Six months after announcing she and hubby Wissam Al Mana were planning a family, Janet Jackson has confirmed she's pregnant with her first child at 50. "We thank God for our blessing," Jackson tells People, which has a photo of the singer caressing her bump. Rumors about a baby on the way have been swirling since Jackson postponed her world tour in April, and they were further fueled by photos of her shopping at a baby furniture store last month, per Entertainment Tonight. "She is super excited about her pregnancy and is doing extremely well," a source says. (Click to see Jackson's baby bump, or check out a list of celebs who gave birth after 40.)
