Baby Bloom! Katy Perry yesterday announced that she was expecting her first child with fiancé Orlando Bloom. But reports are now emerging that she has had to postpone her wedding, apparently due to fears of coronavirus.

According to People, the singer had finalised plans to marry Orlando in Japan - in front of 150 guests - in June. But reportedly, that has now been delayed because of the virus. It will be the second time the couple - who got engaged on Valentine's in 2019 - have pushed their wedding back, as they were originally planning a winter wedding last year.

'Katy was actually really excited about walking down the aisle pregnant,' a source told the outlet. The insider added: 'They were both so elated that all the wedding details were finally coming together, but they are hitting pause because of coronavirus.' So far, the illness has infected over 96,000 people, and has killed over 3,300 worldwide.

Casually, Katy yesterday revealed the news that she was expecting by showing her growing baby bump at the end of the music video for her new single, Never Worn White. She then tweeted to acknowledge the bump, 'OMG,' she joked. 'So glad I don't have to suck it in anymore, or carry around a big purse lol.'

In an interview with SiriusXM yesterday, Katy also said that her pregnancy 'wasn't an accident,' and that her and Orlando are 'looking forward to this new interval of life.'
