Jermaine Jackson confirms sister Janet's pregnancy


Janet Jackson's rumoured pregnancy has apparently been confirmed by her big brother.

The chart-topper sparked baby rumours after she posted a video online in April, announcing that she was delaying her Unbreakable tour because she and her husband were planning their family.

Janet, 49, didn't say that she was pregnant but said there had been a "sudden change" to the second leg of her tour.

Her brother Jermaine Jackson has now confirmed to People magazine that Janet is expecting.

He said: "My sister Janet is my baby. She is fine but she's having a baby. A baby having a baby. We look at her like our little baby and now she's grown and having a baby.

"I'm proud to be an uncle and I can't wait to see how this baby is going to look."

Jermaine, 61, said his younger sister would make a great mum.

"She'll be a great mother because she is very tough, very strict," he said.

Janet, who married businessman Wissam Al Mana in 2012, turns 50 this month.
