Is everything okay with Janet Jackson? The pregnant singer was ordered by her doctors to remain on bed rest until she gives birth, as she has had many complications during her pregnancy.
Janet has reportedly struggled a bit while carrying a baby at 50 years old, and with not much longer to go before she gives birth, she’s now under “doctor’s orders to rest” until the baby arrives, a source told E! News. This is a result of the complications Janet has experienced, the insider said, and the best way to avoid any further issues is for her to stay off her feet as much as possible. But with no details on what Janet’s complications entailed, it’s easy for people to worry about her!
Never fear, though, Janet fans — the source said she’s doing just fine. “[Janet] is aware of complications, but as of now doctors say she is OK.” Phew!
This news comes just days after a report broke that Janet was ordered not to leave her house because of her high risk of “serious complications.” Part of these problems may be due to the weight Janet has gained while pregnant, as she has supposedly gained more than 100 lbs and reached the 250 lb mark. But it’s also the fact that Janet is 50 years old, which Dr. David Diaz explained to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY increases risk of hypertension (high blood pressure), and development of gestational diabetes.
It’s unclear whether Janet has experienced either of those during her pregnancy, but it’s definitely a positive thing for her to be on bed rest until she gives birth. Janet sounded so excited about having a baby when she announced she was “planning a family” with husband Wissam Al Mana in April, so we’re sure she’s going to take care of herself as doctor’s requested. We certainly hope it’s smooth sailing for Janet until she has her baby!
