Katy Perry’s due date is edging closer, and the singer opened up about her pregnancy experience to date, and how it didn’t all happen by accident.
Singer Katy Perry first made her pregnancy announcement back in March. Since then, the 35-year-old singer started preparing for her bundle of joy with Orlando Bloom, and the release of her first album in three years.
IT WAS ALL PLANNED
Spending much of her pregnancy in quarantine amid the novel coronavirus pandemic, it added to the customary hormonal ups and downs Perry felt as her pregnancy progressed. Even so, things are working out exactly as planned.
During a recent interview for The Sunday Times, Perry shared that she told her management that she wanted to become a mother this year, but she also wanted to “put this record out.” The decision to start a family was a quick one made while she and Orlando went to Egypt for her birthday last year.
HER PREGNANCY EXPERIENCE
Since Perry already saw the paternal side of Orlando with his son 9-year-old Flynn, her primal nature certainly helped to kickstart the growth of their family. For now, Perry is just trying to contend with the growth of her belly, as she said:
“I’ve been through an emotional journey and I feel very grounded, and I should feel grounded because I’m 185 pounds right now.”
Nonetheless, Perry said that she feels “really good” and that she is proud of the way her body changed so far in its ability to accommodate this life growing inside her.
IT BROADENED HER PERSPECTIVE
With Perry preparing to release her fifth studio album titled Smile, she expressed her newfound perspective for the female body and what she’s experiencing it to be capable of and said:
“I’m really grateful for my body, and I have so much respect for women going through this process. You get a new viewpoint being pregnant.”
NOT THE GODMOTHER
Although Perry and her fiance Orlando have not shared the names of their daughter’s godparents, we do know the godmother is not going to be Jennifer Aniston.
Aniston and Bloom are “good friends,” and Perry joked that Aniston “had everything said about her,” including the “wild rumor” that she will be their daughter’s godmother. According to the singer, they had great fun with the rumor even though they have no idea where it came from.
Even though Katy Perry knows where the production delays of her album came from, it didn’t change the fact that it was “unavoidable.”
Late last month, the singer took to social media to share the dreaded update with her fans that her new album release date is now August 28.
