topped the scales at over 180 pounds, lost weight on a low glycemic index diet, which is based on managing blood sugar levels, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.

Jackson is a self-professed emotional overeater, who binged when she was unhappy, bored or anxious, she said in her book True You: A Journey to Finding and Loving Yourself.

“I think people really connect with the idea of someone who has gained and lost weight in this very public way, and also someone who’s an emotional eater,” Janet wrote. “Chocolate, cake, caramel apples—there aren’t many things I don’t love.”

In recent years, Janet said she was happy with her body and her improved health following her 60 pound weight loss.

“I honestly don’t even know what size I am,” said Jackson. “Now it’s about looking in the mirror and saying, ‘I feel good. I feel healthy.’ ”

Janet recently released a compilation of all her hit songs on her album, Janet Jackson: Number Ones, and dropped her 11th studio album, Unbreakable, in October 2015.
