Jackson: "We thank God for our blessing”
Janet Jackson has officially confirmed what many already suspected, announcing her pregnancy to the public and describing her baby as “a blessing.”
The 50-year-old star had postponed her career to have a family with husband Wissam Al Mana. And although the two had kept the details privately, she was frequently spotted with a growing baby bump throughout the year.
Now she finally decided to comment about her status, telling People magazine: “We thank God for our blessing.”
Despite suffering from morning sickness, she is said to be very happy about the pregnancy.
An insider explained: “Janet is super excited. She’s doing great. Janet feels really strong and is just so excited for the baby to come. She feels like this is one of the best things ever to happen to her.”
The star has been mostly on bed rest and under the watchful eye of her doctors, leading her to think of a potential baby name.
A source stated: “Her support system is extremely strong. She is taking things easy these days and is feeling well but not overdoing it in any capacity of her life. Janet is staying healthy for her and her baby.
She’s been praying for a child for a very long time. She’s already in the process of thinking of baby names.”
Jermaine, the singer’s older brother, recently said he is sure she will be a perfect mom, adding: “She’ll be a great mother because she is very tough, very strict. But I tell her, ‘If you need any parenting skills or baby skills, let me know because I’m the best diaper changer there is on this planet, still to this day.'”
