“Well, it wasn’t an accident,” the Grammy nominee, 35, told SiriusXM’s Mikey Piff on Thursday, March 5. “I’m so grateful for everything that I have been able to do and achieve, all the goals I’ve been able to check off my list, the life I’ve lived thus far. I’ve just been trying to create this space in my own life where I’m not running myself too ragged and creating space for something new to happen like this.”
The “I Kissed a Girl” singer went on to say, “We’re both looking forward to this new interval of life and sharing this. That’s kind of how it happens.”

Perry gushed about the news on an Instagram Live at the time, saying, “I am excited. We’re excited and happy. It’s probably the longest secret I’ve ever had to keep.

The American Idol judge went on to tweet, “Omg so glad I don’t have to suck it in anymore. Or carry around a big purse lol.”
Perry gushed about her relationship with the Carnival Row star in September 2019, telling Ellen DeGeneres: “He is the kindest soul. He is the kindest man I’ve ever met. He shows up and he’s such an encouragement spiritually, emotionally, and physically. I do not care to work out and he’s like, ‘Let’s go work out! Let’s go do hot yoga!’ That’s kind of our love language is all things spiritual and working out.”
