Pregnant Janet Jackson on bed rest

Pregnant Janet Jackson on bed rest

Janet Jackson is on bed rest.

The 50-year-old singer - who is pregnant with her first child - has been ordered to take it easy by her doctor.

A source told E! News: "She is doing OK and resting until she is due.

"[Janet] is aware of complications, but as of now doctors say she is OK."

While Janet, who is married to Wissam Al Mana, 41, is on bed rest right now, she was feeling up to taking her mother Katherine, 86, out for lunch just a few weeks ago.

A source told Us Weekly: "She's where all of her doctors are. But she had taken her mother out to lunch a few weeks ago."

And Janet is determined to stay healthy and not "overdo it" during her pregnancy.

A source previously said: "Her support system is extremely strong. She is taking things easy these days and is feeling well but not overdoing it in any capacity of her life. Janet is staying healthy for her and her baby.

"She's been praying for a child for a very long time. She's already in the process of thinking of baby names."

Meanwhile, Janet's brother Jermaine recently revealed he thinks his sister will be a great mother.

He said: "She'll be a great mother because she is very tough, very strict.

"But I tell her, 'If you need any parenting skills or baby skills, let me know because I'm the best diaper changer there is on this planet, still to this day.'"

But the pregnancy news has been a shock to Jermaine because he still thinks of his little sister as "a baby".

He said: "My sister Janet is my baby. She is fine but she's having a baby. A baby having a baby. We look at her like our little baby and now she's grown and having a baby. I'm proud to be an uncle and I can't wait to see how this baby is going to look."
