Janet Jackson's doctors have asked her to spend some time off her feet. 

The 50-year-old singer is currently pregnant with her first child with husband Wissam Al Mana, and a source tells E! News she is now under "doctor's orders to rest" until the baby comes. 

"She is doing OK and resting until she is due for her baby," the insider explains. The latest development in her pregnancy comes after the mom-to-be experienced complications, according to the source.

Not to worry though, our insider tells us, "[Janet] is aware of complications, but as of now doctors say she is OK."

Until now, many of the details surrounding her pregnancy have been kept under wraps. Back in May, E! News reported that Jackson was preparing to start a family, an announcement that came a month after doctors ordered the performer to postpone her Unbreakable world tour.

At the time, a source told E! News that Janet was in the second trimester of her pregnancy and that she and her husband had been working with a fertility specialist for quite a while.

Janet's brother Tito Jackson explained on SiriusXM's Andy Cohen Live that neither the Grammy-winning artist nor Wissam knew if they are expecting a little boy or girl as of June, explaining that they are only "hoping for a healthy baby." Additionally, Tito shut down speculation that a surrogate was carrying the couple's child, adding that she's doing, "very well pregnant, very pregnant."
