The youngest Jackson sibling is expecting her first child with her husband, Qatari businessman Wissam Al Mana. Speculation of a pregnancy first began swirling in April, when the “Dammn Baby” singer postponed her Unbreakable world tour to focus on “planning our family.”
“We look at her like our little baby and now she’s grown and having a baby,” Jermaine, 61, said at the time. “I’m proud to be an uncle and I can’t wait to see how this baby is going to look.
“She’ll be a great mother because she is very tough, very strict,” he added. “But I tell her, ‘If you need any parenting skills or baby skills, let me know because I’m the best diaper changer there is on this planet, still to this day.’ ”
