Janet had a stress-free healthy delivery and is resting comfortably,” her rep says in a statement.Jackson married the Qatari businessman Al Mana in 2012, and speculations of her pregnancy began when the singer postponed her Unbreakable World Tour and said in a video on Twitter that she and her husband are going to focus on their family.
“We’re in the second leg of the tour, and there actually has been a sudden change. I thought it was important that you be the first to know. My husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour,” Jackson said in the clip. Even though the singer was quiet about her pregnancy, she was spotted running errands for baby supplies at London’s Back in Action furniture store in September and while she was out and about Jackson kep her baby bump under wraps. Soon after the sighting, a source close to the Jackson family stated that she was eager to become a mother for the first time. “She is super excited about her pregnancy and is doing extremely well,” the source said in September. The singer’s older brother Jermaine Jackson has also shared details of his younger sister’s pregnancy journey. “She is going to be a great mother because she is a very tough, and strict, but if you need any parenting skills, let me know.” Jermaine said.
