"We're in the second leg of the tour, and there actually has been a sudden change. I thought it was important that you be the first to know. My husband and I are planning our family. So I'm going to have to delay the tour," the singer said in a video message posted to Twitter on the morning of Wednesday, April 6.
"Please, if you can try and understand it's important that I do this now. I have to rest up, doctor's orders. I have not forgotten about you. I will continue the tour as soon as I possibly can," she continued.

Janet and her husband, Wissam, 41, married in a private ceremony in 2012. The "Rhythm Nation" songstress was previously hitched to soul singer James DeBarge from 1984 until 1985 and to music video director René Elizondo, Jr. from 1991 to 2001.
Congratulations to Janet on her pregnancy!
