Katy Perry has announced she is pregnant with her first child.
On Thursday, Perry shared the video for her first piece of music in 2020, ‘Never Worn White’. Perry waited until the very end of the video to reveal that she and fiancé Orlando Bloom are expecting their first child this winter (their summer).

Despite the absence of a verbal confirmation in the music video itself, she uploaded an Instagram photo captioned, “Let’s just say it’s going to be a jam-packed summer”. During an Instagram Live shortly after, she officially broke the news.
Perry said, “There is a lot that will be happening this summer: we’re giving birth. Literally.
“We’re excited. It’s probably the longest secret we’ve had to keep. I wanted to tell you guys in the best way – through a piece of music.”
In her first interview since announcing the exciting news, Perry told SiriusXM radio host, Mike Piff, why she chose to share her news through her latest music video. While ‘Never Worn White’ isn’t the lead single in her yet-to-be-released record, the timing of the track was perfect.
“Honestly, I was getting way too fat to hide it, so I was like, ‘Well, I think this song would be a great reveal! Let’s start there’,” she laughed.
