Janet Jackson’s Husband

Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony. Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favorite children’s charities. We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy. With love, Wissam and Janet.”
Janet Jackson’s Kid
If you are wondering things like, “Does Janet Jackson have children?” or “How many kids does Janet Jackson have?”, then you should know that this will be her first child! The news about her pregnancy came out right before Janet Jackson’s birthday on May 16. Initially, she did not want to have kids due to her growing career, stating, “Yes, at some point. I’d like to [have children]. But my view is that if it’s God’s plan for me to have children then it’s going to happen. I’m not panicking. It would be very, very sweet if I did have children. The icing on the cake. And I like sweet things. But it doesn’t feel essential.”

Janet Jackson is pregnant with her first child and according to a statement from Jackson herself, that is the reason why she canceled her Unbreakable Tour, as her doctors have advised her rest. She told her fans, “We’re in the second leg of the tour and there actually has been a sudden change. 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. 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.”
