Janet Jackson is just weeks away from becoming a mum, and she has finally confirmed the news.

The singer was widely believed the be pregnant back in April, when she cancelled her Unbreakable World Tour at short notice, telling fans she had to take a break to focus on “planning a family” with her new husband.

Six months on, Janet today announced her pregnancy officially, via a photoshoot with People magazine, in which she poses with a large baby bump.

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

In April, the singer told fans she was on “doctor’s orders” to rest up, and explained she wouldn’t be able to continue with the second leg of her tour, which included a gig at Dublin’s 3Arena on April 2nd.

“There actually has been a sudden change,” she said via a video clip at the time. “I thought it was important that you be the first to know. My husband and I are planning our family. So I’m going to have to delay the tour. Please, if you can try and understand it’s important that I do this now. I have to rest up, doctor’s orders. I have not forgotten about you. I will continue the tour as soon as I possibly can.”

It’s thought the singer could be due as soon as next month. Janet and Qatari businessman Wissam Al Mana married in 2012 in a private ceremony.
