Katy Perry has confirmed she is expecting her first child with fiance Orlando Bloom, 43, via an Instagram live. The US singer revealed the news in the music video for her latest single, Never Worn White.
The singer announced that she and Orlando Bloom, 43, are expecting after three years together. “Let’s call it a reveal – there’s a lot that will be happening me this summer. Not only will I be giving birth — literally,” she confirmed while snacking on dried mangos, adding that she and Orlando are “very excited” about the news.
“Go watch the music video to watch what’s very true,” she continued, referencing the on-display bump in the video.
The romantic ballad appears to have been inspired by her relationship with British actor Bloom. Perry, dressed in a white dress, sings “see us in 60 years with a full family tree”.
The video ends with a side-on shot of Perry cradling a baby bump.
Writing on Instagram, the pop star said: “I am excited, we’re excited, and happy. It’s probably the longest secret I’ve ever had to keep.”
California-born Perry got engaged to Pirates of the Caribbean star Bloom on Valentine’s Day last year.
She was married to British TV presenter Russell Brand for two years from 2010. Perry wore a grey wedding dress for the ceremony.
Bloom was previously married to Australian model Miranda Kerr, and they share a son, Flynn.
