Katy Perry is pregnant and KatyCats everywhere are officially freaking out! The singer dropped the big baby news in the music video for her new single, "Never Worn White," revealing she and fiancé Orlando Bloom will soon be parents to a little bundle of joy of their own!
The American Idol judge and her husband-to-be have been open about wanting children sooner rather than later ever since their engagement on Valentine's Day 2019. Bloom is already a father to a 9-year-old son Flynn from his marriage to Miranda Kerr, but this will be Perry's first baby.
For the full pregnancy announcement, as well as all the wild fan reactions to the "Firework" singer's big baby news, keep scrolling!
In the "Never Worn White" video, Perry looks stunning in a long white gown as well as all-floral attire as she sings a touching song about her relationship with Bloom, before revealing a long shot at her baby bump at the end.
"'Cause I've never worn white/ But I wanna get it right/ Yeah, I really wanna try with you," she sings. "No, I've never worn white/ But I'm standin' here tonight/ 'Cause I really wanna say, 'I do'"
Soon after the news broke, Perry took to her Twitter to confirm her pregnancy joking she was "so glad" she didn't have to "suck it in" or carry a large purse in front of her bump anymore.
