Katy Perry has revealed that she is expecting a baby with her fiancé Orlando Bloom.

The pop star, 35, joked that she was happy she didn’t have to try and “suck it in” any more, now that the cat is out of the bag.

Perry teased her big news in the music video of her song Never Worn White, singing the line “See us in 60 years with a full family tree” and tenderly cradling a baby bump while wearing a filmy white dress.

Sharing a clip on Instagram after the video premiered, she quipped: “Let’s just say it’s gonna be a jam packed summer...”

Perry joked on Twitter: “Omg so glad I don’t have to suck it in anymore or carry around a big purse lol.”

She later said in an Instagram video that it was the longest secret she had ever had to keep.

Perry has been dating British Lord Of The Rings and Pirates Of The Caribbean actor Bloom since 2016.

The couple confirmed in February last year that they had got engaged, after sharing pictures of Perry sporting a ring against a backdrop of red heart-shaped balloons.

The baby will be the first for the Roar singer, who was married to comedian Russell Brand for two years from 2010.

The pair have a nine-year-old son named Flynn.
