Singer Katy Perry and her fiancé actor, Orlando Bloom are expecting a baby girl any day now. Perry announced her pregnancy in March 2020 when she released her music video, “Never Worn White.” Though she and Bloom had planned to tie the knot this year, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and life itself had other plans for the “Dark Horse” vocalist.

As she waits to welcome her little one into the world, Perry just shocked fans with a startling revelation about her pregnancy.

Just before dropping “Never Worn White,” Perry got on Instagram Live to tease her fans, aptly called the  “Katy Cats” about all of the massive changes in her life.

“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,” Perry said. “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. 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.”

At the end of the video, the American Idol judge can be seen wearing white and rubbing her belly.

Perry isn’t the only one anticipating her baby girl’s arrival. Bloom is also thrilled to have a little one on the way. The Lord of the Rings actor shares a 9-year-old son, Flynn, with this ex-wife, model Miranda Kerr.

“I’m excited,” he told Good Morning America. “It’s a magical time, you know when an angel pops into the planet, which is what it feels like for me.”I just love those quiet times at night when the world feels like it’s asleep and you’ve got a sleeping baby.”

Though the pair have had to put their wedding on hold, it appears that they have will have their hands full with other things.

Still, pregnancy has had some interesting side effects for Perry. Since we’re all still stuck in the house, Perry decided to entertain her fans on her Instagram stories with something she’s been experiencing. “You guys want to see something gross?” she quipped.

She then showcased a photo of her extremely swollen belly button which is now a fully distended belly button. Sometimes in pregnancy, a woman’s belly button turns inside out. According to Cleveland Clinic,

Sometimes a growing baby in the uterus can put so much pressure on a woman’s abdominal wall that her normally ‘innie’ belly button becomes an ‘outie,’ It typically happens in the second or third trimester of pregnancy, most commonly around 26 weeks.

Despite this very startling pregnancy side-effect, Perry is in great spirits. She finished off her series of Instagram stories asking,  “But do you guys want to see something gorgeous?” She then snapped a photo of her fully dolled up face, captioning this photo, “clickbait bish.”
