With just a few days short of Mother’s Day and two week shy of her 50th birthday, Janet Jackson is reportedly going to be a mom. While there has been no official announcement from the pop icon, the news shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise after the singer postponed her “Unbreakable World Tour” to start a family with husband Wissam Al Mana.

“I thought it was important that you would be the first to know my husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour,” she told fans. “Please, if you can try to understand that it’s important that I do this now. I have to rest up, doctor’s orders. But I have not forgotten about you. I will continue to tour as soon as I possibly can.”

Jackson secretly wed Al Mana in 2012, making it her third marriage to the 41-year-old entrepreneur.

In the meantime, the mom-to-be is prepping a video release for “Dammn Baby,” a single off her 2015 comeback album Unbreakable.
