Janet Jackson shows off her baby bump in London

New York — Months after saying she was planning a family, Janet Jackson has been spotted sporting an apparent baby bump.

The 50-year-old singer announced in April that she was postponing her tour because she planning a family with husband Wissam Al Mana, saying she was on "doctor's orders" to rest.

Pictures published online by Entertainment Tonight show Jackson leaving a baby-furniture store in London.

Watch the video here:

Jackson's brother, Tito, confirmed his sister's pregnancy in an interview with SiriusXM's Andy Cohen in June.

A source told Us Weekly magazine: ''Janet is super excited. She's doing great. Janet feels really strong and is just so excited for the baby to come. She feels like this is one of the best things ever to happen to her.''

The That's the Way Love Goes hitmaker - the sister of the late Michael Jackson - announced her pregnancy in May but hasn't been able to enjoy the transition into motherhood thus far as she's been on bed rest.

An insider said recently: ''She is doing OK and resting until she is due. 

''(Janet) is aware of complications, but as of now doctors say she is OK."

And, although she's still a little while off from meeting her baby, the brunette beauty and her spouse, whom she married in 2012, have already started thinking about names for the little one.

A source explained: "Her support system is extremely strong. She is taking things easy these days and is feeling well but not overdoing it in any capacity of her life. Janet is staying healthy for her and her baby.

"She's been praying for a child for a very long time. She's already in the process of thinking of baby names."

Janet's pregnancy shocked a lot of people - including her family - but her older brother Jermaine thinks she'll be the perfect mother to her child.

He said recently: "She'll be a great mother because she is very tough, very strict. But I tell her, 'If you need any parenting skills or baby skills, let me know because I'm the best diaper changer there is on this planet, still to this day."
