Katy Perry announces sex of child with Orlando Bloom, and it's a ...
Surprise! Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are having a girl.
The 35-year-old pop star revealed the sex of her child by sharing a sweet picture of Bloom to Instagram.
"It's a girl," Perry captioned the post alongside a photo of her fiance's face covered in light-pink icing. The "American Idol" judge also tagged the location of her photo as "Girls Run the World."
The couple announced they were expecting their first child together in March when Perry showed off her growing baby bump in the final moments of the music video for her new single "Never Worn White," which was Perry's first song of 2020.
During the dreamy video, Perry donned an elegant white gown fit for a bride and wore a bouquet of flowers while singing a love song to Bloom. The singer opened up about overcoming her apprehension to love and marriage in the ballad:
I've never worn white, no
But I really wanna try with you
Yeah, I've never worn white
But I wanna get it right
'Cause you really wanna say "I do"
'Cause I do
Her angelic glow amplified when she cradled her stomach with both hands and sang, "See us in 60 years with a full family tree (I do)."
After the music video premiered, Perry confirmed on Instagram Live that she's going to have a "jam packed summer" because she will be "giving birth…literally" to both a child and a new album. On Twitter, she added, "omg so glad I don’t have to suck it in anymore."
Though the announcement came as a surprise to her fans, Perry said the pregnancy was no shock.
"Well, it wasn't on accident," she said in an interview with Sirius XM last month. "I'm so grateful for everything that I have been able to do and achieve and all the goals that I've been able to kind of check off my list and dreams, and the life I've lived thus far, and I think I've just been trying to create this space in my own life where I'm not running myself too ragged and like... creating space for something new to happen like this."
