Since Janet Jackson announced her pregnancy, questions arise, again, about her alleged “secret daughter” she’s had with her first husband, singer James DeBarge.

Janet and James had a very brief marriage during the mid-80s…a time when an 18-year-old Janet was successfully coming from under the shadow of her brothers, The Jacksons.

According to published reports, Janet wed James against her family’s wishes because of her age and her blossoming career in music and acting. Allegedly, Janet’s sister, Reebie, raised the girl while living in Las Vegas. Other conflicting reports claims that the baby was put in foster care.

“I believe I do have a sister out there,” James’ 26-year-old daughter, Kristinia tells ‘Inside Edition’.

Kristinia said she suspects the baby was given up because “[Jackson’s] family had a huge influence on her. If she was pregnant, the only thing I can think of is that she still had a very long career ahead of her.”

She believes the time has come for the truth to come out, adding: “I think for me I am going to continue to research and I am going to continue to try and find this person.”

Superstar, Janet Jackson, and the late lyrical legend, Tupac Shakur, are among the nominees for the induction into the 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. According to ‘People Magazine’, this marks the second consecutive year on the ballot for Jackson. Shakur made it onto the list of nominees in his first year of eligibility. Artists must have released their first single or album at least 25 years ago, or no later than 1991 for the 2017 nominees, to be considered. Shakur released his first album 2Pacalyspse Now in 1991.

Jackson and Shakur are both stars in the John Singleton classic, ‘Poetic Justice’.

Congrats to both!

Although this isn’t the first time we’ve seen expected Mommy, Janet Jackson, it’s wonderful to see the glowing mother-to-be with her baby bump.

This will be the first child for both Janet and her husband, Wissam Al Mana. After rumors floated around that she used a surrogate, the 50-year-old confirmed her pregnancy with ‘People Magazine’.

“We thank God for our blessing,” says the star.

Over the last few months, Jackson has kept a low profile and was last spotted shopping for baby buys at London’s Back in Action furniture store.

“She is super excited about her pregnancy and is doing extremely well,” a source close to the Jackson family previously told PEOPLE. “She actually feels very good about everything.”

‘Entertainment Tonight’ has captured images of a pregnant Janet Jackson Tuesday, and the glowing mommy-to-be looks great! Although Jackson’s public appearance dispels speculations of her not being pregnant at all, the photos do confirm the obvious weight gain, which made news recently. Doctors reportedly ordered her on bed rest due to “unhealthy weight gain”.

According to ET, Jackson was spotted out and about in London, leaving the baby furniture store.

If you’ve ever wondered why we haven’t seen much of Janet Jackson since her pregnancy announcement, then the latest news might be the reason. According to new reports, the iconic entertainer and youngest of the Jackson family has reportedly gained so much weight, that it makes for a risky pregnancy, resulting in strict orders from her doctor to not to leave the house.

Sources claim she “has ballooned to 250 pounds”.

“This pregnancy is doing a number on her,” added the insider.
Janet is also struggling over her appearance as she prepares for her first child and the source claimed, “she didn’t want anyone to see that she was already getting huge”.

Janet and her husband, Wissam Al Mana, has yet to reveal the sex of the baby.

Prayers up for JJ to have a healthy baby. We already know he/she will be beautiful. Those Jacksons have nice eyes, smiles, and cheekbones!
