Janet Jackson has kept a low profile ever since she announced that she was trying to have a baby. The reason why the singer has been in hiding may be due to medical reasons and significant weight gain.
According to OK!, the 50-year-old superstar is on bed rest. A source tells the magazine that the singer “has ballooned to 250 pounds" and she's “at risk for serious complications.” The source adds, “This pregnancy is doing a number on her" and says that the singer has been struggling with being seen in public.
Husband Wissam Al Mana is reportedly at her side.
In May, a source told E! News that Janet and Al Mana were working with a fertility specialist. As we reported, according to the Southern California Center for Reproductive Medicine, women over the age of 45 have less than a 1% chance of getting pregnant using their own eggs. If a woman over that age becomes pregnant using her own eggs, the risk of a miscarriage increases greatly.
We wish Janet a safe and healthy pregnancy!
