Katy Perry announced she is expecting her first child with her fiancé Orlando Bloom by revealing her pregnant stomach in her music video for "Never Worn White." After the video's release, she shared an Instagram Story of herself and explained how she hid her pregnancy these past couple weeks as she began to show more.
Perry wrote on Twitter, post-announcement, "omg so glad I don’t have to suck it in anymore" and added "or carry around a big purse lol." The singer was referring to what she's done in paparazzi photos taken of her these past couple weeks. In shots taken of her Tuesday in Adidas sweats, she carried a big bag.

She told viewers on her Instagram Live that she and Bloom are thrilled to be welcoming their first baby together soon. Bloom has a 9-year-old son, Flynn, with his ex-wife Miranda Kerr.
“I’m excited, we’re excited, and happy," Perry said. "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 added that she needed to announce soon because it was getting increasingly hard to hide: “I had to reveal it at some point. It’s getting pretty obvious.”
People reported last February that Perry and Bloom were looking forward to starting a family together on the sooner side. A source said at the time that “Katy is slowing down her career this year. [She and Bloom] want to get married and start a family sooner rather than later.”
Perry commented on her wedding plans in a new interview published last week, saying the marriage was more important than the ceremony to them. "I call myself a 'bridechilla' as opposed to a bridezilla," Perry told Australia's Stellar magazine. "Orlando and I are united with our approach. It’s not about the party, it’s about the coming together of people who will hold us accountable when things get really hard. Because it’s really great and then it’s really hard. Those are just the facts when you’re with someone who challenges you to be your best self."
