Katy Perry announces her pregnancy with Orlando Bloom, she’s due this summer

Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom at arrivals fo...

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom announced their engagement last year, almost a year ago exactly (Orly proposed on Valentine’s Day 2019). They’ve been planning their wedding for a while, so… this isn’t really a shotgun wedding, and yet?? Katy Perry is knocked up! She debuted her baby bump in this cheesy music video for the song “Never Worn White.”

First of all, OH MY GOD. This song is terrible! I’m sure some people will insist on playing at their weddings but, again, OH MY GOD. Anyway, if the visual proof was not enough for you, Katy confirmed everything on her Instagram Stories last night. She told fans: “There’s a lot that’s happening this summer. Not only will I be giving birth, literally, and figuratively…to something you guys have been waiting for.” She thanked her fans for the all the well-wishes and she said: “I’m excited, we’re excited, and happy. It’s probably the longest secret I’ve ever had to keep. I thought I would tell you guys in the best way through a piece of music.”

She seems… odd in this video? Maybe she was just really tired and maybe the pregnancy is really hitting her hard. Anyway, as far as the wedding planning goes… maybe this is why she’s been so cryptic about the actual wedding plans, because she knew they would have to change because of her pregnancy? Still, Page Six claims that Katy and Orlando are planning their wedding to take place in Japan in June. Which… Coronavirus, etc, probably not a great idea, plus she’s likely due around that time too.

Anyway, congrats to Katy and Orlando! I kind of hope it’s a girl.

    Congratulations.
    I really don’t care for Orlando. He rubs me the wrong way.

    • WingKingdom says:

      He hit somebody with his car, then tried to run, but paparazzi chased him and caught the whole thing on tape. I haven’t liked him since then.

      • Bryn says:

        Lol thats such an old story. He was cleared of any wrong doing. Papparazzi waz chasing him..he swerved and hit another car, they continued to chase him when he got out of the car and was clearly dazed. Everyone was alright.

  2. OG Cleo says:

    *chewing intensifies* But that’s wonderful, congrats to them!

  3. Erinn says:

    I wonder if they’ll get married this summer too. She does seem weird in the video – she could just be super sleepy, but she almost seems like she’s been on gas at the dentist, or some of the allergy meds that make you drowsy lol.

    I assume she’s probably just tired, though.

    But my god that song is cheesy.

    • chicken tetrazzini! says:

      “you took my armor off, did it del-i-call-ey” and I was done. woof

    • Nahema says:

      Super cheesy song but then I think theres only one song of her’s I like.

      She was really odd in that live video and omg the eating is super annoying. I could hardly watch it because of the eating sounds. Does anyone else hate that? It’s like nails on a chalk board for me.

      Her music video made me think she’s trying to copy Beyonce when she was covered in flowers and pregnant with her twins.

  4. Laalaa says:

    She looks like Hilarie Burton in the video.
    Congratulations!
    I like the song. Cheesy, but I like it.

  5. Godwina says:

    Still one of the weirdest celebrity couples for me. Mixing DNA won’t change that.

    • smcollins says:

      Yeah, their pairing seems odd to me. I’ve always gotten the impression that he’s way more into her than her into him. I don’t see any spark between them, mostly awkwardness. Congrats to them all the same, though! From all accounts Orlando is a good dad and I’m sure Katy will a good mom.

      • enike says:

        well, Katy was engaged to John Mayer and married to Russel Brand

        I think Orlando is a safe choice to have a baby with

  6. T says:

    The song is not good, but mostly Katy is just not a talented singer in any way, shape or form. She’s entertaining in a performance way, but her voice…. No.

  7. Lucy2 says:

    Congrats to them.
    That song is awful. She doesn’t even lip sync well in the video!

  8. Veronica S. says:

    She’s done worse songs, but yeah, it’s….not great lol.

    Girl really knows how to pick them, though, doesn’t she? I don’t think we ever saw her significantly date a guy that didn’t scream f*ck boi. It’s not surprising she wound up with Orlando after their back and forth for so long. At least he’s finally landed a gig that pays well.

  9. LA says:

    Am I alone in thinking it’s an especially silly weird song given that she has, in fact, been a bride before?

    • MCV says:

      I bet she likes to pretend her relationship with Russell never existed lol

    • Hollz says:

      If I’m remembering correctly, her wedding dress was not white when she married Russell.

    • L says:

      Nope not alone… I was like, aww, cheeeeesy but sweet… I forgot about RB until someone mentioned it up thread and now I’m just like, huh? How incredibly inauthentic. If my partner released a love song about us that had one big ass lie in it, in the title and the chorus, I wouldn’t be able to get over it LOL. Id forever be like, but???? How.could.you.?? Was there no other way to express the same sentiment without lying?

      That chewing video ??? So gross. And she does look high.. she barely opens her eyes. She’s probably not but she looks it.

      I find her very annoying… Gimmicky… It’s like someone told her she’s not good enough as she is so she better be extra all the time. It would be nice to see her confident.

  10. Zapp Brannigan says:

    Are they getting married in Japan to honor her role as an ambassador for the British Asian Trust? Or just to dress up in Japanese cosplay? Or because it is “exotic” and think it makes them seem deep?

    • MCV says:

      Well you know she once said: “I am obsessed with Japanese people”. “I love everything about them and they are so wonderful as human beings.” “I’m so obsessed I want to skin you and wear you like Versace,”referring to a Japanese person she said she was obsessed with.

  11. MCV says:

    The video has very strong Midsommar vibes

    • Originaltessa says:

      Yeah. She chose a Midsommar theme for the video of her cheesy as f wedding ballad? Ok…

  12. Esmom says:

    Her appearance has changed so much I can barely recognize her in some photos. What happened?

    • Originaltessa says:

      I agree. She used to rock the black hair. I hate the platinum blonde. And it was worse when it was short. It was a good look for a lot of people, but not Katy, and she stuck with it for sooo long. I think Botox is the culprit mostly. She has an expressive face that can no longer express.

    • carmen says:

      I wouldn’t have recognized her if it weren’t for the caption.

    • FHMom says:

      I agree. She looks better with dark hair. Congrats to them both.

    • AnnaKist says:

      You’re right, Esmom. I haven’t been able to recognise her, without a caption, for a couple of years.

      I agree, FHMom, she looks much, much better as a brunette.

      But what about him? What happened?! He’s not ageing well.

  13. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Well this explains why they postponed the wedding. She didn’t want to be pregnant walking down the aisle. Congrats to them both.

  14. L says:

    Trying too hard. Copying Beyoncé. Lame.

  15. Marjorie says:

    This just seems sweet to me – they love each other. Cheese aside.

  16. Wamamax3 says:

    I tried to watch her little Live video but the CHEWING—be warned if you can’t stand the noise of people chewing and eating with their mouths open. Ugh I’m shuddering. She also is super annoying in it?? Not gonna watch the music vid since it’s literal clickbait with the “reveal.”
    I’ve never liked her since a clip I saw of her with…maybe David Blaine? Some street magician who did a trick with her and she was so fake and disingenuous and tried to have witty banter and it all rang so false.
    Not gonna hate on a pregnancy or wedding…happy for them, but I don’t have to like her.

    • Andrew’s Nemesis says:

      *Shudders* Thank you for the warning; I’d rather hit myself repeatedly in the face with a garden rake than listen to people chewing, or (cringe) see food going round in someone’s horrible mouth like a washing machine…

    • amiloo says:

      Wish I’d read the comments first!!!

  17. Harla says:

    Congratulations!!

  18. Mrs. Peel says:

    “Not only will I be giving birth, literally, and figuratively…to something you guys have been waiting for”. Speak for yourself – literally no one has been ‘waiting for’ this news. It will be the dullest baby in history.

  19. Case says:

    This is an awful song, and all I could think was “wow if Taylor Swift announced a pregnancy through a music video she’d be hated for it.”

  20. amiloo says:

    Welp, wish I hadn’t hit play on her Twitter video. Ugh, disgusting.

  21. Marika says:

    Have we considered the possibility she might have been replaced with Emily Blunt? She looks so effing much like her in this video it is mind blowing. I always had Hilary Burton vibes for her but there is only Emily for me after this video.

  22. Ali says:

    Orlando Bloom is not hot but somehow Legolas is smoking hot. 🤷‍♀️

  23. Wisca says:

    Congratulations to two people who are getting married, love each other, and are having a child.

  24. DP says:

    She seems wasted to me!
    The chewing with her mouth open while talking…
    The way she’s rambling…
    Her eyes…
    What’s going on?
    I hope I’m wrong!

    • Snowslow says:

      Just pregnant brain and tiredness probably.
      A friend of mine, when she was pregnant was so tired and air headed that she told “I wish people just waved and nodded at me instead of talking. I don’t get anything’.
      That’s exactly how I felt.
      However, it did not make me chew with my mouth open and speak at the same time. Ever.

  25. Ruyana says:

    The facial hair makes it look like he has no chin.

  26. Renee says:

    What the HELL song is this? It’s terrible……

  27. Cherryl says:

    I’m happy for her but he seems like a douchebag. Let’s not forget how he cheated and she took him back for some reason.

  28. Suzieq359 says:

    Not really a fan. She seemed OK at first but something has always seemed off. Then the way she treated those nuns didn’t sit well with me. Wonder what her super religious parents think of this. They already said the devil got ahold of her.

    She doesn’t really look well. Pregnancy may really be kicking her tail.

  29. mina says:

    Couldn’t watch the whole video and fast forward to the end. Awful video, but I do like the last shot showing her belly. Maybe because I am pregnant, but I do think the lightning and her dress looked pretty.

  30. Whatnow says:

    I’m showing my age here but I didn’t think you could bleach your hair or Diet when you were pregnant? Also you have to skip Botox do you not?

    • Yeahbutt says:

      I believe dark pigment is more toxic than bleach. Plus there are so many toxins in our culture, no one can be perfect. To each her own.

    • Wifaaa says:

      Eating mango is amazingly healthy! If there’s any time to eat well, it’s pregnancy. Many indulge, and that’s fine, but as long as you aren’t in a caloric deficit, you’re all right. (I assume you mean caloric deficit when you talk about dieting, not the act of eating whole, real food. Real food of plants, grains, fats and protein are a fantastic diet for anyone, whether trying to gain or lose or maintain!) :)

  31. Sass says:

    I’m so boggled by this couple.

    Also I’ve never been in to her music so I believe you when you say it’s terrible. I won’t even try listening. Everything she does is…meh at best. A couple earlier hits were fine but she just in every way fails to impress me.

    Congrats on the baby though! Maybe it’ll mellow her out. I feel like she’s a nice person who should not be famous lol
