Katy Perry’s pregnancy glow is in full effect.
On Saturday (March 7), the 35-year-old pop star — who’s expecting her first child with finance Orlando Bloom — proudly showed off her baby bump for the first time in public since revealing her pregnancy earlier in the week.
Perry was photographed in Melbourne, Australia, where she was rehearsing for an appearance at the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020 Final. The American Idol judge will give a live performance before and after the cricket match on Sunday, which also falls on International Women’s Day.
Perry took to her Instagram Story to encourage female fans to attend the game. “We’re trying to make it the most attended female sporting event ever. We’re almost there,” she said in a selfie video.
On Thursday, the singer surprised the world with news of her pregnancy by showing off her baby bump in the music video for her dramatic new ballad “Never Worn White.” Following the reveal, Perry told SiriusXM Hits 1 that “Never Worn White” isn’t the lead single from her forthcoming record, but it came out at the best time.
“Honestly, I was getting way too fat to hide it, so I was like, ‘Well, I think this song would be a great reveal! Let’s start there,” she revealed to Piff with a laugh. “And that’s how I communicate things — I communicate through music.”
