Janet Jackson cannot wait to be a mom.

“She is super excited about her pregnancy and is doing extremely well,” a source close to the Jackson family tells PEOPLE. “She actually feels very good about everything.”

Jackson, 50, has kept a low profile since news of her pregnancy broke in May.

But the mom-to-be was spotted browsing baby buys at London’s Back in Action furniture store on Tuesday, keeping her baby bump under wraps in sweatpants, a black sweater and a matching scarf.

In June, her brother Tito Jackson confirmed she was expecting her first child with husband Wissam Al Mana, 41.

“She’s doing very well,” he told PEOPLE. “She’s taking it easy. [She’s] hoping for a healthy baby.”

News of her pregnancy came after the star released a video in April apologizing to fans for canceling her Unbroken tour, while also alluding to her baby on the way.

“We’re in the second leg of the tour, and there actually has been a sudden change,” Jackson said in the clip. “I thought it was important that you be the first to know. My husband and I are planning our family. So I’m going to have to delay the tour.”

Jackson and the Qatari businessman were married in 2012 in a private ceremony.
