Tick tock! Janet Jackson, 49, may be trying to start a family with her husband, billionaire Wissam Al Mana, 41, but the odds are totally not in her favor for getting pregnant. At her age, the chance she could conceive — even with IVF — is sadly just one percent, an top doctor tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“If a 49 year old woman were to try to get pregnant, even though IVF, the chance is less than on percent with her own genetics, meaning her own 49 year-old-egg. But lets say she may have frozen her eggs 10 years ago when she was still in her 30’s, it’s possible this is her own genetics. Or the more likely option is that she may be using a donor egg,” Dr. Sherry Ross, an OB/GYN and Women’s Health Expert at Providence Satin John’s Health Care Center in Santa Monica, CA tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“IVF can be very draining, it’s not something someone living the Hollywood lifestyle — whether they are doing a movie or on tour — could likely do. It’s a minimum of a three month process of getting injectable hormones and being monitored by a fertility specialist, and at some point having the survey to have the eggs implanted. Most IVF patients are put on house arrest by their doctors, not bed rest but they certainly aren’t out on stage giving concerts, especially not the way Janet moves!” Dr. Ross adds.

That would explain why Janet suddenly bailed on the second leg of her tour, telling fans that “My husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour. Please, if you can, try to understand that it’s important that I do this now. I have to rest up; doctor’s orders. But I have not forgotten about you.” Sounds like she’s trying to wind things down so she can concentrate on getting pregnant!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Janet waited too long to start a family?
