It's official, Katy Perry has come out and announced her pregnancy, which has apparently been kept under wraps for the last six months. Her and fiancé Orlando Bloom decided to share the news with the world via Instagram Live on March 5.

While debuting the music video for her track 'Never Worn White,' the stunning visuals were almost immediately overshadowed by her announcement that she was pregnant, via a snap of her noticeable baby bump at the end of the music video.

Of course, fans were immediately questioning how the mega famous singer kept her pregnancy secret for so long. Many made the reference to makeup mogul Kylie Jenner, who managed to keep her pregnancy secret for its entire duration, but Perry's close second at six months of secrecy is commendable as well.

The singer took to Twitter following the video reveal to clarify some details regarding her pregnancy, considering her entire fandom was driven into a frenzy with the slight hint in the video.

"Omg so glad I don’t have to suck it in anymore," she posted candidly before adding, "or carry around a big purse lol." Perry was referencing the great lengths she has taken as someone who is constantly in the public eye to hide her pregnancy for over half a year, especially with rumors of its occurence circulating as is.

"I had to reveal it at some point," she said during the Instagram Live session, adding further, "It’s getting pretty obvious."

"I’m excited, we’re excited, and happy," the singer continued to say. "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 went on to explain however, that her reveal to family didn't go as intended thanks to her mother.

In an interview with Siruis XM, Perry stated, "I put the news on a wine label … [I was planning to] bring it to a dinner or something or I would give it as a gift to a friend — like, ‘Oh, here’s a nice bottle of wine,’ and then they’d [have] the reaction later."

But her mother, Mary, returned home and saw the bottle, "and she’s like, ‘What is this?! And that’s how it happened. I was like, 'Well, you ruined the surprise.' I guess moms have intuition unlike any other, right?"

Perry clearly has a great weight lifted from her shoulders with this massive reveal of news, and it wouldn't be far fetched to assume that her fiancé shares a similar sentiment. Neither of the two have revealed a specific due date for their child yet, but one is sure to come soon.
