Moviegoers checking out Katy Perry: Part of Me this weekend will get a lot more than Technicolor live renditions of Perry's chart-topping hits on the big screen (and in 3D!).

In between snippets of concert performances, the 27-year-old superstar drops one hint after another about the rise and fall of her marriage to Russell Brand during her massive 2011 tour -- including their disagreements over starting a family.

In one backstage scene of the documentary, Brand texts Perry a picture from McDonald's and jokes that they should name their child "Ronald."

But a few minutes later, the "Wide Awake" singer admits that babies are definitely not on her immediate agenda.

"A baby can't have a baby -- and I'm still a baby," she says.

Alas, a source close to British comic Brand, 37, confirms to Us Weekly that children were a sore spot for the couple, who called it quits after just 14 months of marriage last December.

"[Russell] feels there's no point in being married if you don't have kids," the source says. These days, the Rock of Ages actor "is ready to move on," the source adds.
