Janet Jackson has been dating her love, Qatari businessman Wissam Al Mana, 36, since 2009, if you didn’t know. They’ve kept their relationship very private and became engaged last year.

Yes, that’s right, it was last year that Wissam is said to have popped the question, presenting the 45-year-old singer with a 15 carat diamond ring. On the other hand, if that’s true, Janet denied at the time.

At the time, she was preparing for her very intimate tour so could not focus on life decisions like marriage.

However, now that her show is wrapping up on September 1, she now feels ready for the big step.

“Now Janet’s telling friends that an official engagement will come by summer’s end, and that she and Wissam will marry in late 2011 – and they’re shopping for an even bigger diamond ring to celebrate their official engagement,” a source told National Enquirer magazine.

Sources say Wissam has been good for the performer, boosting her confidence and being very supportive. The two have also talked about starting a family.
