Katy Perry is not anxious about the pain that can come with delivering a child. The nine-month pregnant singer can deliver a baby girl any day now. In an interview, Katy shared her thoughts about being a mother and her new album “smile”.
Katy told the publication that she never felt the need to become a mother. She was too focused on her career for the past ten years. While being a pop superstar used to be her “life,” Katy is now at a place where she wants something more unrestrained, a family with her husband to be, actor Orlando Bloom, 43.
The 35-year-old singer revealed that she’s already started packing her hospital bag for when she goes into labor. She’s in the home stretch and feeling the physically exhausting final days of pregnancy. Katy said she is “clutching the railing of the stairs harder,” even though she’s still been able to make it to the beach to relax, and even run a few brief errands with her huge baby belly.
Katy also mentioned that, although she was present and assisted in her older sister Angela Hudson‘s two home water births, she didn’t feel like she had the same maternal instinct to become a mom herself. “Five years ago, I would be like, ‘Get this out of me,’” she told the paper while pointing at her baby belly. “But I traced back the reasons I felt insecure about it from my upbringing. And then I reprogrammed them. Our brain is malleable. You can reshape it any time you want.” On Feb. 26, 2014, Katy tweeted, “Finally you can add ‘helps delivers babies in living rooms’ to my resume! It’s been a miracle of a day…Auntie Katy aka Stylist Auntie,” about helping bring her niece into the world.
The Dad to be, Orlando is excited to welcome his first daughter, in an interview with Jimmy Fallon he said, “I’m so excited to be…to have a little daddy’s girl, “I hope she’s gonna love me as much as I love her. That daddy girl thing and that love of your life feeling I think is right ’round there.”
