Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have announced the birth of their daughter in a typically adorable way...
Katy Perry... Singer, songwriter, and superstar.And now she can add "mom" to her CV!
She's one of the most successful singers of our time.Her 2015 Super Bowl half time show is thought to be the most-watched musical event ever.
Katy has had an unbelievable number of hit singles.Even those totally out of touch with pop music could probably sing along to a few of her killer choruses.
Orlando Bloom is also kind of a big deal...The English actor is one of the most instantly recognizable faces of fantasy, thanks to his role as Legolas in the Lord of the Rings franchise.
Orlando has been famous for a really long time...And his role as Will Turner in 2003's Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl is what really made him a household name.
Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are now one of Hollywood's more glamorous couples...But it took them a while to get to where they are now.
It wasn't until May of 2016 that Katy confirmed the two were officially dating.
And, after a couple of relationship hiccups, they finally confirmed that they were officially together in April 2018.
And last Valentine's Day, Orlando shared this cryptic message.
And Katy confirmed everyone's suspicions...
People were thrilled to hear the news...
And one die-hard fan pointed out that exactly one year ago, Katy had caught the bouquet at her own brother's wedding.

The couple are yet to tie the knot...
Through her new music video.I know, it doesn't get any more A-list than that, does it?
Katy's new song, "Never Worn White" debuted earlier this year...And the song, which will be a part of her fifth upcoming album, hints massively that the singer will be walking down the aisle very soon. The lyrics sing: "Cause I've never worn white. But I wanna get it right. Yeah, I really wanna try with you. No, I've never worn white. But I'm standin' here tonight. Cause I really wanna say 'I do'"
As the video draws to a close...The singer can be seen clasping her hands around her stomach, which hadn't seemed any bigger throughout the full sequence.
And then, there we have it.She suddenly stands to a side and reveals her small bump, which she cradles delicately.
And, shortly after the debut, Katy shared a clip of the video on her Instagram, with the cryptic caption:
She then addressed her pregnancy in an Instagram Live stream..."I'm excited," she said, "We're excited and happy and it's probably the longest secret I've ever had to keep."
And as for whether it's a boy or a girl?
We were utterly thrilled for the couple's happy news...And watched the pregnancy with bated breath.
Katy kept her fans updated throughout her pregnancy...
She kept things real.
Katy took to her Instagram story yesterday to post a quick video of her pregnant stomach...And she revealed her swollen and very sore looking belly button, alongside the caption "Pregnancy realness" with a sick-faced emoji.
As she zoomed into her stomach, she said, "Do you guys wanna see something gross?"And she is also heard to whisper, "Disgusting." Anyone who has been pregnant can relate to this.
Fans appreciated Katy's honest post...
And many feel that it is quite rare for a celebrity to reveal themselves in such a stripped-back and honest manner.

Katy also shared more exciting news about her baby.As she and Bloom decided who would be godmother to their daughter.
No other than Jennifer Aniston will be taking on the role.And since the news surfaced, everyone has been saying the same thing.
Katy and Jen have been pals for nearly a decade."Katy and Jen are very close. During lockdown they went for socially distanced walks, and spent lots of time catching up," a source close to the pair revealed.
Jen has also reportedly been offering her support to the couple during the pregnancy.The source claimed that Katy had placed Jen at the top of the list of potential godparents.
And when they broke the news to her...Jen got pretty emotional. "[Jennifer] is pretty chuffed about it as well and cried when they asked her," revealed the source in an interview with The Sun.
Of course, this isn't the first time Jen has been chosen for godmother duties.Courteney Cox's sixteen-year-old daughter, Coco.
Since the news broke that Jen had been chosen by Katy...
Twitter exploded with reactions, with many fans bursting with excitement over the news.
