Is Janet Jackson having a baby?

The singer all but stated she’s expecting a child in a Twitter post Wednesday, announcing her plan to further postpone her “Unbreakable” world tour so she and husband Wissam Al Mana can plan a family.

The 49-year-old was a little vague on the details, saying in the video post “We’re in the second leg of the tour, and there actually has been a sudden change.”

“My husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour,” she said, in the one-minute, 45-second message. “Please, if you can, try to understand that it’s important that I do this now. I have to rest up — doctor’s orders.”

She also thanked fans for their love and support.

Jackson, who turns 50 next month, previously postponed her tour in December due to an unspecified medical procedure. The “Unbreakable” tour kicked off last August and was originally slated to stop in New York City Aug. 15 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

She married Al Mana, a 41-year-old business magnate, in 2012 after two previous marriages.
