Katy Perry knows how to keep a secret. It wasn't until she released the video for her single "Never Worn White," which featured a scene of her in a sheer white dress, her arms gently cradling a baby bump, on March 4 that anyone thought she might be pregnant. She's been hiding her growing baby by wearing loose clothing and using "a big purse" to conceal her expanding tummy. “OMG so glad I don’t have to suck it in anymore,” Perry said on Twitter.

"We're excited and happy and it's probably the longest secret I've had to keep," Perry added as she ate what appeared to be a fairly tough piece of dried mango. "I had to reveal it at some point. It's getting pretty obvious." Perry initially sparked pregnancy rumors when she and her fiance Orlando Bloom attended an Amazon event in August of 2019, when she wore a loose, flowing pink dress that had fans convinced she was hiding a baby bump. In 2013, she told Marie Claire that she wanted children, but wasn't ready.

"I'm definitely not there yet," she told the magazine, "and I can’t plan that far in advance. When I decide to have a family, I'll just want to be Mom for a little bit.." That suggests that Perry will take a break after the summer release of her latest album, which is still a bit of a secret, although we know that one of the singles will be "Never Worn White." No matter what the material, however, Perry's 2020 release is one of the most anticipated releases of the summer, according to Forbes magazine.

That's aside from her baby with Bloom, of course. Fans and celebs alike were quick to offer their well wishes as well as praise her for her bold way of making the announcement, including Katharine McPhee, who recently married musician and music producer David Foster after his split from his ex, Yolanda Hadid. "Congrats queen! Wishing you love and happiness always," McPhee tweeted. Cardi B responded as expected, and tweeted, "OMMMMMMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG," followed by heart emojis. Some fans were reduced to tears after hearing the news.

Perry and Bloom were once in no hurry to tie the knot. "It's important to me that we are aligned — I've been married and divorced and I don't want to do it again," Bloom said when he appeared on the Today show. "And we're both fully aware of that. She's remarkable and so I'm always so impressed with that and I'm encouraged." According to Page 6, the two are planning a June wedding in Japan. Their baby is due this summer. Bloom has a son, Flynn, 9, with his ex, Miranda Kerr.
