Katy Perry has confirmed that she is expecting her first child with Orlando Bloom, announcing they are ‘excited and happy’ to start a family.
The 35-year-old singer sparked pregnancy rumours when she debuted the music video for her new song, Never Worn White, in which she appears cradling her baby bump.
Shortly after, Katy confirmed the pregnancy news in an Instagram Live and told her followers: ‘There’s a lot that’s happening this summer. Not only will I be giving birth, literally, and figuratively… to something you guys have been waiting for.
‘I’m excited, we’re excited, and happy. It’s probably the longest secret I’ve ever had to keep. I thought I would tell you guys in the best way through a piece of music.’
She added: ‘While it’s not the lead single, it’s a good way to start out. I had to reveal it [the pregnancy] at some point. It’s getting pretty obvious.’
The couple are yet to reveal the sex and due date of baby Bloom. While it’s the first child for Katy, Orlando, 43, is already father to nine-year-old son Flynn, whom he shares with ex-wife Miranda Kerr. He was married to the former Victoria’s Secret model from 2010 until 2013.
Perhaps the other exciting plan Katy referred to ‘this summer’ is her wedding.
The pair got engaged in February 2019 after Pirates of the Caribbean actor Orlando proposed on Valentine’s Day.
Katy recently opened up about their wedding preparation and insisted she’s actually been pretty calm throughout the process.
‘I call myself a “bridechilla” as opposed to a “bridezilla”,’ Katy told Stellar magazine.
She continued: ‘Orlando and I are united with our approach.
‘It’s not about the party it’s about the coming together of people who will hold us accountable when things get really hard. Those are just the facts when you’re with someone who challenges you to be your best self.’
Katy recently showed her fellow American Idol judges the exact spot where Orlando popped the question last year, bringing back fond memories for the singer.
Standing on a rooftop in Los Angeles with co-judges Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan, Katy said excitedly: ‘This is the actual rooftop, this is where Orlando and I got engaged. He asked me to marry him on a helicopter and we landed the helicopter actually on this rooftop. I just am feeling all the feelings.
‘Oh my God, I remember this awning. We were all out here. My whole family and friends, he had surprised me. Everyone was wearing matching sweaters. It was really sweet. It was so beautiful – all in this room.’
