L-R: Sherri Shepard, Janet Jackson, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Barbara Walters; ABC/STEVE FENNFor the first time Janet Jackson revealed a photo of her baby bump, in a photo exclusively published by People magazine.
“We thank God for our blessing,” she tells the magazine.
The artist successfully kept away from the spotlight during her pregnancy, until a couple of weeks ago when she was spotted shopping at a baby furniture store in London.
Jackson told fans in April that she would take a break from performing, putting off her Unbreakable World Tour, in order to start a family with her hubby, Wissam Al Mana.
Jackson’s pregnancy marks the first child for the couple.
