A Glowing Janet Jackson Releases First Picture And Statement On Pregnancy

October 12, 2016  |  

We showed you pictures a few weeks back of a very pregnant Janet Jackson out shopping for items for her bundle of joy. And while we knew that Jackson halted the second leg of her Unbreakable tour to work on “planning her family” with Wissam Al Mana, she never fully announced that she was expecting. Sources and even big brother Tito Jackson talked to press about her being pregnant, and there were even rumors about her being on bed rest. Still, Jackson kept quiet and stayed out of public view. But now, six months after letting fans know she was taking a break to expand her family, she’s opening up about expecting and sharing the first official image of herself carrying her little one. It’s official like a referee with a whistle for those who had doubts:

She’s definitely glowing!

However, per the usual, Jackson is talking about expecting her first child on her own terms. What I mean by that is, she’s not saying too much.

“We thank God for our blessing,” Jackson told PEOPLEAnd that was it.

This is Jackson’s first pregnancy, and the fact that she’s expecting at 50 has stirred up quite the conversation. This is also the first child for third husband, Wissam Al Mana, 41, who is a successful Qatari businessman. The pair have been married since 2012.

And they’re a super cute couple. Congrats!
