In April during an interview with Extra, Katy revealed that while quarantining with her family had brought them closer together, there had also been “horrible days where she wants to cry”.
“Even though I can get highly annoyed by being quarantined with my family in close quarters … I feel we’ve laid a new foundation within our family,” she said at the time.
“There’s a bond that’s even stronger. We have some horrible days where I want to cry, but I believe when we look back at this, for myself, it will be this beautiful bond that we created.”
Katy has also been down to earth about the biggest downsides of quarantine during pregnancy — being able to fulfill her cravings when they hit.
“You hear stories of a pregnant woman craving something and the husband or fiancé goes and rushes to the grocery store at two in the morning,” she told Good Morning America.
She joked: “It’s like, ‘Do you really need that pickle? Do you want to risk your life for a pickle?'”
Now Katy has shared her latest example of pregnancy honesty with her followers, hopping onto her Instagram story to post a video of her very, very swollen…belly button.
“Do you guys wanna see something gross?”
Katy said in the video, just before zooming in on her swollen belly button.
She captioned the clip “pregnancy realness” with a nauseous emoji.
“Do you guys wanna see something gorgeous?” she said in a follow-up video, before panning to herself.
“That’s what you get! It’s a payoff for looking at my gross belly button.”
