“We have yet to decide specifically on her name because, I think, we’ve got options and she’ll tell us,” Perry shared on a Monday interview on Mix 104.1’s Karson & Kennedy. “I’ll look at her and go, ‘Oh yeah yeah, you are her, you are that.’ “
Bloom, 43, is already a father to 9-year-old Flynn, but that doesn’t curb his enthusiasm one bit.
“He’s really excited for a little girl,” Perry said of Bloom. “They say that little girls are ‘Daddy’s little girl,’ that’s how it’s gonna be, [so] we’ll see!”
Perry is “as excited as [she] can be” about becoming a first-time mom amid a global pandemic, and admits to feeling “every emotion under the sun” during her pregnancy.
“I’ve been overwhelmed, I’ve been anxious, I’ve been happy, I’ve been overjoyed, I’ve been depressed. I’ve been all of it. The world is just a wild time, and it’s a wild time to bring life into the world.”
“People were already having those kinds of conversations years ago where it was like, ‘Man, the world feels a little uncertain,’ and now it really feels shaky boots,” she continued. Perry added how “there are a lot of rules” going into parenthood, and that “you start sacrificing” immediately. “You start becoming a mother, or a parent, once you conceive. Definitely,” said Perry.
The singer, who began dating Bloom in 2016, first announced her pregnancy in March in her “Never Worn White” music video.
And with only “several more weeks” to go until her due date, Perry “seems less stressed but is definitely a bit nervous about giving birth,” a source revealed to PEOPLE, adding, “Orlando tries to be as supportive as possible.”
When the two are not at home in Los Angeles – the insider says they are “still decorating the nursery and having fun with it.” As of late, the couple can usually be found in Perry’s hometown, Santa Barbara.
“Orlando and Katy both love the beach,” the source went on. “They enjoy the drive up the coast from L.A. It’s a beautiful change of scenery for them.”
