R&B singer Janet Jackson is planning to start a family with longtime love Jermaine Dupri, the music producer has confirmed.

The 42-year-old Nasty singer admitted in February she's desperate for children, but isn't convinced she is mature enough to raise a child.

However, her longtime boyfriend, producer Dupri, disagrees, insisting the pair are ready to entertain ideas of a baby as soon as Jackson returns from her upcoming US tour.

He tells People magazine of the couple's baby plans: "Yeah, soon. Right after the tour."

Jackson is set to hit the road for her Rock Witchu North American tour - the first tour for the singer in seven years - this September. - Wenn
