Pop superstar Janet Jackson has confirmed that she is pregnant with her first child at age 50 - and has the baby bump to prove it.
A portrait of the star, her face beaming as she stood on a beach with an unmistakably protruding belly, was published by People magazine on Wednesday (Oct 12).
The younger sister of late king of pop Michael Jackson stunned fans in April by halting a global tour and saying that she and her husband, Qatari tycoon Wissam Al Mana, were "planning our family."
Jackson had not said more since then but was recently spotted by paparazzi shopping at a baby store in London - and looking like she had the tell-tale bump.
She is however, not the first to have a baby at a later age.
