Janet Jackson has delayed her Unbreakable world tour for a second time to start a family.

Jackson, 49, released a video on Twitter saying the tour will be postponed because she and her husband Wissam Al Mana, 41, want to start a family.  The couple married in 2012.

“We’re in the second leg of the tour, and there actually has been a sudden change,” Jackson says in the clip. “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.”

“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,” Jackson continued.

The singer thanked her fans for all of their support during her tour saying they “made it so enjoyable for me each and every night.”

“Thank you to all the fans for your love, your undying love, your loyalty, that means so much to me,” Jackson says. “You are truly appreciated and it’s been a long journey, and you guys have been there each and every step of the way.”

Jackson postponed her 2016 tour dates in December to undergo an unspecified surgery.
