Janet Jackson is finally pregnant with her first child at the age of 49. And RadarOnline.com has learned it didn't come easy! Click through to find out all the details of her fertility battle.
Jackson looked happier than ever when she posted this video Wednesday on Instagram, along with a not-so-subtle caption that said, "Bang bang ya gon gon get it... #DammnBaby!" As fans of the "Pleasure Principle" singer know, "Dammn Baby" is the name of her most recent single, which dropped this week.
After several failed marriages, Jackson wed billionaire Wissam Al Mana, 41, in 2012 in a top-secret ceremony. According to a Jackson family insider, "Janet and Wissam are super secretive about everything and they really wanted to wait until the doctors told her that the baby was healthy and everything looked good to tell the family."
Last month, after Jackson cancelled her Unbreakable World Tour, she took to Twitter to let her fans know that the tour was postponed per doctor's orders, and that she was starting "family planning." However, the source told Radar that she was already pregnant when she did this video! "Her pregnancy is the ONLY reason that she cancelled the tour," said the source.

Although the pregnancy seemed sudden, Radar has learned that it was a long time coming. "Janet started fertility treatments right after she was given the green light that her throat was healed. Her doctors started her on fertility right away," the insider said, adding, "Janet knew that she had to do this now or never. It is a dream come true!"
