This is SO exciting! Janet Jackson has finally let the world in on her big news — the fact that she’s pregnant with her very 1st child at 50 years old! And while fans have speculated for months now, this is the first time Janet has addressed the pregnancy herself. In fact, Janet even called her bundle of joy a true ‘blessing!’ Get all the new details here.
Janet Jackson, 50, has officially confirmed her pregnancy, according to People magazine, and she is certainly one glowing mom-to-be! We can’t even imagine how thrilled she and her husband Wissam Al Mana, 41, must be. This is, after all, their very first child together! “We thank God for our blessing,” Janet told the publication. SO sweet!
This news however, doesn’t come as a huge shock. Fans started speculating that Janet was pregnant after she announced back in April that she was postponing her Unbreakable World Tour in May to focus on “planning” a family with her hubby.
And since her video announcement, which can be viewed above, Janet has completely stayed out of the spotlight. The first time she emerged was just last month when she was spotted shopping for baby products at London’s Back in Action furniture store. She drew major attention because she was sporting a large baby bump!
“She’s been resting a lot and taking good care of herself to avoid problems, so she was really glad to get out of the house that day,” a Star magazine insider revealed of her rare outing. “Plus, I think she may have wanted to disprove rumors that they used a surrogate. Janet’s so proud that she’s carrying the babies on her own!” And we do not blame her for that! Most people believed if Janet truly was starting a family, she was using a surrogate.
“She is super excited about her pregnancy and is doing extremely well,” a source close to the Jackson family previously revealed to People. “She actually feels very good about everything.” And as HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Janet may actually be pregnant with twins!
“Based on the possibility that [Janet] underwent fertility treatment, it is highly likely that Janet could be carrying twins,” Registered Dietitian Lisa DeFazio revealed to us EXCLUSIVELY. So Janet and Wissam may not only be getting one baby, but they may be blessed with TWO! How exciting is that?
