Janet Jackson will Join List of 40+ Celebrities who gave Birth after 40

janet jackston

At 49-years old, pop singer Janet Jackson is reportedly pregnant with her first child with husband Wissam Al ManaEntertainment Tonight exclusively reports.

Last month, Jackson canceled her latest tour, citing doctor’s orders for her to take it easy while she plans a family. Then, given her advanced maternal age, most people speculated that she would likely be using a surrogate or adopting a child.

With modern advancement in medicine, what was once almost impossible is now very much possible for older women wishing to have children.

She will join our growing list of celebrity women who gave birth after their 40s and at 50, when she’ll welcome her child (or children, depending if she’s carrying twins). She turns 50 in 2 weeks.

Supermodel Naomi Campbell says she’s considering having a baby (VIDEO)

Supermodel Naomi Campbell appeared on the Wendy Williams show for the first time ever today and during her interview told Wendy she would consider having children in the future. 
While on the show to plug tonight’s premiere of the second season of The Face her model competition show on the Oxygen network,  the host mentor and show’s executive producer talked with Williams about a wide variety of topics including babies!!
When Williams asked Campbell if she would ever consider starting a family, Campbell replied: 

“OK. Possibility. I absolutely adore [kids]. I adore. I have two orphanages in Kenya. Yeah. One in Jamaica. One in Cuba. I love kids. The right guy, or the right bank”

Alright now! Many A list celebrity moms (over 20 of them) have had babies in the later years, after age 40. 
And not everyone is waiting for the perfect man either. Last year, Spanish model Monica Cruz, sister to Penelope Cruz, welcomed her first child via an anonymous donor from a sperm bank because, as she stated last January,  she felt her clock was ticking and she didn’t want to wait for the right man to come along.

Come on with it, Ms. Naomi. A baby or babies would definitely rock and change her world! Wouldn’t it?
