Janet Jackson has announced that she will be delaying her tour, but contrary to reports that it’s due to illness, she has revealed in a video to fans that it’s because she’s ready to start a family with her husband, Wissam Al Mana!

“We’re in the second leg of the tour and there actually has been a sudden change,” Janet said in a new video posted to her Twitter account. “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.”

She added that it’s doctor’s orders that she rests up, but that she will continue the tour “as soon as I possibly can.” This will be the first child for Janet, who is 49. Watch the full video below.
