Jackson Takes Time Off To Plan Pregnancy
Janet Jackson is taking a break from music to focus on having a baby with boyfriend Jermaine Dupri, according to new reports.
Jackson sparked rumours she was expecting her first child with music mogul Dupri after she scrapped a string of rescheduled concerts after falling ill with vertigo at the beginning of October (08).
According to reports by the National Enquirer, the couple is using Jackson's hiatus to start a family.
A source tells the tabloid, "She's over her health problems, and he feels since the tour was less than a smash hit, it would be the perfect time to start a new project - a baby. Janet is 42 years old. Jermaine wants to get married and have a child before it's too late.
"Janet tried to fight through the dates but it was getting more and more difficult. He told her they don't need the money, and he didn't want to put her through the exhaustion and risk of more health problems. They both want a baby - he told her the time was now.
"He wants Janet to focus on her health so that if she gets pregnant, there won't be problems that could prevent her from carrying to full term. After hearing Jermaine's logic, she decided to cancel the tour.
Earlier this month, the singer revealed she is just waiting for the right time to become a first-time mum, telling Sister 2 Sister magazine, "At some point it's coming. When? I have no idea. He (Dupri) has been past ready. He's just waiting for me; I'm the one
holding up the whole thing.
"Everyone tells me that there will never be a good time, that I will always be busy, but I just think when the stars are aligned it will happen."
