Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, who are expecting their first child together, are reportedly planning to tie the knot in Japan this June (2020).
Hot on the heels of the singer announcing her pregnancy in her Never Worn White video, which dropped on Wednesday night (March 4, 2020), Page Six revealed the 35-year-old is planning to wed Orlando before their baby arrives this summer.
According to the New York Post’s gossip column, the pair is hoping to exchange vows in Japan – a country they both love. However, their dream may not be able to become reality due to the coronavirus spread. While the country’s capital Tokyo was due to be hosting the Olympic Games this summer, they are considering postponing the international sporting event because of the outbreak of the infectious disease.
It still seems likely though that Katy and Orlando will become husband and wife before the arrival of their first baby together, considering that the I Kissed A Girl star’s parents, Keith and Mary Hudson, are both Christian preachers.
During an interview with Vogue Australia in 2018, Katy insisted that she is still as religious as she ever was, although she explores things in a different way these days.
“My mom has prayed for me my entire life, hoping I’d come back to God,” she said. “(But) I never left Him, I was just a little bit secular, I was more materialistic and more career-driven. But now that I’m in my 30s, it’s more about spirituality and heart wholeness.”
The baby will be the first for Katy, while Orlando is already a father to nine-year-old son Flynn with ex-wife Miranda Kerr.
Following the announcement of her pregnancy, celebrities including Cardi B and Katharine McPhee were among those rushing to congratulate the American Idol judge.
