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

Janet Jackson has been on a hiatus for the past couple of months, since she announced that she'd be postponing her Unbreakable: World Tour. Within the past weeks, photos have surfaced of the singer shopping in London with an apparent baby bump, and today (Oct. 12) Janet Jackson officially confirmed her pregnancy in an exclusive photo for People.

"We thank God for our blessing," the 50-year-old star told People in an exclusive interview for their forthcoming issue, out this Friday.

Earlier this year, the "Burn It Up" crooner took to Twitter to inform fans that she and her husband, Wissam Al Mana, would be "planning our family" and needed to delay the tour so she can "rest up." Sources close to Jackson also previously announced that, "She is super excited about her pregnancy and is doing extremely well."
