Janet Jackson has revealed her mum is keen for Janet and boyfriend Jermaine Dupri to have a child but they’ve got no plans just yet.

Janet told Vibe Vixen magazine: “My mother said, ‘Baby, you should really start thinking about it because you’re really getting a lot older now.’”

“I said, ‘Mother, I know, but I’ve still got stuff to do.’ It will happen… I think I’ve still got time.”

She added that they will consider artificial insemination if they can’t have a baby naturally (”As long as it’s ours, I would definitely do that”) and she would prefer a baby boy to a girl: “I’m more partial to boys. I think it’s from being a tomboy, growing up and hanging with my brothers.”
