Janet Jackson is taking a break from dancing. The 50-year-old singer, who is pregnant with her first child with husband Wissam Al Mana, is “on bed rest” per her doctors’ orders, a source tells Us Weekly.

“She’s where all of her doctors are,” the insider adds. “But she had taken her mother out to lunch a few weeks ago.”

Jackson hasn’t made any public appearances since news broke of her pregnancy earlier this year. She’s also been fairly silent on social media, sharing only music-related news.

Us Weekly confirmed in May that the “Unbreakable” singer and her 41-year-old billionaire businessman hubby were expecting their first child together. A few weeks earlier, Jackson postponed her Unbreakable World Tour to start planning a family.

“We’re in the second leg of the tour and there actually has been a sudden change,” the entertainer told fans in a video message on April 6. “I thought it was important that you would be the first to know. My husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour. Please, if you can, try and understand that 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.”

Jackson’s brother Jermaine later told Us Weekly he’s excited for his younger sister to finally become a mom, and assured Us she’s “feeling fine.”

“She’ll be a great mother because she is very tough, very strict,” the former Jackson 5 singer told Us on May 12. “I tell her, ‘If you need any parenting skills or any baby skills, let me know, because I’m the best diaper changer there is on this planet, still to this day.’”

Janet secretly married Al Mana in 2012, but didn’t confirm the news until 2013.
