Janet Jackson hasn't spoken out about her pregnancy until now. The 50-year-old singer talked to People magazine and provided pictures that show her growing belly bump. Janet officially confirmed that she is having the baby herself and not using a surrogate. A lot of rumors have surrounded Janet's pregnancy especially because she has kept a low profile after she made the announcement last April. Jackson told her fans that she was postponing her "Unbreakable World Tour" because she and her 41-year-old husband Wissam Al Mana were planning to start their family.

Expectant mother excited

Janet Jackson shared that she is excited to soon be a new mother. She says she and her husband thank God for their blessing. Up until recently, Jackson has stayed out of the public's eye. The star was seen and photographed a few weeks ago when she was shopping ata baby furniture store in London.

The singer married her third husband in 2012, and this will be their first child. Earlier reports indicated that she had gained about 100 pounds and was put on bedrest. The photo on the cover of People magazine shows her in a white fitted dress. She is smiling and glowing. The expectant mother is absolutely beautiful as she cups her stomach.

Janet's due date

At first, the due date of the baby was said to be early December.

Now, the due date has been moved to November because people are speculating that the expectant mother might have twins considering how big she is. Tito Jackson spoke about his younger sister's pregnancy back in June on the "Wendy Williams Show." He said Janet was going great and doesn't care whether she will have a boy or girl.

She and her husband just want a healthy baby. Brother Jermaine Jackson said he is voting for a girl because there are enough boys in their family already. Since this is the first child for Janet's husband, he probably won't mind having an heir to carry on his name.
