Is Janet Jackson trying to get pregnant at age 49? Well, maybe. In a video to fans on Twitter Wednesday, Jackson explained that she is postponing the second leg of her current tour, reports Us Weekly. "I thought it was important that you be the first to know," she says. "My husband and I are planning our family." Jackson never uses the word "pregnant," but she adds, "Please, if you can try and understand it's important that I do this now. I have to rest up, doctor's orders." Jackson first put her "Unbreakable" tour on hiatus in December when she had surgery for reasons she never made public. She did, however, publicly deny rumors that she had cancer, notes People. Jackson is married to 41-year-old Wissam Al Mana. (More Janet Jackson stories.)
