Jackson made the announcement with a photo revealing her baby bump for the first time in People magazine.

In April, rumours swept Hollywood after Jackson postponed her ‘Unbreakable’ world tour.

During that time, Jackson fed fuel to the fire when she added a short video on Twitter saying husband, Wissam Al Mana, “were planning a family.”

Then in June, brother Tito Jackson told People his sister was “hoping for a healthy baby.”

And finally adding the last bit of speculation, Jackson released her latest single from ‘Unbreakable,’ called “Damn Baby.”

“We thank God for this blessing,” Jackson told People.

Congrats to Ms. Janet Jackson!

In other news, Bill Cosby has lost his latest effort to have criminal sex-assault charges thrown out during an appeal in Pennsylvania.

Cosby’s lawyers argue Andrea Constand’s, the accuser, lack of testimony at the preliminary trial did not allow them to confront her.

Under Pennsylvania law, prosecutors are allowed to use hearsay testimony from police during a pretrial hearing, and the state Superior Court denied Cosby’s appeal on Wednesday.

Defence lawyer Brian McMonagle says he hopes to join a related appeal being heard by the state of Supreme Court.

Cosby is set for trial in June on charges that he drugged and molested Constand in 2004. He has pleaded not guilty.

And in sports news, Ronda Rousey is gearing up for her big comeback in the octagon, which is officially set for December.

On Dec., 30th Rousey will take on Amanda Nunes for the title at UFC 207 in Las Vegas.

This will be Rousey’s first return since losing her undefeated title against Holly Holmes in November 2015.

Super excited to see her back on her feet and getting back in the ring!
