As celeb-watchers and fans speculate on whether or not Janet Jackson is pregnant, the pop star has delivered a different type of baby surprise: the official video for “Dammn Baby.”
Jackson leads a slick collection of dancers in the new black and white clip, which she shared overnight with a tweet. “It’s all about Love,” she wrote.

“Dammn Baby” is lifted from Unbreakable, which opened at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart last year. Unbreakable is her seventh chart-topper and with the chart feat she became just the third act to achieve No. 1 albums in each of the last four decades.
Meanwhile, the Internet is abuzz with reports that Jackson is expecting her first child. Entertainment Tonight reported the news first, while E! News has cited a source saying Jackson had successfully worked with a fertility specialist and is in her second trimester of pregnancy. The pop star will turn 50 on May 16.
When asked for confirmation, Jackson’s rep directed Billboard to an announcement the singer made on April 6 via social media when she postponed the remainder of her Unbreakable World Tour. In the video, she said she and her husband, Qatari businessman Wissam Al Mana, 41, would be focusing on “planning our family.”
