Sources tell reports the “Rhythm Nation” singer is expecting a baby with husband Wissam Al Mana, less than two weeks before the singer celebrates her 50th birthday.

She added she had to "rest up—doctor's orders" but did not specify if she was expecting a child, if she and Al Mana were trying to conceive or if they planned on adopting.
Janet is in her second trimester of pregnancy and that she and Al Mana have been working with a fertility specialist for a while.
It is extremely rare for women Janet's age to become pregnant naturally. Those that do conceive typically do so via IVF, using their own eggs they had had frozen during their childbearing years, donor eggs from younger women or embryos made from donor eggs.
Janet and Al Mana, a 41-year-old Qatari billionaire and businessman, wed in 2012.
I'd adopt," she said. "And I think that if I'm really supposed to have kids, it will happen, if that's God's plan for me."
Janet also told reports she would not encourage her kids to go into entertainment "unless it was something they really wanted to do. If they knew what they were up against."
The baby news comes the same day as Janet's mother Katherine Jackson's 86th birthday, days before Mother's Day this Sunday and less than two weeks before the singer's own 50th birthday on May 16.
