Every expectant mom has a vision for how they’re going to announce their pregnancy, but sometimes things don’t go exactly to plan. Popstar Katy Perry recently announced to the public that she and her fiancé Orlando Bloom are expecting their first child together this summer in her latest music video.
The singer dropped her new single, “Never Worn White,” last week and during the video, she showed off her growing baby bump publicly for the first time.
However, when it came time to sharing the happy news with her family, the reveal she had planned for that special occasion didn’t go exactly as she had hoped. In an interview with SiriusXM’s Mikey Piff, Perry explained the plan she had in place to tell her family they are expecting.
Katy Perry Shares How Her Mom Accidentally Ruined Her Pregnancy Reveal
“I actually kind of put the news on a wine label and I was doing it by either bringing a bottle of wine with a bespoke label that said it…I would bring it to dinner or something or I’d give it as a gift to a friend like here’s a nice bottle of wine, but then they’d get the reaction later.”
But that’s not how things went down. “My mom, it was so weird, I didn’t get a chance to do it. She just came over and was looking at my wine – and she never does – and she was like, ‘What is this?’ And that’s how it happened,” she continued.
Katy wasn’t disappointed that her mom “ruined” her reveal though, saying her it just was her mother’s “intuition” that had her searching through the popstar’s wine fridge. Katy also shared that she and Bloom are both “looking forward to this new interval of life and sharing this.”
When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
