Katy Perry met Orlando Bloom after she came out of a heartbreaking divorce and now she is all set to start a family with him.
Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom found each other after many heartbreaks and failed relationships. Naturally, they wanted to be more careful this time but when love takes over, you ought to leave some things to fate and live in the moment. But as it turns out, besides living in the moment, the couple was also planning their future together.
In her recent music video Never Worn White, Perry announced that she is pregnant, in the most surreal way. The last few seconds of the video showed her cradling her baby bump, confirming what fans have been speculating all along: she's expecting!
After the news broke, a source spoke to PEOPLE about her pregnancy and revealed that the couple is expecting a baby girl and they couldn't be happier. “They are both so excited about having a baby. They are also ecstatic that it’s a girl,” the source says. “They love that they have this amazing, positive thing to focus on right now. It’s such a happy distraction for them.”
The source added that the American Idol judge is "feeling good" amid isolation but she is hoping that the ongoing pandemic eases out before her delivery date.
“Along with so many other people, they stay home. They both try to exercise and eat well so they can stay healthy,” the source said. “Katy really hopes everything has calmed down with the virus by the time the baby will be born this summer.”
The source continued, “She tries not to stress about the birth, but she definitely thinks about it a lot.”
The Roar hitmaker had taken to Instagram to reveal the gender of her unborn child with an adorable picture of The Pirates of the Caribbean star covered in what looks like pink cake frosting.
Earlier PEOPLE reported that Perry and Bloom were planning to exchange vows in Japan but had to postpone it due to the global health emergency. However, she was very excited about walking down the aisle pregnant. "It was all set for Japan with 150 guests," an insider told the outlet. "Katy was actually really excited about walking down the aisle pregnant."
Perry and Bloom met each other in 2016 and after dating on and off for three years, Bloom proposed marriage to her in 2019, in the grandest way possible. In a conversation with Jimmy Kimmel on his show, she revealed that he proposed to her in a helicopter. She said, “I got on a helicopter and he asked me to marry him, and then we landed on this building and then went downstairs and my family and friends were there and the most flowers you’ve ever seen." She added, "It’s like when Kanye does that for Kim, you’re like, ‘Oh my God!' And I was like, ‘Oh my God!'”
While the couple is very much in love with each other and is all set to start a family together, they are careful about not repeating the things that didn't work out in their previous relationships. Apart from being a couple crazy in love, they are also mature and want to take things one step at a time.
During an appearance on Today, Bloom who has also been through a failed relationship earlier said, “It’s important to me that we are aligned—I’ve been married and divorced and I don’t want to do it again... And we’re both fully aware of that. She’s remarkable and so I’m always so impressed with that and I’m encouraged.”
The 35-year-old singer, on the other hand, revealed the one important feature that keeps her relationship with Bloom sane. She highlighted the importance of "space" to keep a relationship healthy. "One thing that’s going very well in my current relationship—yes, I did secure the ring—one thing I have noticed that is really helpful [is] giving each other a little space," she said.
Lastly, may we add that we can't wait to meet the couple's little princess? We also wish Kary Perry and Orlando Bloom all the very best for their wonderful life ahead.
