American singer, songwriter, dancer and actress, Janet Jackson, has officially confirmed she is pregnant at the age of 50.janet-jackson

Janet is expecting her first baby with husband Wissam Al Mana. Mana is a 41-year-old Qatari business magnate operating in automotive distribution and services, real estate and investments, retail, food & beverage, engineering, technology, media and entertainment.

Operating over 300 outlets, Al Mana Group represents brands covering most areas of retail including luxury goods, beauty, fashion, home interiors, watches and jewellery.

The pop music icon shared a photo of her growing baby bump and mama-to-be glow on the HollywoodUnlocked instagram account.

Jackson, who has sold over 100 million records, has kept a mostly low profile during her pregnancy. It has been reported by some reputable sources that the American singer was experiencing a high-risk pregnancy and ordered to be on bed rest.

In April of this year, the superstar announced to the world she postponed her world tour to start her family.

Congratulations to Janet Jackson and Wissam Al Mana. I cannot begin to imagine the reality of raising a child at the age of 50 but clearly ‘You Want This‘. I would like to wish the happy couple all the very best.
