Katy Perry is a mod mom-to-be in daisy print dress as she cradles her baby bump ahead of Idol finale

In March, Katy Perry announced that she is expecting her first child, a daughter, with actor and fiance Orlando Bloom, 43.

And in a series of self portraits shared to Instagram ahead of the highly anticipated American Idol finale on Sunday, the 35-year-old singer fondly cradled her burgeoning bump.

In the photos – seen by her over 96million followers – Katy donned a sleeveless, mock neck dress inspired by her latest single Daisies.

‘Tune in TONIGHT for the #AmericanIdol grand finale AND my first television performance of #Daisies,’ captioned the Teenage Dream songstress. 

Keeping with the theme of her gown, Katy wore dangling daisy earrings and slipped her feet into a pair of black patent flats.

Her short blonde hair was neatly parted to one side, slicked back, and secured with a shiny black headband.

Her lips were adorned with ruby red lipstick, while she played up her famous blue eyes with some pale eyeshadow and false lashes.

Perry released Daisies on Thursday evening as the lead single for her impending fifth studio album. She also dropped a coinciding music video.

In the nearly three-minute video, Katy donned a romantic linen dress before artistically stripping down completely giving her audience a clear view of her bare bump.

Katy had used the music video for her song Never Worn White to reveal the news of her pregnancy to the world back in March.

In April, she took to Instagram to announce that she would be welcoming her daughter sometime in the summer. 

And, in the Daises video, Katy looked far along in her pregnancy and appeared to feel nothing but excitement for her first stab at motherhood.  

Shortly after releasing the Daisies music video, Katy took to Instagram to provide her nearly 97million followers with some insight on the song’s meaning and how she hopes her audience will interpret it.

‘I wrote this song a couple months ago as a call to remain true to the course you’ve set for yourself, regardless of what others may think,’ she began in the post’s caption.

‘Recently, it has taken a new meaning for me, in light of what the whole world is experiencing. Each of us is one in more than seven billion, with our own story of strength and resilience to tell.’

‘I hope it will be the soundtrack to going for your dreams now… especially the ones we left behind,’ concluded Perry.

Amazon’s Alexa AI revealed exclusively on Thursday that Perry’s full length record – which currently remains untitled – will drop on August 14 of this year.

The record is presumed to revolve around her engagement to Bloom, her prior failed music era, and her first go at pregnancy.

Orlando proposed to Katy on Valentine’s Day in 2019 following an American Idol taping held in Los Angeles.
