Janet Jackson is 50 years old. And she’s pregnant for the first time. If you can’t reconcile those two facts in your mind, here are some visuals to help you along. The pop icon, who is expecting her first child with husband Wissam Al-Mana, was spotted shopping for baby gear in London this week, allowing for a first-ever peek at her blossoming bump:
Two things: first, Janet looks like she’s handling her pregnancy just fine, so take that you haters who said she was too old to have a baby. And second, she literally looks half her age. Clearly, pregnancy suits her!
According to Entertainment Tonight, who secured the photos, “Jackson arrived at the store in a chauffeured black Mercedes along with her bodyguard, her assistant and two others from her entourage. Jackson was greeted by staff, who shut the doors for her visit and seated her at a table to seemingly go over some of their merchandise. According to the eyewitness, she also strolled the store and took an interest in one of the prams.”
Congratulations, Miss Jackson. You’re an inspiration.
