In April, Janet Jackson announced that she and husband, Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana, were “planning [their] family.” Since that announcement, Jackson’s reps have declined to confirm any reports that she is imminently expecting a child, though paparazzi and tabloid gossip editors have made an effort to piece together the full story. Jackson has now confirmed that she is pregnant at age 50, People reports.

Janet’s initial statement was ambiguous. In 2016, “planning a family” can mean any number of things—adoption, surrogacy, pregnancy—leading to confusion and curiosity about what the “plan” entailed. The magazine published a photo of a serene Janet wearing bold spectacles and a turtleneck dress on a beach.

The superstar issued a simple statement to accompany the photo: “We thank God for our blessing.”
