Admitting that the uncertainty of the future has her “spiraling,” Katy Perry opened up in an interview about her struggles with being pregnant while in quarantine.
On a fertility-themed music video for her song “Never Worn White,” the popstar revealed that she was expecting with fiancé Orlando Bloom. Perry’s been held up with Bloom, along with his 9-year-old son (from a previous relationship with Miranda Kerr), plus her young nieces since quarantine struck that same month.
She says, “In the past, I’ve been a perfectionist slash control freak, and all perfectionist slash control freaks are spiraling right now. And planners are spiraling. So, I’m spiraling a little bit, like, every day. But I also chalk it up to the uncertainty of being pregnant for the first time and having a child and not knowing [the future]. Los Angeles just extended their stay-at-home [order] until maybe August, and I’m just like, ‘OK, I’m going to trust the professionals.’”
She adds, “I know I should meditate. I know I should talk to my therapist. I don’t get the opportunity just to, like, have a glass of wine right now if I’ve reached a certain point of, ‘Oh, my God, this is way too much, I cannot handle this, I’ll have a glass.’ It’s a real, real time for me. I feel all the feelings.”
Perry will be due sometime this summer while she and Bloom revealed the gender of their child, and it’s a girl.
