We'll cut straight to the chase—Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are pregnant! The singer made the bombshell announcement in her music video for her newest single "Never Worn White," which dropped March 5, 2020. But nearly a month after revealing the news, Perry and Bloom have another detail to share: They're expecting a baby girl!
Perry posted the gender reveal to Instagram on April 3, which appeared to be quite messy! The photo shows a beaming Bloom covered in pink frosting along with the caption, "💕 it’s a girl 💕."
Last month Perry used her latest single, which was an ode to her fiancé Bloom, to share the shocking news. In the music video, Perry sings lyrics like, "Thank God that you were man enough to come/Answer my mamma's prayers/You asked the question, I said, 'Yes'/But I'm scared," most definitely talking about her romance with Bloom.
In the chorus, Perry cries, "Cause I've never worn white/But I wanna get it right/Yeah, I really wanna try with you/No, I've never worn white/But I'm standin' here tonight/Cause I really wanna say 'I do.'" The phrase "never worn white" refers to Perry's previous marriage to Russell Brand, whom she wed in India while wearing an unconventional gray grown. We imagine her second trip down the altar will be more traditional than her first—white wedding dress included!
Throughout the video, Perry is seen standing in an ethereal setting wearing a white gown and covered in a luscious floral gown and floral headpiece. The last few seconds pan out on a pregnant Perry embracing her growing baby bump.
After the video premiered, Perry took to Instagram Live to elaborate on the news. "There's a lot that will be happening this summer," she told her fans. "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."
Bloom and Perry were first linked in 2016 after meeting at a Golden Globes after-party. They broke up briefly in 2017 but quickly got back together a few months later. Bloom proposed to Perry on Valentine's Day in 2019 with a unique flower-shaped ruby engagement ring. The parents-to-be planned to tie the knot in March but had to postpone their plans due.
