After using a music video to reveal she and actor Orlando Bloom are expecting their first child last Thursday (“Never Worn White”), Katy Perry broke the news to American Idol fans in a slightly more traditional way.
Found in a cute clip posted over the weekend (March 8), the pop superstar enlists fellow judges Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie to make her pregnancy public — doing so in typically lighthearted fashion. “We’re having a baby!” she gushes, before adding a relatable “Oh my God, I’m terrified.”
Bloom had also shared the news with his fans the day before, but after a brief celebration, Perry’s Idol co-stars went right back to business. She first asks Bryan if he’ll throw her a baby shower, but has to make it clear there will be no fishing tackle involved. Dejected, Bryan then wonders aloud how things will change backstage, asking the blushing mom-to-be, “Does this mean your dressing room gets bigger?”
“Well, I’m definitely gonna get fat,” Perry says without missing a beat. “So look forward to that! Everything is gonna be bigger and better on American Idol Season 3!”
The third season of American Idol on ABC (and 18th season overall) continues each week on Sundays and Mondays.
