Janet Jackson hasn’t kept her intentions to grow her family a secret per se. The 50-year-old singer made it very clear in a selfie video that she would be cancelling her Unbreakable Tour because she and her husband were planning a family.

It worked! And although her brother Tito spilled the beans in June that Janet was pregnant, and her baby bump made a debut a few weeks ago as she shopped for baby furniture, we’re just now hearing it straight from the source.

In an exclusive interview with People Magazine, complete with a photo of her growing belly, Miss Jackson confirmed the good news. Although the sister of Michael Jackson surely doesn’t need it, we’re guessing she got enough cash for a hefty college fund in exchange for that exclusive.
