Janet Jackson just canceled her tour, but fans are cool with it because she might be pregnant!

Janet Jackson is canceling her tour partway through, but once her fans hear the reason, we doubt they'll be too upset about it.

In a video posted to Facebook, Jackson explained her decision to call off the tour before beginning its second leg.

"On August 31, as you probably know, I launched the Unbreakable World Tour," she said. "First I just want to thank all the fans for coming out and seeing the show. Thank you so much. You guys made it so enjoyable for me each and every night."

She then goes on to explain the "sudden change" that will affect the remaining tour dates.

"My husband and I are planning our family, so I'm going to have to delay the tour," she said. "Please, if you can try and understand that it's important that I do this now. I have to rest up — doctor's orders."

Hold on. Is she saying that she's pregnant? Based on this video, that definitely seemed like the only possible explanation. And we have to say, a baby is a pretty understandable reason for delaying a tour.

Unfortunately, while most of the comments posted under the video were congratulating Jackson on her exciting announcement, there were a few negative ones.

"I get she wants a family but seriously, either fully commit to an album and tour or don't bother," one commenter wrote. "She canceled the All For You tour, the Rock Witchu tour and now the Unbreakable tour. I've been a fan for years but this crap is wearing thin. Time for her to retire I think!"

Another wrote, "I love you Janet! I want my money back though because you should've thought of this before you planned this tour.....we're not all millionaires who can easily dump cash on concert tickets."
