Janet Jackson has some baby news: She’s dropped a video for her new single “Dammn Baby.”
But that’s not the only chatter surrounding the superstar that has the Internet buzzing — several outlets have reported that Jackson is expecting her first child.
Jackson, who turns 50 on May 16, has not confirmed the reports or even addressed them. CNN has reached out to reps for the singer.
In April, Jackson announced she was halting the second leg of her “Unbreakable” world tour for the second time as she and her husband worked on a family.
“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 told fans in a video released on Twitter. “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.”
Jackson quietly married Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana in 2012 and the couple has been intensely private about their relationship.
In late December, Jackson attributed a tour delay to her need to recover from an unspecified surgery. Talk swirled then that she was suffering from cancer, but she quickly shot those rumors down.
“The rumors are untrue,” Jackson said at the time in a video message. “I do not have cancer. I am recovering.”
Speculation about a possible medical condition was once again rampant when Jackson postponed her tour the second time, especially as she appeared to be lying down in the video when she announced that she and her husband were planning a family.
Late Wednesday, Jackson tweeted her music video and said, “It’s all about Love… #DammnBaby.”
