“He’s really excited for a little girl,” the singer, 35, said during a Monday, June 22, interview on Mix 104.1’s Karson & Kennedy. “They say that little girls are daddy’s little girl. That’s how it’s going to be. We’ll see.”
“I’ve been overwhelmed, I’ve been anxious, I’ve been happy, I’ve been overjoyed, I’ve been depressed — I’ve been all of it,” the Grammy nominee said of her pregnancy on Monday. “The world is just a wild time, and it’s a wild time to bring life into the world. I mean, people were already having those kinds of conversations years ago, where it’s like, ‘Man, the world feels a little uncertain.’ And now, it really feels shaky boots.”
The California native went on to say that she and the Lord of the Rings star “have yet to decide specifically” on their baby-to-be’s name.
“We have yet to decide specifically because I think we’ve got options and she’ll tell us,” Perry explained. “I’ll look at her and go, ‘Oh yeah, yeah, you are her. You are that.’”
Carrying a child amid the coronavirus pandemic has been difficult for the “Fireworks” singer. “I’m putting myself to task,” Perry told Radio.com of quarantine life last month. “I definitely lock myself in my parked car in front of my house and cry sometimes, just like everyone else does.”
The American Music Award winner said that since her original plan was to work “until [her] water broke,” she has been “spiraling” while hanging at home.
“I also chalk it up to the uncertainty of being pregnant for the first time and having a child and not knowing [the future],” Perry explained in May. “It’s a real, real time for me. I feel all the feelings.”
She and the Carnival Row star started dating in 2016 and got engaged three years later.Listen to Us Weekly's Hot Hollywood as each week the editors of Us break down the hottest entertainment news stories!
