Janet Jackson Confirms Pregnancy with Stunning Photo

Janet Jackson is expecting.

The 50-year-old icon has officially announced that she is pregnant in an interview with PEOPLE.

“We thank God for our blessing,” she said.

In April, Jackson postponed her “Unbreakable World Tour” to plan a family with her husband, Wissam Al Mana.

“I thought it was important that you would be the first to know my husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour,” she told fans at the time. “Please, if you can try to understand that it’s important that I do this now. I have to rest up, doctor’s orders. But I have not forgotten about you. I will continue to tour as soon as I possibly can.”

Now, insiders have confirmed the long-standing rumor that she was pregnant with her first child.

To go with this confirmation, the mom-to-be also released an official pregnancy portrait. Shot by photographer Solaiman Fazel, Jackson has that motherly glow as she dons all white at the beach.
