Baby on the way! Janet Jackson shows off her baby bump

The 50-year old singer is expecting her first child

Finally! Singer Janet Jackson was seen in public for the first time since she confirmed her pregnancy a few days ago. The singer was spotted on the streets of London taking a short stroll with her husband Qatar Wissam Al Manna. In the photos, we see the sister of the late 'King of Pop' with a wide gray skirt, a black sweater and headband, making a few purchases.

Recently, Janet confirmed what international media speculated: the singer is expecting a baby for the first time. "We are grateful to God for our blessing," said the 50 year old star, who is married to Al Mana since 2012. The rumors about her pregnancy began last April when she suspended her tour, which she justified saying she had family plans but without revealing if the stork was coming or not.

Through social media, Jackson shared the plans she had with her husband. "I thought it was important you be the first to know. My husband and I are planning a family so I'm going to have to delay the tour," she told her followers in a video posted on Twitter. "Please, if you can, try and understand it's important that I do this now, I have to rest up, doctor's orders, but I have not forgotten about you, I will continue the tour as soon as I possibly can," she said in the same clip.

For some time, the singer wanted to start a family. In 2009, soon after she ended her relationship with Jermaine Dupri, she told Harper's Bazaar. "Sure, I'd adopt. And I think that if I'm really supposed to have kids, it will happen, if that's God's plan for me."
