Psst. Did you hear? Janet Jackson IS pregnant after all. The extremely private youngest child of the Jackson family on Wednesday showed off her baby bump and confirmed what pretty much everyone in the world already knew. People magazine carried an exclusive photo of a smiling Jackson with her hand on her abdomen.

We thank God for our blessing.

The singer announced in April that she was postponing the second leg of her "Unbreakable" world tour indefinitely because she and her husband, Qatari business magnate Wissam Al Mana, were "planning our family." Since then, the star has kept a low profile, although she was photographed last month while furniture-shopping in London.
