Katy Perry opened up about her pregnancy weight gain and proudly showed off her big baby bump during an interview on Sunday, July 19. The pregnant singer — who’s expecting her first child, a baby girl, with British actor Orlando Bloom — spoke candidly about her changing body while she chatted with Australia’s The Kyle and Jackie O Show over the weekend.
During the interview, which was done via video chat, the “Daisies” singer confessed that she now weighs 190 pounds. She gave the world a good look at her growing middle by sporting a cute crop top with the word “Smile” written in a rainbow font across her chest. Katy looked stunning and happier than ever rocking the white top, which completely exposed her bump.
Just days after she proudly showed off her body in a strapless swimsuit during a trip to the beach with Orlando and a friend, the American Idol judge stood up to reveal her uncovered belly as it peeked out in between her shirt and her yellow, red, and white bottoms.
She then joked that she wasn’t sure if she could actually wear the shirt, which was a piece of her own merchandise promoting her upcoming album, Smile, which is set to release on August 14.
“I was like f*** it! I can still be young and fun and wear a crop top!” the mom-to-be shouted as she once again stood up to reveal her torso.
She jokingly referred to herself as being “large Marge in charge” and added that she’s “really grateful for [her] body.”
“Going through this process you get a whole new viewpoint,” she added.
Katy — who previously joked about not being able to drink while in lockdown — also spoke to the Australian radio hosts about how she’s starting to get pretty “swollen” as her due date fast approaches.
“Everything is swollen,” she revealed, as she admitted that her feet have gotten so big that she now has to wear sandals wherever she goes.
But despite expecting during a pandemic, Katy also spoke about how she’s still working hard and staying active.
“I’m a very active woman… and during this time of COVID — and quite frankly an American revolution — I have been also putting out songs and heading towards putting out a record,” she shared. “I’m working really hard. The one blessing is I don’t have to travel.”
The star hasn’t publicly confirmed her exact due date but has told fans on multiple occasions since she confirmed her pregnancy back in March that she’s set to give birth sometime this summer.
