She's back! Janet Jackson, who is pregnant with her first child at the age of 50, returned to Twitter for the first time since August to tell fans that she's "doing well."

"Hey you guys.. It's been awhile.. but I'm still listening," the music icon wrote on Saturday, November 19. "I feel your love and prayers.. Thank you.. and I'm doing well.. Al Hamdu lillah." (Alhamdulillah is an Arabic phrase meaning "praise be to God.")

Several Twitter users replied to Jackson's tweet to send messages of support. "Glad you're well. Keep shining Queen! Enjoy these well deserved blessings on your life. We love you!" one fan wrote, while another added: "I'm so eager to see and hear musically your new evolution as a mother. Your mini-me will be beautiful with big eyes."

Us Weekly confirmed in May that Jackson and her husband, Qatari business magnate Wissam Al Mana, were expecting a little bundle of joy. She has since kept a low profile, stepping out only a few times in recent weeks.

Last month, she took a trip to the florist, where she covered her growing baby bump in a loose black sweater and a long skirt.

Earlier this year, the "Control" singer surprised fans when she announced she was postponing her Unbreakable World Tour because she was planning a family.

"Janet is super excited," a source told Us of the mom-to-be in September. "She's doing great. She's so happy and her husband is so happy. Janet feels really strong and she's just so excited for the baby to come. She feels like this is one of the best things ever to happen to her!"
