Janet Jackson has had to postpone her world tour once again... but this time we know why.

The singer took to Twitter on Wednesday morning (April 6) to tell fans that she's delaying her shows to plan a family with her husband, Qatari business magnate Wissam Al Mana, whom she married in 2012.

In the clip, she says:

"We're in the second leg of the tour and there actually has been a sudden change. I thought it was important that you would 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 to understand that it's important that I do this now. I have to rest up, doctor's orders. But I have not forgotten about you. I will continue to tour as soon as I possibly can."

Jackson had postponed her tour twice already. She underwent vocal surgery earlier this year and fought off rumors that she had cancer.
