Janet Jackson Is Pregnant With Her First Child At 49

Janet Jackson has had a bit of a rough time lately, suffering several undisclosed health issues over the past year, and most recently postponing her first world tour in roughly a decade. Well, now it seems there’s an explanation for all this (well, at least her most recent issues): Janet and partner Wissam al Mana are expecting their first child together!

For reference, Janet is 49, which is nuts — pregnancy is tough on a woman of any age, but I can’t imagine it’d be very fun at 49, especially considering she’ll be nearly 70 by the time the kid graduates from high school (though frankly, if her partner is her age, the latter will be a concern for him, too). Anyway, at least she’s filthy rich and should have no problem getting help when/if she needs it, and the kid will be set up for life.
