All the rumors can finally be put to rest: singer Janet Jackson is pregnant.

ETonline is reporting that the pop singer, who cancelled the remainder of her 2016 Unbreakable tour via a video post to her Twitter account, is expecting her first child, with husband Wissam Al Mana.

“The baby news comes after the 49-year-old singer — who will turn 50 on May 16 — announced last month that she will be postponing her tour to start a family with husband Wissam Al Mana. “We’re in the second leg of the tour and there actually has been a sudden change,” Jackson explained in a video posted to Twitter on April 6. “I thought it was important that you be the first to know. My husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour.”

The postponed tour included a June 4 date at the Allstate Arena.
