Janet Jackson

Megastar Janet Damito Jo Jackson officially confirmed her high risk pregnancy at age 50.

“We thank God for our blessing,” Jackson told People magazine exclusively.

Jackson and her growing baby bump appear in the current issue of the magazine.

No doubt the pop icon posed for professional photos to silence the rumors that she is not pregnant or that she is "pulling a Beyonce" by hiring a surrogate.

Please don't try this at home, ladies. It is unnatural and unsafe for a woman of 50 to be carrying a baby.

You can get pregnant at age 50 if you're wealthy enough to undergo expensive IVF treatments and you have your obstetrician on 24-hour call. But for the rest of us, it is dangerous and impractical. Adoption is a safer and unselfish alternative.

    Janet knows she's too damn old for this nonsense. The whole world knows she's probably carrying a cabbage or watermelon under there.

    What a weird family. Those Jacksons even find ways to make child birth unusual.

  • SameoleJ

    Congrats, Janet and hubby!! Enjoy your blessing!!

    That is all I am going to give on this, because I don't feel like a ban threat today and you messing with my lifelong girl crush!!

    Oh and I love her braids and am scheduling my appointment for some.

    Oh and her nail polish is lovely!!

    She is just wearing all of this well!!

  • n1kk1a

    She's not selfish. It's her life and a blessing.

  • Scromes1212

    Justice is 50? Time goes by so quick. Hope everything goes well for her, God bless.

    Good for Janet!! Happiness can happen at any age (at least that's what I'm trying to tell myself) https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b91b5e53de5fb874a2d0a88f7ad9f8cf235ac011a8c4c1bf7efbc986e698719e.gif

  • Incog-knee-gress

    You are talking about my musical everything here Sandra. My love of music very well may trace back to Janet Jackson. No like "Janet Jackson" the self titled debut album. I aint here for this shat. Wish her well on her pregnancy and move a-damn-LONG nah.

  • Jusstlookn for Social Grace

    Nurse Sandra, you do know you become high risk at age 35.

    This is breaking news, but Congrats to her and spouse. Hoping for a healthy mom and baby.

    She looks great and happy. I pray that she continues to have a healthy pregnancy and give birth to a healthy baby.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    I knew it was most likely gonna be the last. Im so glad I got to go too.

    But just last week tho...Just last week you posted a story from your reputable source that she was indeed 'Beyoncéing'? Geesh man. I told my mama she was faking thanks to you? Now I halfta call her and retract. Thanks a lot man?

  • SG

    Right. And women are naturally getting pregnant and giving birth well into their 40's.

  • SG

    Beautiful! Thats all I got. Her cern, her life.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I am just the messenger, hun. Tell your mama I said stop listening to you and read the blog herself.

  • Teresa Uriel

    Janet was soo amazingly beautiful ( she still is ) in that video with Jermaine Dupri and the other video " All for You "

    No comment about her having a baby with the arab tho.

  • Hell_On_Heelz

    I just LOVE Miss. Jackson if you're nasty!!! Congrats!!!! We all deserve our Happy Ever After!

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Clearly Janet is dealing with some self esteem issues. Adoption is clearly the more reasonable solution but she's decided she'd rather risk her--and the baby's life--by getting pregnant. That is really narcissistic. Kudos to the airbrush guy though.

    Wonder if that oil rich hubby of hers is pressing her to take this enormous risk? Janet is not the Janet of "Pleasure Principle" days--she's now an old lady who evidently thinks she can defy time, like her brother thought. But Janet, stop playing--girl, them eggs long ago became powdered eggs and you ain't got no business laying up in somebody's stirrups, with your old ass!

    She should just be thankful she's got cash and a man--and a man with cash, adopt a baby and buy a bunch of cats.

    Now you know my Mama's eyes continuously wander making it nearly impossible for her to read? You trynna be funny? Don't make me get ugly?

  • MsSincerity

    I HATE when people do the "gaze into space" photo.....that's all I got.

  • Renee26

    So cute!! I'm wondering if they photo-shopped her chin or if she posed like that...looks awkward

    Exactly, shouldn't she want to experience pregnancy and give birth to her own child. I have a friend whose my had cancer while she was pregnant with her and she said he mom refused to abort or get chemo and today 25 years later they are both alive and well.

  • Sexy CJ

  • Lisa daniels
  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    How is her bringing a baby into this world selfish??? It's her body if GOD blessing her what is the deal??? It amazes me how some folk take a miraculous situation and turn it into something less desired. What the fawk???

  • SummerBaby

    Janet looks great!!

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    Probably more risky to take care of a sorry ball player who eats glue while he cheats on you with IG thots, then rap about it.

  • Milani

    She looks beautiful!

  • Lisa daniels

    Because they dont like children.

  • LibraGirlonly

    It's none of your business how and why Janet is having a baby at any age. With all due respect you sound ignorant. Why don't you adopt and buy a bunch of ?

  • SpiceGirl

    hun....the shade is real around here....ijs

  • Christopher Gibson

    Once again Petty Betty Sandra just had to be shady. I dont think she nor any of us on here has to change any of that baby's diapers, feed him/her, or anything that goes along with it. Just wish her and her husband continued blessings from God. Sandra it must be really miserable to be really miserable.

  • Lisa daniels

    OT: why is Janet's niece , Paris and her boyfriend saying that Paris is black? Smh.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    But you just said she had a cabbage or a watermelon under there. Now you are saying she is really pregnant, and selfish, and its her husbands fault she is taking the risk. Bipolar much?

    It just amazes me the negativity that people are spewing. A child is a blessing from God. Janet is happily married and not going to be just a "baby muva". My prayer is that God will bless her and her husband with a happy, beautiful, healthy baby.

    Its probably more risky to have sex with your married babydaddy and get pregnant while his wife pregnant too.

  • Joshua McDowell

    I wish people would shut u talking about Janet being pregnant at 50. If all these old ass men like Steve Martin, Alec Baldwin and Stevie Wonder, can still have kids, why can't Janet? I'm sure she wanted to have a child when she was younger but her career didn't allow her too.

    Congrats Miss Jackson! I'm glad that she's having a healthy pregnancy and if this is what she wants, people should be happy for her. I know a 40 year old who died in childbirth because she was too old. My personal opinion will always be that having a baby at 50 is too old and selfish. I hate seeing my parents get older and they're not even really old yet. I don't think a teenager should have an elderly parent...and 65 is elderly.

    Chile read.....
    When exactly does someone become elderly?

    A recent New York Times story calls a 69-year-old woman elderly. Philadelphia Metro considers 70 to be elderly. When NPR ran a story recently about a 71-year-old midwife, some readers objected to the word "elderly" in the original headline.

    One commenter responded: "REALLY?!? 'ELDERLY MIDWIFE'?! She's 71 and delivering babies! There's nothing elderly about her, and these days, not even her age!"

    Another wrote: "I was 70 in Feb and I certainly do not feel elderly ... Elderly is at least over 80 and as someone else suggested maybe 95."

    Editors decided to change the headline. And eventually, NPR's ombudsman weighed in on the "elderly" issue.

    In the same way other words have morphed in widespread acceptability — handicapped to disabled; Oriental to Asian; retarded to mentally challenged, and even those words are still in flux — elderly is becoming politically (and politely) incorrect. Certain terms apparently have term limits.

    Past Middle Age

    "Nobody likes to think of themselves as old, let alone very old," says Michael Vuolo, co-host of Slate's Lexicon Valley podcast. " 'Elderly' often carries the connotation of feeble and dependent. Which is offensive if you're not and condescendingly euphemistic if you are."

    The objection he has observed most often with regard to the phrase "the elderly," Vuolo says, "is similar to that of 'the deaf' or 'the disabled.' A construction like that creates a category without acknowledging that the category is composed of individuals. In other words, it's impersonal and other-ing. It's a bit like saying 'those people.' "

    Just how old is elderly? "Rather old," according to Merriam-Webster, who doesn't really help matters. "Being past middle age."

    Elderly is an old adjective dating back hundreds of years. It comes from an even older noun, elder, which the Oxford English Dictionary traces to the 10th century and defines as "in a wider sense, a predecessor, one who lived in former days."

    In many circles, the word "elder" is a vaunted title of veneration. We are told to respect our elders. We look up to elder statesmen. We bow down before tribal elders.

    To this day, certain religious groups, such as Presbyterians, elect "elders" to lead their congregations. Church elders can be young; they can be male or female. Similarly, many cities are run by aldermen — the British way of saying elder men. Aldermen can also be various ages and genders.

    Where Earth Meets Sky

    The word was not always so objectionable. In early 20th century America, "elderly" was socially preferable to the word "old."

    "We like your use of the word elderly," observed Atlanta Constitution advice columnist Dr. William Brady in 1918. "Maybe we would have more friends now if we had not insisted upon anything old when we meant elderly."

    But by 1956, some Americans were bristling at the description. When a 20-year-old girl referred to a 40-year-old man as "elderly" in a Washington Post story, readers reacted. The paper published the executive editor's advice to his staff about usage of the word. "A lot of us old folks in our 50s do not like to be called elderly," the editor opined. "When you are a great deal older than you are now, you will discover that the time a man becomes elderly is exactly like the place where the earth and sky meet."

    He added, "When you are 16 you wonder how an old man of 30 manages to drag himself around. When you get to be 30 you feel that 60 is as old as Methuselah. When you get to be 60 you will think that the 'aged' are those in their 90s."

    Now, 57 years later, the Washington Post is still wrestling with the question. A recent headline referred to a 68-year-old man as "elderly." Readers reacted.

    "I hardly consider it apt," one letter-to-the-editor writer observed.

    "What's wrong with being 'elderly'?" countered another reader. "Our society will forgo our fetish with youth only when we learn to embrace our age and the many descriptions of it, including 'mature,' 'well-seasoned' and 'elderly.' "

    As Old As You Feel

    The national longing for longevity is reaching new levels. Researchers tell us that 90 is the new 50. More and more products are created to make older people look and feel like younger people. And so the Elderly Line continues to shift, mirage-like, in the desert sand.

    The wisest American elders may never agree on who is elderly and who is not. In Rhode Island public agencies, elderly officially begins at 60. In Hawaii, it arrives at 55. On a national note, the IRS Tax Counseling for the Elderly program offers free tax advice to anyone 60 or older.

    In the end, "elderly" may be more a state of being — or feeling — than a certain age. And the question may not be whether someone else thinks of you as elderly, but whether you think of yourself as elderly.

    Jon Carroll, a columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle, has been referring to himself as an "elderly man" for 20 years or so. "Sometimes I feel more elderly than others," says Carroll, who is 69. "I don't flinch anymore at 'elderly' or 'old'; I flinch more at euphemisms like 'senior citizen' or 'golden years.' "

    He believes that it's important for older people "to take back the words for 'old' — another good word — and take the sting out of them. It's OK to be old."

    And, at the same time, it is worthwhile and sobering to remember that, tragically, many people never even get the opportunity to grow old.

But again we don't know what "IT" is fake belly or nah. We will never know. She's getting dragged a bit abt the other child she supposedly had. I like Janet's music, but never been a fan of her and MJ as people. Too much fakeness and self hate (MJ). But I wish her well with the baby....real talk.

    Not true says World Health Org.

    "The risk of maternal mortality is highest for adolescent girls under 15 years old and complications in pregnancy and childbirth is a leading cause of death among adolescent girls in developing countries.1,2"

    "Young adolescents face a higher risk of complications and death as a result of pregnancy than other women."

    Well I hope so too. But its risky for any woman of that age to get pregnant. Not to mention there's a good chance she'll be close to her 70s when her kids reach 18.

  • LadyFrance

    Seriously! If a woman is healthy and in good health she can have a bay. She can even get pregnant on her own if she still ovulates. This is not unheard of. The western world way of thinking is a bit limited when it comes to what a healthy human body can do. If it is WISE is a different discussion. If she and her husband and physician feel this is safe and doable more power to them

  • Scromes1212

    Every doctor in America would tell you the exact same thing Sandra said. But I guess cause it came from her it's bad advice. Smh

    I remember going to the ob/gyn, and was sitting next to a girl who was young and pregnant, and she said anyone 40 and over who attempt to have a baby are selfish. It took me by surprise but I understand...but we as a civilization in USA see that technology and science has taken us further than we've ever been.

She's giving older women hope that SCIENTIST and the WORLD says is taboo or unhealthy....not!!!!! God blessed her with that baby and believe it or NOT DOCTORS don't have all the answers or facts about our bodies. Some women 40 to 50+ contrary to belief are very healthy enough to carry a child just like a 30+ year old ???.....God bless Janet and her baby. Having a child is the greatest blessing a woman can have or give...at whatever age GOD grants you to. Only thing weird is your judgment!!

But as I said, if i wanted to walk around preggers for my husband with hopes of his help and care, not on welfare, my own money, and all the technology in the world and I am able to carry, it's my business. I vowed not to do it after i had my boys as a single mom ever, on;y if i was married, but I was more shocked of the scene of someone who (could be) getting assistance and subsidy as a single person raising kids to call people who want kids out side of a different bracket as yourself as selfish.

    She must have been completely photo shopped... because in the first picture that came out the other week she was huge. Face, arms, stomach... and now she just looks pregnant and not fat. I need answers?!?!?

    Didn't Diana Ross have a baby pass 50 too? And she still doing fine.

  • barbeez

    I have to agree. I don't understand why a woman who has been and in long term relationships would wait until she was 50. She's been grown and super rich since the 80s and you wait until now to get pregnant. Odd.

    If it is WISE is a different discussion

    This is what it boils down to, "If it is WISE.... " Doctors do not see it as wise due to possible complications even with a healthy woman.
    Then, the older you are, you know death is truly approaching. A good parent will not want to die while still raising their child.

  • Melissaisasnob

    Alright, she will be a "moist 70 year old." LMAO!

  • PRPSP

    I work in OB and the oldest patient we had was 53 and pregnant. Not only is this unsafe for the mother and the risks for fetal anomalies are tripled, but when her child is 10 she will be 60, I don't think that's fair to the child.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Oh Melissa. If you live that long (with all your faculties) you should be so lucky.

    Janet, Madonna and the likes are in GREAT physical shape. Those folks exercise and workout continuously, have chefs to prepare nutritious meals, etc. Your crusty problems are not their problems.

    My dad is a crusty 75+. Up before 6a, swims and runs daily, execute errands, presides and sits on boards, is a missionary, and travels the world extensively throughout the year. His mind is sharp as a tack and can sit with the best in mathematics and chess.

    I value the crusts I have encountered throughout my journey. They have taught me so many things. Things to carry on to the next generation.

    We should all strive to be crusty. ?

    P.S. When does crusty start? I want to prepare myself.

    These people are nuts. Census records common childbearing age between the ages of 16-45. I don't know where Sandra and these other uneducated fools get that after 30 there's an issue. Most educated career women start having children in their 30s because they are waiting to get married. I was one of them. Women have children in their early 40s all the time. These hoodrats are used to Shaenqua that got pregnant at 17.

  • bella28498 .

    if old ppl wanna have kids let them....while I'm doing wtf I want when I want don't call me to babysit.....even though I do not condone Janet waiting until 50 to have a baby but she has lived a full life and she may no longer need to run around and have fun and be free.

    It doesn't matter when they got the Bible or were allowed to read it, the bottom line is it is not likely that we as a race would be following the Bible if not for slavery. If you think Christianity is corrupt then that line of reasoning should also cause you to have doubts about the authenticity of the Bible. Humans can't be trusted period, all religions and supernatural books are false.

  • Rachel B

    First of all "high risk" is not 35. 35 is when there is a significant drop in fertility in a lot of women but most still get pregnant without a problem in 6 months to 1 year. I was a normal pregnancy while I know many women in their late 20s that had problems. Not to mention I eat organic food, exercise and use toxin free skincare.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Good for you Janet. I thought it was a fat suit. So fat suit or if she's carrying the bundle herself, best of luck. Hell I figure Janet at 30 or Janet at 50, there would be nannies, assistants, drivers, etc, so other than that, what's the big deal with her having the baby so late. High risk, yes I get it; it's not the norm and can be dangerous. As many have noted, we're looking at someone who has the money, resources, and access to the best of the best. Halle was older AND a diabetic.

    SN; Are there any people who could not see themselves adopting a kid? I couldn't. I remember watching Tboz's show and she was telling Chilli she's thinking about adopting (I think she did end up doing this for real). The look on Chilli's face said it all, but she went on to say she could never do that. I couldn't either. If I have kids, I want my own, from me, by me.

    if Janet is 50, when her child turns 10, she will be 60

    Isn t there any inssurances for it?? I mean life happens. Why not start at 50? If you have an active life by the tie the kid is in his 20's you'll be 70. Why not???

  • Gingertee

    I hate to shock folks but women get pregnant at this age more than folks think. Its not the norm but it is not uncommon. While it is a high risk pregnancy, the baby can be healthy and IVF is not always required. This depends on the individual woman and her reproductive system. To wish her any harm or make fun of the condition makes no sense to me, why be negative about her joyful condition. Blessings, well wishes and great health to her and her growing family. It just doesn't make any sense that someone always has to say something negative.

  • Gingertee

    I know. Shaenqua had her baby in 8th grade and now there is something wrong with everyone else.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    This isn't Janet's first child nor is carrying her child this time around. She using a surrogate , I'd wish she be honest about it and stop trying to play people for fools. Plenty of women have babies naturally in their 50's , too bad Janet isn't one of them.

  • 88

    Why is it always negroes trying to sound deep and know absolutely nothing. The men who wrote the bible were so called Negroes you fool that's who the bible is about and for. The so called white man didn't even get their hands on the bible until the 1400's smdh. Just stop you are making a fool of yourself right now.

    Or she could have gotten a surrogate. I hope the baby is okay.

  • https://provokedthoughts46.wordpress.com ProvokedThoughts46

    You can just look at her face & hands she is pregnant. There was a lady at my job in her late 40's who thought pregnancy days were over for her, next thing she's pregnant. It wasn't from IVF either. If God is seeing her through her pregnancy that's all that really matters. What God Bless, No Man Shall Curse.

  • https://provokedthoughts46.wordpress.com ProvokedThoughts46

    Just wanted to add that the day you give birth you will realize how "selfless" becoming a parent truly is. The days of it being "ALL" about "YOU" are gone forever because you never stop loving/ caring about your child/children, so I'm not sure what exactly she is being selfish about.

  • pika12

    It doesn't matter what color the authors of the Bible were, they were just human beings who didn't know anymore about a god then you or I. They just rehashed stories from older religions and altered them to fit their agenda and their newer man-made god, Yahweh (see Panbabylonism, the Enuma Elish, and the Epic of Gilgamesh). The god of the Old Testament is a completely different character then the god of the New Testament. The various authors of the New Testament used the Jesus character as a vehicle to update a set of beliefs that has once again become outdated. Except now society is too intelligent to fall for a Third Testament, so instead different groups of people have just formed completely new religions or watered down their Biblical beliefs. There may some higher form of intelligence in existence but at this point humans are clueless as to any information about that form of existence and just keep making up things and fighting over who is right instead of just accepting agnosticism as the only reality.

    If the baby healthy and the pregnancy is without complications, go for it. I bet 50 is a great time to have children. If all is well, you're done w most of your foolishness; you can concentrate on raising the child; your wisdom is percolating; and your nerves are relaxed. Yeah, 50 is good.
