Janet Jackson confirms pregnancy at age 50

In case the photos , cryptic messages and acknowledgements from friends weren’t enough, Janet Jackson has officially confirmed that she is pregnant at the age of 50.

The singer shared the news (and posed for photos) with People, telling the magazine, “We thank God for our blessing.”

Jackson postponed a couple of shows in Atlanta before announcing in April that she was temporarily shelving her entire “Unbreakable” tour to plan her family.

This will be the first child for Jackson and husband Wissam Al Mana.
