In April, the star announced that she was delaying her Unbreakable tour because she and her husband were “planning our family”.
The singer posted a video on her Twitter account to announce the news.
She did not say that she was pregnant but said there had been a “sudden change” to the second leg of her tour – which started in August 2015.
Jackson, who turned 50 in May, married Al Mana in 2012.
