Katy Perry is proudly showing off her baby bump for the first time since announcing her pregnancy this week.
The singer and American Idol judge, who on Thursday, revealed her pregnancy in a new music video for the song “Never Worn White,” was in Australia on Saturday to rehearse for her Sunday performance at the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020. It’s a first pregnancy for Perry and her fiancé Orlando Bloom.
“Hello Australia, hello Melbourne! We are here at the ICC Women’s T20 Cricket World Cup. I’m about to play it tomorrow,” the 35-year-old said in an Instagram story. “We’re trying to make it the most attended female sporting event ever.”
“....It’s going to be an incredible way to celebrate International Women’s Day tomorrow by cheering on one of your favorite teams,” Perry continued. “The Indian team are playing and the Australia team are playing, and it’s going to be a lot of bada** women out there. I’m going to try and be one of them. We’ll see!”

Perry also spoke in an interview with SiriusXM’s Mikey Piff on Thursday about her choice to reveal the pregnancy in a music video.
“This song is not the lead single off of my next record,” the singer said. “But honestly I was getting way too fat to hide it. So I was like, ‘Well, I think this song would be a great reveal....’” She added, “...That’s how I communicate things — I communicate through music — so I think, what better way to do that.”
Perry also shared excitement for the new phase of life. “I’m sure it will be an untraditional way but, look, I’m joining the force of working moms out there,” she said. “And that is a very strong force. I love what I do and it doesn’t feel like work and it brings me so much joy, so I just want to continue that state of joy.”
The baby will be the second for Bloom, who has a 9-year-old son named Flynn with ex-wife and model Miranda Kerr. This week, a source told People that Perry and Bloom are re-thinking their summer wedding in Japan due to the coronavirus.
