Tito further confirmed that she is carrying her first child, and did not get a surrogate. The 62-year-old entertainer did not know the due date of Janet and husband Wissam Al Mana's baby, nor does the couple know the sex of the child. Tito says they're simply "hoping for a healthy baby."

In May, ET broke the news that Janet was pregnant after she postponed her tour. “We’re in the second leg of the tour and there actually has been a sudden change,” Jackson explained in a video posted to Twitter on April 6. “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.”
