Pregnant with twins and embroiled in a dispute over her 5-year-old son, Mindy McCready wants a breather from all of the sudden attention.

"She and the father have been enjoying the pregnancy out of the spotlight," a rep for the troubled country singer, 36, tells PEOPLE of her client who she says is six months along.

"Although they are excited about the baby news, they would like to [keep it] private at this time as much as they can."

This could prove difficult for McCready, whose pregnancy was revealed after a court ordered her to return 5-year-old son Zander to the Cape Coral, Fla., home of McCready's father, who has custody of the child. McCready has visitation.

Getting cleared of her latest drama is the top priority at the moment for McCready, who is wary of discussing her pregnancy.

"Until all of the other dust settles, it's not appropriate to focus on the twins," the rep says.

McCready's spokesperson did not comment on the father of the twins-to-be, but the singer reportedly confirmed to the New York Daily News that the dad is David Wilson, her music producer boyfriend of two years.
