Katy Perry is pregnant with her first child.
The 35-year-old singer announced the happy news that she and fiance Orlando Bloom are expecting a baby together in her Never Worn White music video, which she dropped on Wednesday night (March 4, 2020).
At the end of the video, the camera panned away and showed Katy cradling her growing bump.
In an Instagram Live after the video’s release, Katy told fans that the tot is due this summer.
“There’s a lot that will be happening this summer,” she grinned. “Not only will I be giving birth, literally, but also figuratively to something you guys have been waiting for. So let’s just call it a double whammy. It’s a two-for.
“I am excited. We’re excited and happy and it’s probably the longest secret I’ve ever had to keep. And I like to tell you guys everything but I knew I would tell you in the best way, which is through a piece of music because that’s… I guess that’s how I speak to you. That’s how we speak together to each other.”
Katy added that she’s been struggling with pregnancy cravings, and carries a bottle of hot sauce around with her wherever she goes. She also admitted she’s been eating “the same burrito for weeks on end.”
After announcing her pregnancy, Katy took to Twitter to tell her fans she was “so glad” she didn’t have to “suck in” her bump any more, adding: “or carry around a big purse lol.”
While the baby will be the first for Katy, Orlando, 43, is already father to nine-year-old son Flynn with ex-wife Miranda Kerr.
The couple’s pregnancy news comes after they celebrated the one-year anniversary of their engagement on Valentine’s Day last month (February 2020).
