COVID-19 is really putting a damper on things everywhere. It's like, cancelling everything, and that includes Katy Perry's wedding. The couple were going to be married in Japan, quite soon, and Katy Perry was extremely excited to walk down the aisle pregnant.

They're not only put the venue on hold but have also asked people to cancel their flights. No need to head out to Japan during a major outbreak, right?

It's the health-conscious thing to do, especially while pregnant as you want to protect the child and mother in that situation.

A source spoke to People about the change, and said: “The wedding is definitely postponed. Katy was actually really excited about walking down the aisle pregnant. She thought it would be funny and cute to be in her wedding dress with a baby bump. All her friends were joking that it was so her luck because they’ve been totally ready to start a family for a while now.”

The couple is a bit disappointed, Perry being 35 and Bloom being 43, the change of plan has to feel like Christmas Day was cancelled last minute. But, it's said that they are also grateful to be healthy, as COVID-19 could pose a risk to the pregnancy.

According to the CDC website, while they have no definitive data regarding pregnant women and COVID-19, the virus is a strain similar to SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV, so here's what they said: "We do not have information on adverse pregnancy outcomes in pregnant women with COVID-19. Pregnancy loss, including miscarriage and stillbirth, has been observed in cases of infection with other related coronaviruses [SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV] during pregnancy. High fevers during the first trimester of pregnancy can increase the risk of certain birth defects."

The source at People, continued: “Now they can just enjoy their time together before the baby arrives. They’re going to pick up on wedding planning again after the baby arrives.”

On top of a baby and a wedding, Perry has a pretty busy schedule. She's got an album in the summer, and American Idol, and she's scaling back work closer to her due date so that she can be sure to be prepared to be a mother.

Ryan Seacrest had Perry on his radio show last Friday and the following conversation ensued, "I’m excited for it," Perry told Seacrest, "It’s not the lead single off of the next record — it’s like a way for me to tell people I’m not fat, I’m just pregnant!”

According to a close family friend of Bloom's,

“Katy can’t wait to be a mom, and she feels so lucky to share this journey with Orlando. She was always attracted to the fact that Orlando is a great dad. He is excited to give Flynn another sibling.”

Flynn is Orlando Bloom's son, who is eight-and-a-half years of age. Perry has talked about how he's prepared her for motherhood, changed her habits, and bettered her life, causing her to mature enough that she feels like she's a real adult!
