Katy Perry reveals she’s pregnant with fiancé Orlando Bloom’s child in beautiful ballad
Katy Perry has revealed that she is pregnant in the music video for her new song “Never Worn White”, and said a new album is on the way.
The pop star made the big news public in the final shot of the music video where she is filmed standing in side profile cradling her baby bump.
In the song, Perry sings about marrying her fiancé Orlando Bloom and reveals her hopes and fears for the future.
Katy Perry confirmed that a new album is on the way following her pregnancy announcement.
Following the release of the song, she hinted that a new album is on the way in an Instagram post, writing: “Let’s just say it’s gonna be a jam packed summer… 🎶♥️”.
“Let’s call it a double-whammy,” she said.
“I am excited, we’re excited, and happy. It’s probably the longest secret I’ve ever had to keep.”
The new song was written in Santa Barbara and Perry said it is “super vulnerable”.
“It’s very honest, it’s about surrendering to love and all that you go through when you’re about to commit to someone,” she said.
I am excited, we’re excited, and happy. It’s probably the longest secret I’ve ever had to keep.
Perry also referenced her first marriage to Russell Brand, noting: “The truth is I have never worn white, because the time before this, 10 years ago, I wore dove grey. So let’s just say it’ll be my first time wearing white.”
Perry later joked on Twitter: “Omg so glad I don’t have to suck it in anymore or carry around a big purse lol.”
Fans of the singer-songwriter have gone into overdrive on Twitter since the new song landed.
Katy Perry stans have collectively assumed the role of a proud mom on Twitter following the “Roar” singer’s news.

Katy Perry announces her pregnancy with a beautiful ballad & music video and Lady Gaga announces a stadium world tour. The girls really said enough politics, let's give the gays what they want.

It's Wednesday and we already got new songs from Dixie Chicks, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga. It's a good week to be gay.

The news comes after Perry released a string of singles last year but refused to be drawn on whether or not she was planning to release an album.
