Janet Jackson had recently confirmed that she is pregnant. The 50-year-old singer, who is the younger sister of the late Michael Jackson, is expecting her first child with billionaire businessman Wissam Al Mana.

On 20 October, Janet was spotted in public for the first time since announcing her pregnancy, wearing full Islamic dress. The Unbreakable hitmaker covered her growing baby bump in a burka, and teamed it up with baggy pants and boots. Janet walked hand in hand with Mana through the streets of London, and were spotted checking out children's clothes at a boutique.

The singer is said to have converted to Islam after getting married to Mana in 2012. This is third marriage for Janet, who was previously wed to James DeBarge and René Elizondo, Jr.

Meanwhile, speculation that she is pregnant started in April, when she postponed her world tour. She later announced the pregnancy news to People in a statement: "We thank God for our blessing."

In 2009, Janet had opened up about her desire to have children to Harper's Bazaar. She said: "Sure, I'd adopt and I think that if I'm really supposed to have kids, it will happen, if that's God's plan for me."

Meanwhile, Mana had gushed about his wife and their wedding back in 2012. He told Harper's Bazaar Arabia: "She is a very special and talented woman who never ceases to amaze me. My father was a very humble and down to earth man, and was known for being very honest and trustworthy. I think a man's dream woman changes as he goes through different stages in his life. I'm fortunate to be dating my dream woman now."
