    Katy announced her pregnancy earlier this year, in a music video for her song ‘Never Worn White.’ At the end, she can be seen cradling her baby bump.

    Afterwards she tweeted, ‘Omg so glad I don’t have to suck it in anymore… or carry around a big purse lol.’

    The new arrival will be the first child for Katy but the second for Orlando – who shares a son, Flynn, with ex-wife Miranda Kerr.

    Katy spoke about having a baby during a recent chat on Australia’s Hit Network, she said, ‘I wasn’t ready a couple years ago, and I did the work to get ready and now I’m really ready.

    ‘It’s just time for me and it’s the right time.’

    The celebrity couple have been dating on-and-off since January 2016 and got engaged on Valentine’s Day 2019.

    Their wedding was due to take place this spring in Tokyo, but was postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic.
