Janet Jackson, who is believed to have converted to Islam, was spotted on 22 October for the first time dressed in Islamic style dress. The All for You singer is married to Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Manna since 2012 and the couple are expecting their first child together. Both of them are said to have initially met in 2010.

Photos published by the Mirror show the pair smiling and holding hands while taking a stroll through the streets of London. The couple were going through children's clothes at an upmarket boutique before stopping for lunch at a health food restaurant.

In April, after the 50-year-old singer cancelled her Unbreakable world tour, reports suggested that she was pregnant with her first child.

At that time Jackson in a video shared on Twitter said, "We are in the second leg of the tour and there's been a sudden change and I thought it was important you be the first to know. My husband and I are planning a family so I'm going to have to delay the tour. Please, if you can, try and understand it's important that I do this now, I have to rest up, doctor's orders, but I have not forgotten about you, I will continue the tour as soon as I possibly can."

Earlier this month, Jackson confirmed she was pregnant with her first child with a photo shoot for People magazine. In the photo, Jackson can be seen cradling her growing baby bump with a smile on her face. "We thank God for our blessing," the singer told the magazine.

"She is super excited about her pregnancy and is doing extremely well. She actually feels very good about everything," a source previously said about how Jackson's pregnancy has progressed over the last few months.

Jackson, who has sold over 100 million records, is widely regarded as one of the most successful female solo artists of all time. She was married twice before meeting her 41-year-old husband.
