Janet Jackson is pregnant with her first child at 49

WASHINGTON — The little sister of the legendary Jackson family is having a baby.

Proving it’s never too late to start a family, Janet Jackson, now 49, is pregnant with her first child, according to Entertainment Tonight, which broke the story on Wednesday.  She turns 50 on May 16.

The singer, who rocked the Billboard Charts in the 1980s and 90s with break-out albums like “Control” and “Rhythm Nation,” said in April that she was postponing her current tour at the urging of her doctor, as she was “family planning,” but did not confirm anything more.

Jackson has mentioned her desire to have children in the past.  She secretly wed Al Mana, 41, in 2012, but didn’t confirm the news until early 2013, according to ET. This is the singer’s third marriage.
