Food for two! Since she announced her pregnancy in March 2020, Katy Perry has talked about what she craves (and doesn’t dig) while expecting.
The expectant mother first opened up about her maternity appetite during an Instagram Live video she shot just after revealing her ‘Never Worn White’ music video, in which she debuted her growing baby bump. In that revealing behind-the-scenes look, the Grammy nominee, who is engaged Orlando Bloom, noted that her pregnancy is “probably the longest secret” she has ever had to keep. “I had to reveal it at some point,” she joked.
The American idol judge chose to share that she was expecting her first child with Bloom by rocking her belly in a white dress in the closing moments of the music video. She has since declared that this is the “right time” for her to become pregnant.
“I wasn’t ready a few years ago and I did the work to prepare,” she explained during a radio performance on “Fifi, Fev & Byron” in March. “So now I see a baby and it’s just time for me. It is the right time. ‘
The California native also noted that she would like the little one to arrive. “I’m that girl with the box [of] baby clothes before there was even a thought or even an Orlando Bloom, ”she continued. “I’m excited about that.”
Perry has long spoken of her desire to become a mother. When she was still married to actor Russell Brand, the singer ‘I Kissed a Girl’ did not limit the number of children she would have. “If it doesn’t hurt the first time, I keep dropping them out,” she said Ellen DeGeneres in November 2011.
In July 2014, after she and Brand broke up, she told Perry Rolling stone that she was willing to become a mother with or without a husband, explaining, “I don’t need a guy. It’s 2014! We live in the future; we don’t need anything. I don’t think I should, but we’ll see. I am not an anti-man. I love men. But there is an option if someone is not presenting. ‘
In October 2018, a source said Us weekly exclusive that the “Teenage Dream” singer and Bloom, her boyfriend at the time, wanted to have a child as soon as possible. The pirates of the caribbean star already shares a 9-year-old son, Flynn, with his ex-wife, Miranda Kerr.
Bloom, for his part, seems equally excited about adding to his offspring. “My babies are blooming,” the Brit captioned a photo of his prospective fiancé in a multicolored dress two days after the news of the pregnancy made headlines.
