On Wednesday, via music video, Perry revealed that she and fiancé Orlando Bloom are expecting their first child together. “There’s a lot that will be happening this summer,” the singer told her fans on Instagram live. “Not only will I be giving birth, literally, but also figuratively, to something you guys have been waiting for.” KP5 is gestating! “It’s probably the longest secret I’ve ever had to keep,” she continued, whilst snacking on some dried mango. "I had to reveal it at some point," she said. "It’s getting pretty obvious." “omg so glad I don’t have to suck it in anymore,” Perry tweeted on Wednesday night, adding, “or carry around a big purse lol.” Yes, her deliberately stomach-blocking purse game has been on-point lately.

Bloom is father to 9-year-old son Flynn, whom he shares with ex-wife Miranda Kerr.
