(Newser) – Janet Jackson has said she’s “allergic to marriage” but the youngest sibling in the entertainment family is ready for a baby, People reports. The 42-year-old's longtime boyfriend, Jermaine Dupri, says he and the pop star will focus on family “soon … right after the tour" she's set to begin in the fall.

"Janet would be a great mom. She was around so many brothers and sisters all her life, so she's got to know what that is [like],” added Dupri, who already has a daughter from a previous relationship. “And her mom is a great mother."
