Janet Jackson has a message for her fans.
The 50-year-old mother-to-be took to Twitter to drop a note to fans about her health for the first time since it was revealed that she is expecting her first child with her husband, Wissam Al Mana.
“Hey you guys.. It’s been awhile.. but I’m still listening.. I feel your love and prayers.. Thank you.. and I’m doing well.. Al Hamdu lillah,” she wrote, ending the tweet with an Arabic phrase that means “praise be to God.”
Jackson has been completely silent on social media since news of her pregnancy broke in August.
Earlier this year, Jackson surprised fans when she announced that she was taking time off to plan her family with Al Mana. According to E! News, Jackson’s pregnancy “hasn’t been the easiest.”
She has been ordered to rest.
“The doctors said she is doing well and [told her] just to take it easy,” a source told E!. “She is due very, very soon,” and “can’t wait to have the baby.”
