Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are expecting their first child together

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 rumors 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 Dark Horse singer also joked on Twitter that she’s ‘so glad I don’t have to suck it in anymore… or carry around a big purse’. Metro reported.

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.

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are planning to marry in June, Page Six has learned.

According to Page Six, the pair are hoping to have their ceremony in Japan — which might be difficult to pull off if the coronavirus outbreak continues. (The country is already considering postponing this summer’s Olympic Games in Tokyo because of the disease).

Throughout her career, Perry has won five American Music Awards, fourteen People's Choice Awards, four Guinness World Records, a Brit Award, and a Juno Award. In September 2012, Billboard dubbed her the "Woman of the Year". From May 2010 to September 2011, the singer spent a record-breaking total of 69 consecutive weeks in the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100.

Teenage Dream became the first album by a female artist to produce five number-one Billboard Hot 100 singles, and the second album overall after Michael Jackson's Bad. In the United States, she has accumulated a total of nine number-one singles on the Billboard Hot 100, her most recent being "Dark Horse", and holds the record for having 18 consecutive number-one songs on the Dance Club Songs chart.
