“Faith is ageless!”
Janet Jackson confirmed her pregnancy in a magazine photo shared exclusively by People magazine. The singing superstar turned 50 in May after announcing in a video message to fans the month before, she would be taking time off from her tour to start a family.
And just what are the feelings of the new mom-to-be?
“We thank God for our blessing,” says Janet.
The youngest of the Jackson family has achieved much in her musical and acting career but family she put off until now. She eloped with singer James DeBarge in her teens. The marriage was brief. Her secret union with backup dancer Renee Elizondo in 1991 was not made public until years later but they would later divorce in 2000. Janet dated Atlanta-based producer Jermaine Dupri for a number of years before meeting and marrying businessman Wissam Al Mana. This will be the couple’s first child.
Janet looks absolutely beautiful and defies the societal standards for women to have children past the age of 40. We’re wishing the duo the best as they soon welcome their little one.
Share if you’ve experienced the joys of motherhood past 45? We would love to hear from you.
