In the caption alongside a promotional photo showing her with hands raised above her head holding a red and white purse while decked out in a matching ensemble, she wrote: ‘I know we’re all sheltering in place, but if you really wanna go on a trip, why don’t you BAG a mushroom purse?’

She went on: ‘And don’t forget 10% of every purchase will be donated to @baby2baby to assist their efforts in providing essential items to children and families impacted by COVID-19.’ 

The purses normally retail for $75 via her Katy Perry Collections website where she also sells a variety of handbags and shoes.

Perry is expecting a baby girl with her fiance Orlando Bloom.

In an interview with Britain’s Capital radio this past Saturday, the Roar hitmaker spoke about the challenges of being pregnant during the coronavirus pandemic.

‘Everyone talks about cravings when you’re pregnant and for me, I think about cravings but I also think about ‘do I want to risk my life getting that craving?” she said.

‘So it’s all like really intense thoughts that are supposed to be light and bright and you’re like ‘aaarrggh!” she continued. ‘You know, there’s so many levels of uncertainty and it’s really a one day at a time type of thing.’
