Janet Jackson is finally ready to share her closely guarded secret.

The 50-year-old pop icon announced that she’s expecting her first child in a statement released to People on Thursday.

“We thank God for our blessing,” she told the magazine.

Rumours of a pregnancy began swirling after Jackson decided to postpone her world tour in April to focus on “planning” a family with her husband, Wissam Al Mana.
