Is Katy Perry Pregnant Again?
So, is the songstress expecting? Currently, no, Katy Perry is not pregnant and she wasn’t pregnant while filming the current season of American Idol.
Furthermore the reason she had a “baby bump” is because she had given birth to her first child, daughter Daisy Dove Bloom, just five weeks prior to filming.
Additionally, Katy’s daughter was born on Aug. 26, 2020 and according to sources, Season 4 of American Idol went into production on Oct. 5, 2020.
In an appearance on Live with Kelly and Ryan, Katy explained that taking care of her newborn and the demands of her career had caught her by surprise.
“We started filming American Idol Season 4 after I’d given birth, five weeks later,” she said. “And I didn’t plan that. But it was like, ‘Oh, my God!’ It was so intense, you know?”
