*Janet Jackson has reportedly converted to Islam in order to share her religion with her husband, with whom she is expecting her first child. The 50-year-old singer wed Wissam Al Mana in secret in 2012 – and her friends believe she has undergone a full religious conversion to honor him.
A source told The Sun newspaper: ”When she’s visiting Wissam’s family in the Middle East she wears no make-up, no hair extensions and keeps to traditional Muslim clothing. She feels like she has found a home with her new religion. She has spent a great deal of time studying it.”
The source added: ”The days of raunchy dance moves and sexual lyrics are long gone.”

Meanwhile, the couple have already began discussing names for their baby son. As we previously reported, Jackson is planning to name her baby Michael Brandon as an homage to both her late brother Michael Jackson and Marlon’s twin brother, Brandon, who passed away at birth.
Jackson and her husband agreed to the name, which doesn’t compromise his Muslim traditions. Michael Brandon is alleged to be their son’s middle name, with the first name to be chosen by Al Mana, BET reports.
A source said: ”Her support system is extremely strong. She is taking things easy these days and is feeling well but not overdoing it in any capacity of her life. Janet is staying healthy for her and her baby. She’s been praying for a child for a very long time.”
Another source added that the pregnancy was ”the best thing” to happen to the singer.
”Janet is super excited. She’s doing great. Janet feels really strong and is just so excited for the baby to come. She feels like this is one of the best things ever to happen to her.”
