Katy Perry has announced that she is expecting a baby girl.
On Saturday, the “Roar” singer shared a photo on Instagram of her fiancé Orlando Bloom smiling at the camera with his face covered in what appears to be pink-coloured cream.
The image was taken as part of the couple’s gender reveal and posted alongside the caption: “It’s a girl” and two pink heart emojis.
The 35-year-old also geotagged the photo “Girls Run The World”.
Since posting, the photo has received more than 1.5 million likes and thousands of comments from well-wishers.
Fashion designer Jeremy Scott commented: “I can’t wait to dress her”, while celebrity hair stylist Jen Atkin wrote: “Yayayyayayay”.
Perry first revealed that she and Bloom were expecting their first child together on 5 March with the release of her new single “Never Worn White”, off her upcoming fifth studio album.
In the music video, Perry wore a variety of elegant garments, including a white dress and a Midsommar-inspired floral gown.
At the end of the short film, the Americon Idol judge was captured cradling a baby bump.
Following the music video’s release, the musician took part in an Instagram Live video with her 90.5m followers, in which she confirmed her pregnancy.
“There’s a lot that’s happening this summer. Not only will I be giving birth, literally, and figuratively … to something you guys have been waiting for,” she said to the camera.
“I’m excited, we’re excited, and happy. 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.”
At one point in the live video, Perry shared a close up of her pregnant stomach, before panning the camera back to her face and screaming in excitement.
The couple started dating on-and-off in January 2016 before getting engaged on Valentine’s Day 2019.
Bloom is already a father to his nine-year-old son Flynn, whose mother is supermodel Miranda Kerr.
