Several sources say newly married Janet Jackson, 47, and billionaire hubby Wissam Al Mana are following Angelina Jolie's and Brad Pitt's lead in seeking to adopt at least two children, from Jordan and possibly children from civil war-ravaged Syria.
"It's going to happen, and real soon," a family member said.
Younger brother Randy, whom Janet joined last year in trying to wrest control of Michael Jackson's estate from executors John Branca and John McClain, has long touted his sister as "someone who�d make a perfect mom."
Of the Jacksons, Randy is considered closest to Janet.
"She's the sweetest person on earth," Randy Jackson said.
"Janet has always been concerned about the welfare of the world's children and it's important to her that she affords a baby the opportunities that have been afforded her," another source said.
In addition to Jolie, Jackson has also reached out to Queen Rania of Jordan to help facilitate an adoption, something Jolie had previously done, as well.
Efforts to independently confirm a meeting between the pop princess and the royal were unsuccessful.
Surprisingly, the Jackson source said Janet hasn't ruled out getting pregnant, even at 47. "She's kept herself in great shape," the source said.
