Washington D.C. [USA], Oct. 13 (ANI): Janet Jackson officially confirmed that she is pregnant with her first child with husband, Wissam Al Mana.

The 50-year-old star told People, "We thank God for our blessing" in an exclusive interview and photoshoot for their forthcoming issue.

Jackson has been on a hiatus for the past couple of months ever since she announced that she would be postponing her world tour.

There had been reports and photos surfaced of the singer shopping in London with an apparent baby bump before the 'Rhythm Nation' officially confirmed her pregnancy.

Earlier this year, Jackson took to her Twitter handle to inform fans that she and her husband, Al Mana, would be "planning our family" and needed to delay the tour so she could rest up. (ANI)
