Jackson married Qatari businessman Al Mana in 2012, and speculation about her pregnancy surfaced last April when she postponed her “Unbreakable” tour because she was planning to start a family.

“My husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour,” the singer explained in a Facebook video message on 6 April.

“Please, if you can try and 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 the tour as soon as I possibly can,” she added.
