Janet announced about having a baby last year when she was already 50 years old, prompting reports that she had a surrogate mother. However, she was photographed many times gaining weight due to her pregnancy and using layers of clothing in order to hide her growing baby bump.
The publication said that women pregnant during their late 40s should sleep and rest a lot, and be in a dark room away from electrical equipment. Just like younger expecting mothers, those who are in their late 40s should also eat regular meals but they are advised to eat organic foods. They should also avoid having coffee or alcohol and exercised lightly.
