Janet Jackson is pregnant at the age of 49. Everybody is discussing her pregnancy now.
A double-board certified doctor in obstetrics and gynaecology, Shahin Ghadir, shares with Us Weekly that the star has probably used a donor egg. As we know, the average age of menopause in the United States is 51. The doctor states that the chance of spontaneous pregnancy or with IVF at her age using own egg of the star is less than 1%. There is a chance that Janet froze her eggs earlier or that she turned to egg donor.
Fans are expressing concern about Janet’s child. They afraid it can be born with birth defects. Meanwhile the doctor states that the risks are connected with the age of the egg. In case Janet used her own egg at the age of 49, chances for the baby to acquire Downs Syndrome or other chromosomal abnormalities are higher. In case the star is using an egg donor, the chances are very low.
Janet attends a special club for mothers in their late forties. Kelly Preston had a boy at 48, Sophie B. Hawkins gave birth to her daughter at 50, Geena Davis delivered twins at the age of 48, Halle Berry welcomed her son at 47.
We remind you that the star is married to Wissam Al Mana, a billionaire businessman. The event happened 4 years ago. The union was confirmed only in 2013. They began dating 6 years ago.
