Pop star Janet Jackson is pregnant with her first child, at age 50.

Jackson went public with her baby news to celebrity magazine People.

"We thank God for our blessing," she said.

Jackson, who is married to Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana, stirred speculation that something was up when she cancelled her tour, citing personal reasons.

"I thought it was important that you be the first to know," she said in a Twitter video at the time. "My husband and I are planning our family, so I'm going to have to delay the tour," she was quoted as saying in April.
