It’s official! Janet Jackson is pregnant

Janet Jackson

Janet Jackson has officially confirmed she is pregnant with her first child at 50.

In April, Babyology first reported the singer was expecting, with sources reportedly telling ET the exciting news.

Now the star has made it official, showing off her bump and telling People magazine: “We thank God for our blessing”.

Speculation of her impending arrival started after Janet posted a video to Twitter and Instagram explaining to fans she was postponing her world tour to start planning a family with her husband Wissam Al Mana.

“We’re in the second leg of the tour and there actually has been a sudden change,” Jackson says, in the video to her fans.

“I thought it was important that you be the first to know. My husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour.

“Please, if you could try and understand that it’s important that I do this now. I have to rest up, doctor’s orders.”
