Janet Jackson has been seen only once since she announced she and her husband, Wissam Al Mana, wanted to start a family. That was her reason for delaying her world tour. Fans were disappointed that the Unbreakable world tour was postponed, but they are happy for the 50-year-old singer and her 41-year-old husband. The one time when she was seen she was bundled up, and no one could see her baby bump. She has been keeping a low profile while she and her husband stayed in their Malibu mansion all summer long. They have definitely kept out of sight of the public and the paparazzi. 

Earlier this month, it was reported that magazines are willing to pay large sums of money for Janet to pose in the nude so people could see that she really is pregnant because they are still not convinced that she is.

They are speculating that she is using a surrogate because of her age. 

Doctor's order for Janet

There are a couple of reasons the expectant mother hasn't been seen out and about. She has reportedly been following her doctor's order and is on bed rest during this phase of her pregnancy. Another reason is that she has allegedly gained over 100 pounds and is weighing close to 250 pounds. She doesn't want her fans to see how huge she is. It is not unusual for women to gain an excessive amount of weight while they are pregnant. However, some women gain more than others. Whether Janet has gained that much weight or not, her fans wish the best for her and her family. 

Bed rest is sometimes recommended

Sometimes doctors recommend that pregnant women stay home on bed rest because there could be complications later on during childbirth. At Janet's age, she is being sensible to follow her doctor's orders. Bed rest is sometimes prescribed only as a safeguard.

That is probably the case with the That's the Way Love Goes singer. So far, there is no word about Janet's due date or the sex of the baby. When her brother, Tito Jackson, was interviewed by Wendy Williams in June, he indicated that Janet said it didn't matter. She is just hoping for a healthy baby.
