This season American singer Janet Jeckson has a lot to be happy about if reports for her engagment to Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana is true.

She tweeted a seasonal greetings card to her fans, Janet certainly looked as if she were in a good mood.

It is reported that Janet Jackson secretly got engaged to Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana.  The couple now plans to get married during spring in Doha, Qatar in 2013.

Janet Jackson has been dating Wissam Al Mana since 2010  and now the businessman has finally popped the question.

According to Us Weekly, The 37-year-old businessman 'gave her a huge, expensive ring' and the 46-year-old pop star is so afraid it will get lost, 'she keeps it locked up'.

Another report claims that Janet and Wissam allegedly got engaged last year after Wissam, a billionaire whose family has extensive reaches in the real estate and media spheres, proposed to her with a stunning 15 carat diamond ring.

Wissam is the managing director of Al Mana Retail, which represents A/X Armani Exchange, and he's a shareholder in the Saks Fifth Avenue.

Janet and Wissam will be wedded in a Muslim ceremony. A renown Turkish author, Adnan Oktar (aka Harun Yahya), is also making the claim that the 46-year-old Janet Jackson has converted to Islam — as did her brother, Michael Jackson — and is choosing to keep her new religion a secret from her fans.

According to an insider the wedding will be "one of the biggest, most memorable extravaganzas in recent history".

Janet's wealthy beau plans on sparing no expense for their spring nuptials in Qatar, and 'he is flying in all of Janet's friends and family on private jets.'

They will reportedly spend $3 million to fly in their 500 wedding guests from all over the world, while Wissam wants to give all attendees a $10,000 Rolex watch each as a thank you for attending.

The insider added: "Wissam is going to splash big when he marries Janet. It's going to be the wedding of the century."

The couple met in December of 2009 after Janet gave a special performance in the Middle East and the rest, so it seems, is history. The couple was supposedly shooting for a 2011 wedding, but they ultimately tempered their excitement and chose to hold off for a couple of years so they could have time to plan the festivities.

The 46-year-old singer - the sister of the late Michael Jackson - has previously insisted there is nothing wrong with dating younger men as long as the couple is happy.

Janet has been married twice before. In 1985, she had her marriage singer James DeBarge and in 1991, she secretly married dancer, songwriter, and director René Elizondo, Jr. but the couple divorced in 2000.

Janet - who was in a seven-year relationship with music producer Jermaine Dupri - said: "My mother always raised us to believe that age was just a number. All of us - my sisters, my brothers - we'll just tell you our ages because it's all about where you are mentally and how you feel about yourself. It doesn't matter."

Well, I'm not sure how to feel about this...I am a little puzzled because it doesn't seem like she isn't denying nor confirming it. Billonaire? Wow..

I do wonder why she and Jermaine D. never got married seeing as how they were together for so long. I think they parted ways a little after Michael..

When I saw his name I figured he was from another country. As long as she's happy I'm happy for her. And she's right. Age ain't nothin but a number.

I hope nothing ridiculous like that whole thing w/ her family happens with her again.  She normally keeps herself out of messes like that.  I wish her the best though.
