Katy Perry is pregnant!
The pop star confirmed the big news during an Instagram Live session after the music video for her emotional new single “Never Worn White” premiered on YouTube. “There’s a lot that will be happening this summer, not only will I be giving birth — literally — but also figuratively something that you guys have been waiting for,” she said, referring to her upcoming album.
Perry noted that the pregnancy is probably the longest secret she has ever had to keep. She added that she and her fiancé Orlando Bloom are excited and happy to welcome their first child.
In the just-released video for “Never Worn White” Perry sings about her desire to get married and is shown cradling her stomach. Perry teased the song Wednesday on social media, debuting a brief clip that appeared to show a different shot of the singer holding her belly while wearing a white dress, which sparked fan speculation over a potential pregnancy.
“I’ve never worn white, but I want to get it right, yeah I really want to try with you no,” Perry sings in the song’s chorus. “I’ve never worn white, but I m standing here tonight, ’cause I really want to say ‘I do.'”
Upon sharing the video to Instagram, Perry promised fans it would be a “jam packed summer” but she did not specify what she meant.
