Miracles still happen: Janet Jackson pregnant with 1st child at 50yrs

nly two weeks before American pop sensation Janet Jackson turns 50‚ the star is apparently expecting her first child.

Janet‚ who will turn 50 years-old on May 16‚ shocked fans last month when she announced that she would be taking a break from her Unstoppable world tour to focus on building a family with her husband Wissam Al Mana.

The announcement raised speculation that the star may be pregnant with her first child and the rumours were confirmed by both ET Entertainment and E! News on Wednesday. According to E! News sources‚ Janet is in her second trimester of pregnancy.

Despite it being quite uncommon for woman near the age of 50 to fall pregnant‚ a source told E! Entertainment that Janet and her husband have been working with a fertility specialist for some time in hope of starting a family.

The couple‚ who secretly wed in 2012‚ have both refused to comment on the latest reports.
