The 50-year-old pop star is pregnant for the first time ever!

News of Janet Jackson’s pregnancy first broke out in soon after she announced on Twitter that she was postponing her Unbreakable World Tour in May. But it wasn’t until this week that the pop star confirmed the news with an exclusive photo shoot with People.

“We thank God for our blessing,” the 50-year-old star said.

This is Jackson’s first pregnancy.

According to Us Weekly, Jackson and her husband, Qatari business magnate Wissam Al Mana, met in 2010 at a hotel opening in Dubai. The low-profile couple didn’t announce their marriage until 2013a year after it actually happened. In an exclusive statement to Entertainment Tonight, the couple said that they had gotten married in a “quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony” in 2012.

“I’m getting older and I feel more settled,” Jackson told Us Weekly. “We have a deep bond, a deep connection.”
