Janet Jackson is ''doing well'' with her pregnancy.

The 'That's The Way Love Goes' singer - who is expecting her first child with husband Wissam Al Mana - broke her Twitter silence to tell her fans she appreciates their ''love and prayers''.

She wrote on the microblogging site: ''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 (sic)''

Janet - who officially confirmed her pregnancy back in October - has reportedly been suffering from bad morning sickness.

A source said: ''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. She is doing OK and resting until she is due. She is aware of complications, but as of now doctors say she is OK ...

''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.''

Meanwhile, Janet's older brother Jermaine recently said he believes his sibling will be a perfect mother to her child.

He shared: ''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.'''
