Jose Canseco's Wife

We're Trying to Have Twins

... But He's Got Issues

8/4/2015 8:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Jose Canseco's gonna be a daddy again -- if he can just sort out some fertility issues that might be tied to his past steroid use ... according to his wife, Leila Knight.

Leila was leaving Katsuya in Hollywood and decided to break the news -- she and Jose are trying to get knocked up ... with TWINS! Leila says they're going through in vitro right now, and they're even removing those pesky 'Y' chromosomes to ensure they get girls, 'cause she doesn't want carbon copies of Jose and his twin bro. Her words, not ours.

But she admits there's some stuff Jose has "to get off of and get on" before they get the job done. And don't miss her jab at Jose's age at the end!

Cold-blooded.

It happened at the Amarillo Dragway in Texas Saturday night.  Dave was driving a nitrous-fed Chevy II and struck the wall seconds after the race started.

Janet Jackson has put her life on hold to take care of her dad while he recovers from 3 heart attacks, and she's the only member of the brood who made the trek to Brazil.

We're told Janet arrived in Brazil Tuesday to tend to her father, cancelling rehearsals for her upcoming tour. We're told Janet limited the access to ICU, where Joe was hooked up for nearly a week.   

The good news ... Joe's now out of ICU and on the mend. He's eating solid foods and the goal is for him to regain enough strength so he can get on a plane and return to the U.S. for further treatment.

We're told La Toya and Jermaine were talking about flying over, but when Joe's condition improved they decided to wait until he came home.

If all goes well, Joe could return home as early as Monday.
