Janet Jackson dropped a huge bombshell today on her family and friends, has confirmed: She is finally pregnant with her first child from billionaire husband, Wissam Al Mana!

A source close to the Jackson family told exclusively that "Janet is healthy and she and Wissam are looking forward to becoming parents."

Jackson, 49, recently cancelled her Unbreakable World Tour after undergoing surgery to remove a tumor in her throat.

Although fans were quick to speculate that her decision to put the tour on hold again had to do with her health, Radar was the first to report that was not the case.

Two weeks ago, a Jackson family insider told Radar at the time, "Janet's health crisis this year really made her much more aware of her age. She is approaching 50 and at this stage of her life all that she wants is to become a mother."

Although the Jackson family has been silent on the pregnancy news, Janet dropped a huge hint last night when posting to her Twitter, "Bang bang ya gon gon get it... #DammnBaby"
