The baby news comes after the 49-year-old singer — who will turn 50 on May 16 — announced last month that she will be postponing her tour to start a family with husband Wissam Al Mana.
“We’re in the second leg of the tour and there actually has been a sudden change,” Jackson explained in a video posted to Twitter on April 6. “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.”
The fiercely private star secretly married billionaire businessman Wissam Al Mana in 2012, but didn’t confirm the union until 2013. The couple began dating in the summer of 2010.
