‘American Idol’s Caleb Kennedy, 16, apologized for ‘disappointing’ fans and making ‘people lose respect for me’ after a controversial video surfaced online.

American Idol Top 5 finalist Caleb Kennedy, 16, announced on May 12 that he has been eliminated from the competition series while apologizing for appearing in a controversial video that circulated online the same day. “Hey y’all, this is gonna be a bit of a surprise, but I am no longer gonna be on American Idol,” Caleb tweeted. “There was a video that surfaced on the internet and it displayed actions that were not meant to be taken in any way. I was younger and did not think about the actions, but that’s not an excuse.”

The video in question showed Caleb sitting next to another person wearing a Ku Klux Klan hood, and was captioned “bow.” It’s unclear when the video was filmed. “I wanna say sorry to all my fans and everyone who I have let down,” Caleb tweeted. “I’ll be taking a little time off social media to better myself, but saying that, I know this has hurt and disappointed a lot of people and made people lose respect for me. I’m so sorry! I pray that I can one day regain your trust in who I am and have your respect!”

He ended by thanking those who have “supported” him. Caleb comes from Roebuck, South Carolina, and impressed the American Idol judges deeply during his first audition. He sang an original song, called “Nowhere,” and told Luke Bryan that he writes new music “every day.” Katy Perry told him that she believed he had “something real special,” and Lionel Richie even said Caleb already mastered a “storyteller’s voice.” It was only upward from there.

Caleb’s last appearance on American Idol was during the May 9 show, when he was selected as one of the Top 5. The contestants all tackled a Coldplay hit, and Caleb had opted to put a country spin on “Violet Hill.” Katy told him that the performance “scared” her, but “in a good way because it was that good.” While Lionel said that his confidence seemed like it “dipped” a bit as he sang, he was still doing great.

With Caleb eliminated, the remaining American Idol contestants are: Casey Bishop, Grace Kinstler, Chayce Beckham, and Willie Spence.

New mom Katy Perry has bigger worries than if she missed a spot while shaving her legs. After Luke Bryan teased her about leg hair on ‘American Idol,’ she said she’d rather cuddle her daughter.

Leg hair, don’t care! Katy Perry would much rather spend what time she has in her busy life with her eight-month-old daughter Daisy Dove Bloom than making sure her legs are silky smooth. The 36-year-old shared a fun off-camera American Idol moment to her Instagram stories on May 9, when her fellow judge Luke Bryan, 44, pointed out a line of dark stubble along her right calf. The “Roar” singer had her leg propped up on her table, and the slit in her white pant leg exposed her skin.

“I know you’re a mom and everything, but we’ve got to do something about this leg here,” Luke told Katy, as she panned away from him to look down at her leg and show where she’d missed a patch of hair while shaving. “No! I don’t got time! I’d rather cuddle with my daughter,” Katy yelled back in a high pitched voice. She also wrote, “#MOMSKNOW” across her IG story video.

Fans wouldn’t have noticed Katy’s legs, as she wore a gorgeous black and white pantsuit on the Mother’s Day evening telecast. It consisted of a long white blazer and pants, which had small slits coming up to mid-shin that helped show off her open-toe strappy black heels. Her ensemble featured a wide black corset across her mid-section over the blazer, with strips of boning going past the top and bottom of the garment.

The “Dark Horse” singer had previously revealed on Idol that she was no longer terribly concerned about her leg hair care routine ever since she gave birth Daisy in Aug. 2020. On the show’s Apr. 4 episode, she gushed to contestant Cassandra Coleman, “Your voice is a spiritual experience, It is otherworldly, angelic. As a new mother, I don’t have very much time, so I quit shaving, but when you sang, the hair on my legs grew an inch and a half. Full body chills! It was amazing.”

Afterward, host Ryan Seacrest jumped in to add, “I tell you, Luke was checking to make sure you were telling the truth while talking.” Katy then lifted her right leg up onto the table to give her fellow judge a closer look.  “She literally has leg hair!” Luke exclaimed, to which Ryan snarked back, “Thank you for the forensic report.”

Katy has proven that she’s kept up her leg shaving routines here and there. When the family went on a Hawaiian vacation in Feb. 2021, the singer rocked a purple one piece strapless swimsuit while hitting a private beach with her fiance Orlando Bloom, 44. The fair-skin on her legs appeared to be free of any hair or stubble. But since she was having a romantic moment alone with her guy while Daisy was being looked after back at their bungalow, the “Firework” singer might have stepped up her shaving or waxing routine.

Orlando Bloom was spotted holding his adorable daughter Daisy as her mom Katy Perry followed closely behind during a Mother’s Day weekend outing near their home.

Orlando Bloom, 44, showed off his doting daddy ways when he kept his adorable eight-month-old daughter Daisy Dove close during his latest outing with Katy Perry, 36. The actor and singer were photographed while walking in a parking lot over the weekend as their bundle of joy looked as cute as could be in her father’s arms while wearing a gray outfit with white stripes and tan shoes. It’s not clear where they were going, but there appeared to be stores surrounding them, indicating they were running errands or possibly getting food.

Both Orlando and Katy looked stylishly comfortable as they took their family-of-three stroll. He wore a light peach-colored hoodie, jeans, and tan sneakers with white shoelaces while she showed off a khaki style button-down long-sleeved top, matching pants, and tan slip-on sandals with matching socks. She also had a tan headband over her blonde locks, which were pulled back, and a pink floral face mask as her hunky love rocked his own bright blue face mask.

The outing comes during Katy’s first Mother’s Day weekend and one person walking by them was even spotted holding a “Happy Mother’s Day” balloon. Although she hasn’t revealed whether or not she has any plans for the special day, which takes place on May 9, she’ll most likely be relishing in the fact that she’s now the proud mom of little Daisy. Since the tot’s arrival last summer, she’s been seen enjoying quality time with her and often boasts about her in interviews and on social media.

Last Oct., Katy also gushed over Orlando and how he’s been bonding with his new baby girl. “Daddy’s doing a great job,” she told ET in an interview about her return as a judge on American Idol. “Daddy has stepped in. I’ve seen the Bjorn on him, I’ve seen him with the bottle, I’ve seen all the pictures. It’s all good.”

She also explained that although she adored Daisy, she’s “grateful” for having an opportunity to still be on the music competition series. “It’s amazing. I’m so grateful for this opportunity and for this job, and to be able to continue to inspire other people to go after their dreams,” she explained. “I mean, my life just feels very full and whole.”

The top 10 performed Disney classics on ‘American Idol’s Disney Night on May 2. When the top 7 were announced, that meant 3 contestants were sent home in heartbreaking eliminations.

It’s the most magical night of American Idol! It’s Disney Night! Right off the bat, Ryan Seacrest reveals the Comeback winner. Season 18 runner-up Arthur Gunn is now a part of the season 19 top 10 after a nationwide vote. Arthur says it “feels marvelous” to be back.

The top 9 took a trip to Disney World in Florida where they collaborated with celebrity mentor John Stamos. Caleb Kennedy is the first contestant to perform. He rocked out to “Real Gone” from Cars. Katy Perry raves that his “energy is infectious” and had the perfect song choice. Lionel Richie adds that it was a “radiating performance” for the 16-year-old.

Willie Spence on ‘American Idol.’ (ABC)

Willie Spence sings a powerful rendition of “Circle of Life” from The Lion King. The end of his performance is stunning. Luke tells Willie that he has the “magic” in him, and Lionel Richie says Willie is a “true stylist as an artist.” He also notes that Willie’s “delivery is just so incredible.” Katy calls him a “bonafide idol.”

Deshawn Goncalves switches things up with his performance of “When You Wish Upon A Star” from Pinocchio. He rearranges the song and creates a jazz version. Lionel raves that Deshawn totally “nailed” his performance. Katy says this performance showed “real, true growth” in Deshawn.

Casey Bishop wows with her stunning rendition of “When She Loved Me” from Toy Story 2. This girl is just 16, but she’s got one powerhouse voice. Katy tells Casey that her “vocals will take you to infinity and beyond.” Luke goes so far as to say Casey is a “superstar in the making.”

Similar to Deshawn, Chayce Beckham decides to switch the arrangement of “Baby Mine” from Dumbo. His alt-rock version is a standout performance. Lionel advises Chayce to not get so caught up in the fact that he’s on American Idol. “Enjoy this, this is your moment,” Lionel says. Katy commends Chayce for changing up the arrangement and making “Baby Mine” a “cool song.”

Alyssa Wray embraces her inner Disney princess with her beautiful version of “A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes” from Cinderella. She really saves her big vocals for the final part of the song. Lionel calls the performance “amazing,” and Katy adds that Alyssa was “elegant and elevated.”

Arthur returns to the Idol stage to sing his own version of “Remember Me” from Coco. He feels right at home on stage. “That was one of your best performances I’ve ever seen,” Luke says. He adds that Arthur was “so authentic” in his style and vocal tones.

Cassandra Coleman hits the stage next and performs “Go The Distance” from Hercules. Luke tells Cassandra that this was the “most comfortable” he’s seen her in the moment. Lionel keeps it short and simple, calling it an “amazing, solid performance.”

Hunter Metts is back after tearing up on stage two weeks ago after forgetting the lyrics during his performance. This week, he’s singing his mom’s favorite song, which is “You’ll Be In My Heart” from Tarzan. It’s a super sweet and slow performance. Katy has nothing but praise for Hunter. “You really swung that one,” Katy says, before adding that he “sounded great.” She admits she loved the “big leap” he took with the performance at the end.

Grace Kinstler on ‘American Idol.’ (ABC)

Grace Kinstler is ending the night with “Into the Unknown” from Frozen 2. It’s a total star-making performance. Katy is nearly speechless! Luke says, “You had the eye of the tiger… you went beyond all that.”

Now it’s time for eliminations. This is going to be gut-wrenching. Ryan reveals the top 7 (in no particular order): Chayce, Casey, Willie, Hunter, Caleb, Grace, and Arthur. That means Deshawn, Alyssa, and Cassandra are going home this week.

Luke Bryan laughed while spilling the details on how he and his wife Caroline stay close both mentally and physically, in a new interview.

Luke Bryan, 44, is giving his fans an idea of how he and wife Caroline, 41, stay close and make things work with a little humor and honesty. The singer recently gave an interview to theSKIMM and when he was asked what the secret to his 14-year marriage is, he said, “Communicate and make-up sex” with a chuckle. The lovebirds have been married since 2006 and share sons Thomas, 13, and Tatum, 10, together so they definitely know a thing or two about commitment and family life!

In addition to his marriage, Luke opened up about his fellow American Idol judge Katy Perry, 36, and her new baby Daisy, whom she shares with fiance Orlando Bloom, 44, in the interview. Unfortunately due to the pandemic, he hasn’t been able to meet the seven-month-old tot in person just yet, but he has been able to see her on a video call. “I have FaceTimed on set with Katy’s precious daughter Dasiy Dove,” he explained. “But I haven’t been able to do the baby fat, pinching the cheeks stuff yet.”

Luke also answered random questions during the fun interview like what his dream collaboration would be. He picked the talented Rihanna, 33, for that answer. He also said Lionel Richie, 71, would be the one American Idol co-worker he’d want to quarantine with because his house is “ginormous.”

Before Luke made headlines for his latest interview answers, he did so by getting a hook stuck through his hand during a fishing accident last month. He shared a graphic video of his hand after the incident as well as posts of him waiting to get it out, but luckily all was well after and he went back to enjoying the sport. “Got the hook out. We’re back,” he said in a follow-up video of him giving a thumbs up and smile to the camera.

It’s great to know Luke is both okay and relishing in a joyous and satisfying marriage with Caroline! He recently had to take a break from his position on American Idol after he tested positive for COVID-19, but he’s been posting on his social media regularly and keeping his fans up to date. We hope to see him back on our television screens soon!

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom were out enjoying springtime weather in Santa Barbara, going for a couple’s bike ride minus baby Daisy.

Katy Perry and fiance Orlando Bloom took an eco-friendly tour of her hometown of Santa Barbara, CA on Thurs. Apr. 8, biking around the oceanfront city. The pair rode S-Works pushbikes as they made their way around town, stopping by a furniture store and gardening shop. Katy did a superb rewear of a full-length, white-and-striped maxi dress she originally wore on a Sat. Apr. 3 trip to the beach with the couple’s seven-month-old daughter Daisy Dove Bloom.

This time for her bike ride, Katy paired the beach coverall with tight white pants underneath. Since the sides of the dress slit up past her knees, it was perfect to add trousers to the look for a more bike-friendly outfit, as she moved the skirt between her legs. Just as she did at the beach, the 36-year-old donned the same small straw sun hat and pink face mask with black and white dots on it, and had beachy flip flops on her feet to do the pedaling.

While Katy was beach-casual perfection for their bike outing, Orlando went with an all-denim look. The 44-year-old actor donned faded jeans rolled up at the ankles and a blue long-sleeve snap-up front collared shirt. It appeared to be made of a lighter denim fabric, but nonetheless he still was able to pull off wearing a Canadian Tuxedo while still looking casually stylish.

Katy Perry initially wore her striped maxi-dress to the beach with daughter Daisy on Sat. Apr. 3. She rewore it with white pants for a bike ride with Orland Bloom on Apr. 8, Photo credit: MEGA.

The couple left daughter Daisy at home as they spent their day biking and checking out stores. Their eco-friendly rides came with quite a price tag, as Orlando was seen in the seat of the $13,525 ‘Specialized S-Works Turbo Levo SL’ and Katy went for a less expensive ‘S-Works Turbo Como 3.0 650B’ that starts at $3,250. But with Katy raking in a reported $25 million a season as a judge on American Idol, money’s hardly an issue.

Katy and Orlando just bought a stunning mansion in Montecito — right next door to Santa Barbara — in Feb. 2021 for $14.2 million. Being just 90 minutes up the coast from L.A., it’s the perfect place to raise their baby girl while having Katy’s family close by. They’ll definitely be able to find loving relatives willing to babysit Daisy on a moment’s notice should Katy and Orlando want to do something as a couple…like go for a bike ride!

Kellyanne Conway’s teenage daughter Claudia has posted a new TikTok video which shows her in hospital with an IV drip in her arm.

Claudia Conway is a true Gen Z! The 16-year-old daughter of controversial political consultant Kellyanne Conway has been hospitalized, and broke the news to her fans via TikTok. The American Idol contestant took to the social media app on March 31 to reveal she feared she might have appendicitis. In the video, Claudia was seen dancing in her hospital bed while wearing a blue protective face mask and showing off the IV attached to her. She captioned the clip, “Let’s hope that my appendix isn’t about to burst,” adding “drip too hard? yall rocking w/ IVs?” in reference to Lil Baby and Gunna‘s song “Drip Too Hard.”

@claudiamconway

let’s hope that my appendix isn’t about to burst 🤞

♬ Drip Too Hard – Lil Baby & Gunna

It comes one week after the teenage social media star was eliminated from American Idol. She took the stage for part two of Hollywood Week on the show’s March 22 episode, and was paired with fellow contestant Hannah Everhart. The two singers didn’t know each other, and things quickly got awkward. “This is not what I was expecting,” Hannah admitted. “Who did this? Everybody was laughing, but it wasn’t funny. It was not funny. I was scared.” Claudia added “We come from totally different worlds. We’re two different people.”

Judge Katy Perry came to Hannah and Claudia’s rehearsal to offer some advice. “Be mindful not to overshadow each other,” she said. “Create that space. If [Claudia’s] not coming as big as you are, then back off.” After performing a rendition of “Sign of the Times” by Harry Styles, Claudia was eliminated from the show.  “Claudia, you’re just coming to life. I can see it in you. You’re taking control of your life. I applaud you for that,” Katy said. “Claudia, this is going to be the end of the American Idol journey for right now. I hope you learned a lot and come and see us again.”

The up-and-coming social media star previously opened up about having different political views to her parents. “When your mom is working for the President of the United States, who you very much disagree with, it’s hard,” she said, adding that music became her saving grace when the internet was a “dark place”. “Most of my life, my feelings had been suppressed so then I got social media and was like, ‘Well, yeah. Now my voice is being heard.”

The singer was spotted getting socks at a local shop in Santa Monica, CA and proudly wore a gray baseball cap that had the word “MAMA” printed across the front of it in white letters as well as two daisy-themed necklaces.

She also rocked a dark blue green tank top with matching leggings and sneakers as well as a pink face mask decorated with white petals. The doting parent added a light gray sweatshirt to her outfit by tying it around her waist and had a black purse with the strap across her chest. After she grabbed the socks, she headed back to the Montecito home she shares with her daughter and fiance Orlando Bloom, 44.

Katy’s latest outing isn’t the first time we’ve seen here rock her mom and daisy-themed accessories.

Katy and Orlando’s cute stroll comes after they welcomed Daisy in Aug. and although they have been private when it comes to showing her face, they’ve been open about the love they have for the baby girl. Back in Oct., Orlando also gave fans a hint at what she looks like when he admitted her eyes are blue like Katy’s.

“The eyes do look like [Katy]’s,” he said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “But it was funny, because when she first came out, I was like, ‘Oh, it’s me! It’s a mini-me!’ And then, fortunately, she got those Katy blues, which was perfect. But then she sort of looks a bit like my mom. So I got a little bit confused because Katy’s breastfeeding this mini me, slash my mom. It’s like…who is she going to look like next?”

For his Showstopper performance on his birthday, Murphy performed a beautiful original song titled “Am I Still Mine?” Katy Perry told Murphy that she’s loved seeing him grow right before her eyes. “My voice has never been stronger,” Murphy told Katy and Luke Bryan. Unfortunately, he didn’t make it to the top 24.

Murphy was good he should have not been sent home. My Heart hurts for him. Bring him back as a wild card please. #AmericanIdol

— Melissa Brown (@Missyb3Brown) March 29, 2021

I hope a record label picks Murphy up and he gets the recognition he deserves. My jaw was on the floor. #AmericanIdol

— Deb (@orionerin) March 29, 2021

Right away, fans were furious that Murphy was eliminated from the competition. “Murphy was good he should have not been sent home. My Heart hurts for him. Bring him back as a wild card please,” one fan tweeted. Another wrote, “I hope a record label picks Murphy up and he gets the recognition he deserves. My jaw was on the floor.” Here’s hoping Murphy is chosen as a wildcard!

2. He performed an original song during his audition. 

After his first performance of “Just The Two Of Us” by Bill Withers during his audition, Lionel asks to see another song from Murphy. The singer decides to sing his original song “The Painted Man” for the judges. It’s a soulful performance with beautiful lyrics. Luke decides to send Murphy to Hollywood, while Katy says no. Katy explains that Murphy’s voice is a little too “novelty,” and they’re looking for something a little more “mainstream.” It all comes down to Lionel!

3. Murphy is a street performer. 

Murphy has made a career out of busking, also known as street performing. “It’s what I do for a living, I’m a street performer, and it makes me a fine living,” Murphy told Seattle Refined. “It’s nothing extravagant, but if you work hard you get your daily bread and that feels good. There’s never an unfulfilling day.”

4. His ultimate dream is to help others.  

The idea of money and fame is not what Murphy aspires to have as a singer. “I want people to look at me as an example of you don’t need a lot to give something substantial,” he said in his Seattle Refined interview. “Particularly, I want to help people that have had a hard life.

During his time on the show, Murphy opened up about dealing with partial blindness. “My vision is substantially worse than the average person,” the Baltimore native said. “My right eye is gone and my left eye is going, due to a form of degeneration. I’m expected to lose sight at maybe mid-thirties. And this experience, while wonderful, is trying on that part of my life. The stage lights, they’re so bright, so it’s a lot to take in… In that moment, I know that I’m damaging my eye, hurting it, and I can feel the pain.”

The first song from Taylor Swift’s ‘vault’ is here! She teamed up with Maren Morris for the track ‘You All Over Me,’ a song originally written for her 2008 album ‘Fearless.’

Taylor Swift dropped the first brand new track from the re-record of her album, Fearless (Taylor’s Version), on March 26. The song, “You All Over Me (From The Vault),” was originally written for the singer’s 2008 record, Fearless, but did not make the final album cut. As a gift to her fans, Taylor is including “You All Over Me,” along with five other never-before-heard songs from the “vault,” on the re-release of Fearless, which drops April 9.

“You All Over Me”, which features background vocals from Maren Morris, brings Taylor back to her country roots from the Fearless days. The song features lyrics like “You find graffiti on the walls of old bathroom stalls / You know, you can scratch it right off, it’s how we used to be,” and this haunting line in the chorus: “No amount of freedom gets you clean / I still got you all over me.” The song follows a story that’s all too familiar: no matter how much you try to forget that certain someone, you’ll never truly be free of their memory. You can hear the nostalgic teenage angst in the lyrics, given that the song was written in Taylor’s teen years as a country music star.

Before releasing the song, Taylor teased that more of her “vault” tracks may feature other artists, as well. “One thing I’ve been loving about these From The Vault songs is that they’ve never been heard, so I can experiment, play and even include some of my favorite artists,” Taylor gushed. “I’m really excited to have Maren Morris singing background vocals on this song.” She also confirmed that Aaron Dessner, who she worked with on the Grammy-winning album Folklore, will be producing the song, which was co-written by Scooter Carusoe.

Fans have already been theorizing that two of Taylor’s re-record collaborators may be Selena Gomez and Katy Perry. Just this week, Selena randomly posted a series of throwback pics of herself and Taylor on Instagram, and admitted she was “missing” the singer. Meanwhile, Katy also referenced “working” with Taylor on an episode of American Idol. Fearless (Taylor’s Version) will feature 26 songs in total — the 6 From The Vault tracks, along with a re-record of “Today Was A Fairytale” and re-records of the 19 original songs from the Platinum version of Fearless.

So far, Taylor has only revealed her plans for the re-release of Fearless. However, she dropped a snippet of the track “Wildest Dreams,” from her 2014 record, 1989, earlier this month, which has fans wondering if that will be the next re-recorded album to drop. She has not yet confirmed whether the rest of the re-records will have songs From The Vault, as well, but fans are definitely anticipating it more than ever now! In addition to Fearless and 1989, Taylor will also be re-recording Taylor Swift, Speak Now, Red and Reputation. She already owns the rights to her music from Lover, Folklore and Evermore.

The judges were impressed by Claudia Conway’s performance on this week’s ‘American Idol.’

After making it through the audition round, Claudia Conway returned for Hollywood Week on the March 21 episode of American Idol. For the first round of Hollywood Week, the artists chose one of six genres to perform a song from. They then went head-to-head with other contestants from the same genre with performances in front of the judges.

Claudia chose chose the pop genre, which was the most popular choice amongst the contestants. When she stepped onstage, Katy Perry immediately commented on her major transformation — she dyed her hair from blonde to dark brown! Claudia sang “River” by Bishop Briggs, and the judges applauded her after the rendition. She even made it through to the next round of Hollywood Week!

My audition wasn’t my best,” Claudia admitted before the performance. “I was really, really nervous. I had these doubts in my head telling me, you’re not ready, you’re not good enough. In my life, I’m so focused on all the noise and people hating on me and my family online and on social media. Katy Perry told me, ‘You have to calm the storm that is around you.’ She believed in me. I could not be more grateful for that. Now, I’m just drowning out the noise and telling myself I can do it.”

This week, Claudia had a special guest with her — her mom, Kellyanne Conway, who was formerly a senior advisor for Donald Trump. Claudia and Kellyanne’s relationship has made headlines due to their very different political views, which led to tension between them that was publicized ahead of the 2020 election. “It’s okay for you to have different views than people you love,” Claudia said on Idol.

Before Claudia took the stage, Ryan Seacrest asked her how important being on this show was for her in finding out who she wants to be apart from her parents. “It’s the most important thing in the world for me,” Claudia confirmed. “I’ve been trying to establish my own identity for a while. Most people don’t know I’m a singer and it’s very, very important to me.”

Although Claudia was “literally freaking out” before her performance, she totally pulled it together! Kellyanne couldn’t have been more proud, and was on her feet in the crowd when Claudia was announced as moving on. Next, she’ll take on the Duets round in Hollywood Week.

Katy Perry and her precious baby girl, Daisy Dove, looked so sweet as they bonded on a Hawaiian beach! See the photos of the mother-daughter pair, joined by Katy’s love and Daisy’s dad, Orlando Bloom!

Baby’s first beach day! Katy Perry looked completely in her element as she cradled her precious six-month-old daughter, Daisy Dove, during a trip to a beach in Hawaii on Wednesday, March 3. The “Firework” singer, 36, was spotted wearing a strapless purple one-piece by Eres while holding her infant daughter, who sported a tropical patterned, long sleeve swim shirt, pink bottoms over her diaper, and a little pink sun hat! You can see the pictures here.

Katy and her darling daughter were, of course, joined by Katy’s fiancé and Daisy’s doting dad Orlando Bloom. At one point during the family’s excursion, Orlando carried his little girl in his arms. The Lord Of The Rings alum, 44, sported a pair of small, black swim trunks and was seen cradling his daughter as the two made their way across the sand. It was such a special outing for the two parents and their baby girl, and both Katy and Orlando appear to be totally coming into their own during this exciting new chapter!

On February 18, Katy was spotted taking a stroll with her six-month-old, who reclined in her stroller. Just days later, on February 28, Orlando was seen taking a walk with little Daisy strapped to his chest in a small orange papoose! It was such a sweet sight, but beyond their recent outings in the tropical destination, the couple has also taken time to gush about their precious little one.

“I sing anything that has ‘daddy’ in it, just because I want her to say dad before she says anything else,” Orlando confessed on a recent episode of The Graham Norton Show. “Daddy loves his Daisy Dove,” the actor sang for the host and guests, giving them a sense of the dulcet tones Daisy gets to hear every day! Of course, Orlando might want to leave the singing duties to 13-time Grammy nominee, Katy!

Orlando is also the dad to 10-year-old son Flynn from his previous marriage to model Miranda Kerr. Katy and Orlando couldn’t look happier in these recent snaps, and we cannot wait to see more the little family in the future!

Katy Perry closed out the ‘Celebrating America’ inaugural special by singing ‘Firework’ as real-life fireworks exploded over Washington, D.C. The pop star’s custom Thom Browne ensemble beautifully reflected the Washington Monument.

The Celebrating America inaugural special closed out with an epic fireworks display over Washington, D.C. after Joe Biden and Kamala Harris‘s inauguration on Jan. 20. So, it was only appropriate that the singer of “Firework” was chosen to perform against this pyrotechnics show: Katy Perry! The pop star looked incredible nearly five months after welcoming her first child with Orlando Bloom while singing her 2010 hit, “Firework,” by the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool and Washington Monument.

The pop star stunned in a custom ensemble from Thom Browne, and the all-white outfit reflected the Washington Monument that served as her performance’s backdrop. The high-fashion look — which featured a cashmere coat, a silk satin corset and floor-length skirt, elbow-length gloves and a creamy train of luxurious fabric — also complemented Katy’s platinum white hair. Buttons covered in red silk satin added a pop of color to Katy’s regal performance costume.

Katy followed on the heels of incredible performances from John Legend, Jon Bon Jovi, Justin Timberlake and Ant Clemons, Demi Lovato, Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters, and more. Unlike these performers, though, Katy’s participation in the televised event was announced a bit last-minute.

On the eve of Inauguration Day, which fell on Jan. 19, the “Roar” singer tweeted a photo of four patriotic microphones: one looked like the Statue of Liberty’s torch; another was embellished with silver stars; the third was bedazzled to look like the United States flag; and the fourth was plain white. Although Katy kept her caption ambiguous, the Presidential Inaugural Committee retweeted the photo, making it clear that she would be joining the inauguration activities.

It’s no surprise to see that Katy was invited, though. Singing at political events isn’t new to Katy, who also performed her hits “Rise” and “Roar” at the 2016 Democratic National Convention to show her support for Hillary Clinton, who at the time was running against Donald Trump. So, Katy was understandably more than happy to sing at an event that also served as a farewell to Trump’s time in office.

Katy Perry took to Instagram to share some gorgeous new photos of herself showing off long black hair and bangs while posing in a stylish outfit.

Katy Perry, 36, gave us major nostalgia when she revealed a new hair makeover on Dec. 13 that reminds us of her look way back in 2008! The singer posted a series of Instagram photos that show her posing in a pink and black patterned dress with cut-out sections at the shoulder and black gloves while flaunting long black locks with bangs. She also appeared to wear matching black boots and the perfect touch of pink lipstick and flattering mascara.

“M🖤THER,” Katy appropriately captioned the epic post, referring to her new role to her three-month-old daughter Daisy Dove, whom she shares with Orlando Bloom, 43. Once she shared the gorgeous pics, her fans quickly took to the comments section to compliment the star.

“You look so good,” one follower wrote while another exclaimed, “I love your black hair!” A third agreed by writing, “We missed your black hair” and a fourth called her “a living goddess”. Even actress Gwyneth Paltrow, 48, couldn’t help but comment with, “Ooooohhh pretty🖤”

Katy’s new black hair looks very similar to the hair color and style she had when her 2008 hit album, One of the Boys, was released. It’s the record that included her breakthrough song, “I Kissed a Girl”, which made her a household name. Although the whirlwind year was certainly one of the most memorable of the beauty’s successful career, her role as a mom is topping 2020.

Katy and Orlando welcomed Daisy in August and have been doting about the baby girl ever since. Although they’ve been pretty private about showing her off, they’ve been open about their joy in having the new addition in their lives. They’ve also been open about the challenges.

“My daughter is such a gift, but there is sometimes a challenge concerning sleep no matter how much support you have,” Katy said in a Q&A during the virtual Meditate America event on Dec. 3. “Where am I going to get those six hours that I used to get?”

She went on to explain that she benefits from transcendental meditation so things are all good, and a source previously told us that she and Orlando have been getting help from her sister, Angela Hudson. “In addition to spending a lot of time with Orlando’s son, Flynn, [9], since they began dating, she’s also been quarantined with her sister and brother, and her nieces and nephews,” a source close to Katy told HollywoodLife, EXCLUSIVELY in Sept. “Her sister, Angela has a 6 and 3-year-old and her brother, David [Hudson], also stayed with them for a while with his 13-month-old baby.”

In an interview with Hugh Jackman, Katy Perry explained why she wanted a ‘reset’ as she adjusted to parenting as a first-time mom. However, Katy found a solution.

It has been a little over three months since Katy Perry started her new role as a mom, and she’s already feeling the burnout. The 35-year-old pop star got candid about the challenges of being a first-time mom — which all parents could relate to — during a chat with Hugh Jackman and the actor’s wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, during the virtual Meditate America event on Dec. 3.  “I’m a new mother. My daughter — she’s such a gift — but there is sometimes a challenge concerning sleep no matter how much support you have,” Katy confessed during the interview.

“But where am I going to get those six hours that I used to get? Where did it go?,” Katy then asked. Thankfully, the “Daisy” singer found a solution. “But I know how to get it back. And it’s through TM,” Katy said, referring to transcendental meditation, which focusing on going “beyond the surface level of your awareness” according to the practice’s website. The unique form of meditation has been endorsed by celebrities like Jennifer Aniston and even Katy’s own ex-husband, Russell Brand, in the past!

Katy couldn’t stop raving over the benefits of transcendental meditation. “There’s been so many different ways TM has blessed me, but in this particular moment, as a new mother, I take 20 minutes. Not only do I find the deepest rest that I need, that my body is desperate for — but it feels like I’ve stolen two plus hours, maybe three hours, from the clock,” she gushed. The meditation also gave Katy the “deepest rest” that her body and mind had been “desperate for as a reset,” and it has also helped her manage her depression and anxiety.

While Katy has missed out on some naps since becoming a mom, Katy has “had so much support around her, which has made all the difference in the world,” a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife in September, after the singer welcomed her daughter Daisy Dove with fiancé Orlando Bloom. “Not only has Orlando been there for her, of course, but her sister has been amazing and shared a ton of advice with Katy,” the insider added, who explained that in addition to quarantining with Orlando and his son Flynn, 9, Katy’s quarantine bubble included “her sister [Angela Hudson] and brother [David Hudson], and her nieces and nephews.”

In October, Katy went back to work as a judge on American Idol, and expressed her gratitude for having such a reliable co-parent. “Daddy [Orlando] has stepped in. I’ve seen the Bjorn on him, I’ve seen him with the bottle, I’ve seen all the pictures. It’s all good,” Katy assured during an interview with Entertainment Tonight. At least Katy can catch some sleep!

ABC has released a sneak peek of Chloe x Halle’s performance at ‘The Disney Holiday Singalong’ special, which is airing on Nov. 30! Cardi B raved over the snippet of the sisters’ heavenly vocals as they sang, ‘Do You Want to Build a Snowman?’

Cardi B, 28, was one of the many amazed fans after watching a sneak peek of Chloe x Halle‘s performance for the The Disney Holiday Singalong! A week before ABC will air the special on Nov. 30, the network dropped a snippet of sisters Chloe Bailey, 22, and Halle Bailey, 20, singing “Would You Like To Build A Snowman?,” which sounded straight out of Frozen.

— ABC (@ABCNetwork) November 24, 2020

Chloe and Halle were the perfect choices for this song, since it’s originally sung by Anna (performed by Kristen Bell, Katie Lopez and Agatha Lee Monn) who just wants to build a snowman with her sister, Elsa (Broadway star Idina Menzel voices Elsa as an adult) in Frozen. The animated Disney film is set in the icy kingdom of Arendelle, where Chloe and Halle looked like they were headed to in baby blue outfits with  puffy jackets and icy jewels.

As Chloe and Halle expertly harmonized together, as they always do, the “Do It’ sisters actually did manage to build a snowman together! Cardi found the act adorable, especially since her daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus is a big-time fan of the “Would You Like To Build A Snowman?” song. “This is sooo f–kin cute !!!I love!specially cause my kid knows The song .I love this,” Cardi gushed after sharing a clip of the tweet on Monday night.

Chloe and Halle will be two of the many performers taking the stage for next week’s The Disney Holiday Family Singalong! The lineup also includes Ciara, who will be rocking out to “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree,” and more holiday covers from big stars like Kerry Washington, Katy Perry, P!NK, Adam Lambert, Leslie Odom Jr., Derek Hough and Hayley Erbert, Julianne Hough and the king of Christmas himself, Michael Bublé.

The Disney Singalongs have been a huge hit with fans, whether or not said fans are famous like Cardi! To brighten everyone’s mood at the beginning of the pandemic, The Disney Family Singalong arrived in April, followed by The Disney Family Singalong 2 in May. We especially can’t wait for the third, holiday-themed installation after hearing Chloe and Halle’s vocals!

Katy Perry performed a medley of hits for the Tmall Double 11 Gala, which kicked off a global shopping festival! With long blonde waves and vintage glam, Katy’s performance look had many fans mistaking her for Adele.

Katy Perry, 36, had fans thinking they were actually watching Adele, 32, perform at the virtual Tmall Double 11 Gala! The event, sponsored by the Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba, kicked off Alibaba’s annual shopping festival known as “Double 11” that falls on Nov. 11. Nine days later, Katy shared a portrait and video of herself from the performance — and many fans thought they were looking at Adele.

“Is that Adele??,” one fan asked in Katy’s comments section, sparking a whole thread of comments to agree. “I thought this was Adele too!,” a fan wrote in response, with another commenting, “thought I am the only one who thinks that way. What happened to her? Her style looks more like Adele now.”

Katy was wearing her hair in long, strawberry blonde waves, similar to Adele’s own hairstyle. Fans have been accustomed to seeing Katy’s hair resting above her shoulders in a bright platinum shade, so this hair switch-up certainly increased the resemblance between Katy and Adele.

Katy and Adele share another thing in common: a strong strange presence! While wearing an iridescent, holographic dress, Katy looked like she was literally performing in space (with the aid of graphic stage effects) while performing a medley of her songs “Roar,” “Never Really Over” and a new song, “Not The End Of The World.”

A post shared by Adele (@adele)

“Never Really Over” and “Not The End Of The World” are both from Katy’s new album, Smile, which she dropped in Aug. 2020. The album was released just two days after the pop star welcomed her first child with fiancé Orlando Bloom! It’s been a busy time for Katy, and Adele can say the same thing. Adele kicked off 2020 with a trip to Anguilla with Harry Styles (and other friends), and broke the Internet with a full-body photo of herself revealing her fitness transformation in May of 2020. She even hosted an episode of Saturday Night Live in October! Katy and Adele are both rocking the world — no wonder people are confusing the two.

There seems to be no love lost between Ryan Phillippe and Ellen DeGeneres. He shaded the rumored mean host on Oct. 24, following an internal investigation into an alleged toxic work environment on her show.

Now we know where Ryan Phillippe stands concerning Ellen DeGeneres and the controversy surrounding her daytime talk show. After the Big Sky actor, 46, finished an outdoor workout in LA on October 24, he came across a billboard for The Ellen DeGeneres Show. He proceeded to snap a sweaty selfie, making sure to get the billboard in the shot, and wrote, “And remember to be kind…. Wait.”

Ryan tends to keep a low profile in Hollywood, which is why some fans were shocked to see the actor throwing shade at the beloved host. Interestingly enough, Ryan’s ex-wife, Reese Witherspoon (with whom he shares daughter Ava, 21, and son Deacon, 17) has a well documented friendship with Ellen. Meanwhile, Ryan hasn’t appeared on the show in years.

For those who missed the meaning behind the Ryan’s diss — Ellen ends every show of hers with a reminder to “be kind” to one another. However, critics used the saying to troll the host after reports of a “toxic” work environment on set of The Ellen Show surfaced over the summer.

While rumors about Ellen’s demeanor (off-air) have swirled around the television circuit for years, the buzz reached a boiling point in July. — So much, that Warner   WarnerMedia launched an internal investigation into The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Why? — The investigation stemmed from a Buzzfeed News article that published allegations of workplace misconduct from 11 unnamed current and former employees at The Ellen Show.

Ellen broke her silence about the allegations in an apology letter to her staff at the end of July. The Emmy winner wrote in part: “On day one of our show, I told everyone in our first meeting that The Ellen DeGeneres Showwould be a place of happiness — no one would ever raise their voice, and everyone would be treated with respect. Obviously, something changed, and I am disappointed to learn that this has not been the case. And for that, I am sorry. Anyone who knows me knows it’s the opposite of what I believe and what I hoped for our show.”

Elsewhere in the internal memo to her staff, Ellen defended herself as she added, “I’m also learning that people who work with me and for me are speaking on my behalf and misrepresenting who I am and that has to stop. As someone who was judged and nearly lost everything for just being who I am, I truly understand and have deep compassion for those being looked at differently, or treated unfairly, not equal, or – worse – disregarded. To think that any one of you felt that way is awful to me.”

The Emmy winner addressed the situation for a second time when her talk show returned to TV for its season 18 premiere in September. “I’m so happy to be back in the studio. There are a lot of things I want to talk about,” said Ellen in the beginning of the episode. “I learned that things happened here that should never have happened. And I want to say I am so sorry to the people who were affected. I know that I’m in a position of privilege and power, and I realize that with that comes responsibility,” she explained in part, adding, “And I take responsibility for what happens at my show.”

Just hours after Ellen addressed the scandal on her show, producer Stephen “tWitch” Boss told HollywoodLife exclusively, “[The new season] is so exciting, so exciting. We have been waiting for a while and obviously the summer has gone by and we are excited to be back. We are excited to bring the life and love and the stuff that we have always done. But it is very exciting actually and it is going to be a very special season.”

Stars who’ve supported Ellen throughout the controversy include: Katy Perry, Kris JennerKevin Hart, and Sofia Vergara.

Orlando Bloom has an unexpected fan — Sacha Baron Cohen’s Borat! The British funnyman posted a birthday tribute to the actor’s fiancé Katy Perry, and didn’t break character.

Sacha Baron Cohen‘s iconic character Borat has wished Katy Perry a happy 36th birthday! The comedian, who dropped the long awaited sequel to the 2006 mockumentary Borat this week, recorded a video for the songstress in honor of her milestone. “Katy Pepsi I was planning on going sailing in Florida so I make internet searching of ‘Orlando waterspouts’ but instead mr Google sent me a photograph of your husband with his *** out,” he began

“He have a very good one. It must be very nice to see Orlando Bloom. You will have a very nice birthday. A lot of cream on your cake. Why not.”  Katy posted the video to her Instagram page with the caption, “omg” while Orlando also shared it, writing, “@katyperry your dream come true birthday message my love HAPPY BIRTHDAY.”

Fans couldn’t get enough of the hilarious post, with one follower writing, “Change your name to Katy Pepsi.” Orlando’s ex-wife Miranda Kerr also commented on her post, “Hahaha Happy Birthday Beautiful,” adding pink heart emojis. The couple joined Sacha and other celebs Josh Gad and Ariana Grande for a special screening of the Borat sequel earlier this week. “Hollywood liberals think they catch me, but these perverts actual committing sex attack on a fake! Great success,” Sacha’s Borat character joked on Instagram.

In true Sacha Baron Cohen fashion, the film has been surrounded by plenty of controversy, with Donald Trump calling the British comedian a “creep”. The POTUS was asked about a now-viral clip, which shows former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani, 76, seemingly in a compromising position, and reporter Steve Herman said Trump claimed he had no idea what happened. “To me, he’s a creep,” he said of Sacha, adding, “I don’t know what happened. But years ago, you know, he [Sacha] tried to scam me and I was the only one who said no way. That’s a phony guy and I don’t find him funny.”

Jane Fonda wants YOU to exercise… your right to vote! The actress channeled her iconic ’80s workout tapes with the help of some celeb pals to inspire her fans to vote.

Jane Fonda knows a thing or two about workouts, so trust her when she says the most important thing to exercise that vote! The actress and activist has enlisted a crew of celebrities to help her create a new entry in her library of iconic workout videos, and while the vibes are pure ’80s, the message is 2020 specific: Americans need to vote in the November 3 presidential election. The video starts with Jane, 82, in her full spandex and headband regalia, ready to kick ass.

#ExerciseThatVote 💪🏾 The QUEEN @Janefonda getting us all in shape for the election of our LIVES!!!!!! Don’t weight 🏋🏾‍♀️ (see what I did there? 🤣), many state registration deadlines are TODAY!!!! So check your registration status now!!!!! https://t.co/pdDuAqomaQ pic.twitter.com/TI7Y3ABLLp

“Hello, class. We’re bring back the movement! We need you to be in shape for the upcoming race,” Jane instructs. “I need you to be strong. I need you to be laser-focused. I need you to be fully committed to the task at hand. So, let’s get ready to exercise our right to vote.” The video pans out to show Jane’s celebrity friends already working on their fitness. There’s Ken Jeong, who’s lifting weights in a very tiny outfit, and Shaq, who’s having a blast doing some ’80s-tastic aerobics.

Kerry Washington, doing sit-ups in neon spandex, door knocker earrings, and a “Let’s Get Physical” tee, implored her fans to “exercise that right,” while Amy Schumer got in some jump roping in her leggings. Orlando Bloom is going hard in the gym while fiancée Katy Perry, who just gave birth to their daughter, Daisy Bloom, is sitting this one out. She’s doing her part by eating chocolate and spying on her hot dude, instead. She’s definitely thinking about voting, though!

Later, while pumping breast milk, she tells her fans they need to “get pumped to vote.” Other stars, like Ashley Benson (wearing a pink leotard on a trampoline) and Vanessa Hudgens (doing some classic Jane stretches in a mesh one-piece) are along for the fun. “Exercise those glutes, exercise your quads, exercise your right to vote,” Jane ends, with a flourish.

Taylor Swift spoiled Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik’s baby girl with a handmade pink blanket! To show the surprise, Gigi snapped a new photo of her precious daughter.

Taylor Swift, 30, is taking her role as the honorary “auntie” of Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik’s baby seriously. The “cardigan” singer sewed a pink satin blanket for the couple’s daughter, which the little one is already using! Gigi, 25, shared a photo of her newborn with the blanket in a precious photo on her Instagram Story, which the supermodel posted on Sept. 25.

Gigi posted this!!! She looks so cute 🥺

A post shared by LOUIS FAN PAGE (@louis.tomlinsonupdates) on Sep 25, 2020 at 6:40pm PDT

“Auntie @taylor_swift made this !!,” Gigi wrote over the photo, which also showed her baby (whose name is still a mystery) rocking a sweater from her other “Auntie”: Donatella Versace. Gigi’s mini me was laying in what appeared to be a crib lined with pastel stripes. Taylor’s satin blanket looked very similar to the pink one she gifted to Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom for their baby girl, Daisy Dove Bloom, whom the famous parents welcomed in August. Taylor added an extra personal touch by embroidering “Baby Bloom” and a flower onto the blanket!

This is the second photo Gigi has shared of her first child, after announcing the baby’s birth on Sept. 24. “Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she’s already changed our world. So in love,” the proud mom gushed in an Instagram post. Zayn was just as excited as his girlfriend to break the baby news. The One Direction alum also shared a photo of his hand clutching the newborn’s tiny hand and wrote, “Our baby girl is here, healthy and beautiful…to try put into words how i am feeling right now would be an impossible task. The love I feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding. Grateful to know her, proud to call her mine, and thankful for the life we will have together x.”

It’s so sweet to see Taylor graduate from the role of Gigi’s BFF to her baby’s auntie! Their friendship can be traced to 2014, when Taylor photobombed a photo of Gigi with fellow model (and Taylor’s other close pal) Karlie Kloss at a pre-Oscars party. Gigi has been a part of Taylor’s “squad” since, and the runway queen even gushed about their friendship during an interview with our sister publication Variety in April of 2019.

“An amazing thing about my friendship with Taylor has been that she is a songwriter that I’ve connected to through my childhood into my adult life and us becoming friends has given me an insight into the mind that creates those lyrics,” Gigi told Variety for its “Power of Women New York” issue. Gigi is such a good friend of Taylor’s, she even attended 10 shows during the pop star’s Reputation tour. Hopefully Gigi and Zayn’s daughter will one day be attending Taylor’s concerts, too!

Katy Perry Admits Russell Brand Marriage Was A ‘Tornado’ As She Gushes About Orlando Bloom Romance

Katy Perry Admits Russell Brand Marriage Was A ‘Tornado’ As She Gushes About Orlando Bloom Romance

Katy Perry is so thankful for her ‘solid’ relationship with Orlando Bloom. She especially values it after her ‘friction’ filled marriage to ex-husband Russell Brand.

Katy Perry has everything she wants in a partner with fiance Orlando Bloom, including a brand new baby girl named Daisy. It’s a far cry from her first marriage to British actor/comedian Russell Brand, who she wed in Oct. 2010, at age 26 and at the height of her Teenage Dream album success. The 35-year-old now says that their romance was a “challenge” but that she hoped something “beautiful” would come out of it. Sadly it didn’t, as the two divorced after only 14 months of marriage.

“It was the first kind of breaking of my idealistic mind,” Katy told 60 Minutes Australia in an interview that aired on Aug. 30. “I was having great success at 23, 24 and 25 and then I met someone that was interesting and stimulating. It was just like a tornado. Everything happening at once.” They fell for each other after heavy flirting at the 2009 MTV VMAs, and he popped the question only four months later on Dec. 31, 2009 while on a trip to India.

“But yeah, I’ve always really resonated with friction and resistance and challenges. And I know that inherently that ‘ooh, it’s going to take a lot of work but we’re going to get somewhere great. Or it’s going to be a beautiful diamond. All this pressure is going to be a beautiful diamond,” she continued about their relationship. You can watch her comments in the above video starting at the 8:30 mark.

Katy and Russell returned to India for their October 23, 2010 nuptials, but her wildly successful career kept them apart for most of their brief marriage. She started her California Dreams world tour in Feb. 2011, and their painful amount of distance was laid bare in her docu-film All Of Me. The “Roar” singer later revealed that Russell texted her on Dec. 31, 2011 to tell Katy he was divorcing her.

Fortunately Katy’s relationship with Orlando has been a far more grounded one. They began dating in early 2016 and despite some breakups and makeups, got engaged in Feb. 2019. “It is a healthy, frictional, very open, very communicative nothing is swept under the mat type of relationship, Katy explained. “Even to the point where its like we should probably walk into the other room to discuss something if we’re going to disagree, because we’ll just to it in public.”

Katy also made it clear that she’s in it for the long haul with the Carnival Row star. “But I think if we can get to the end of our lives together, we’ll be each other’s greatest teachers,” she revealed. The American Idol judge also noted how what she has with Orlando is the real deal. “Dating is different. Weekend lovers, that’s fun, that’s candy. This is solid. This is like the main course,” she gushed.

Katy Perry and Miranda Kerr have defied stereotypes and proved that you can be friends with your partner’s ex! The singer can’t wait for the Aussie model to meet her newborn daughter.

Katy Perry welcomed her first child, Daisy Dove Bloom, with fiance Orlando Bloom on August 26, and the songstress is excited for her beau’s ex to meet the bub! Australian model Miranda Kerr, who was married to Orlando for three years until their 2013 divorce, shares a young son with her ex and has become friends with Katy. A source close to the “Firework” hitmaker told HollywoodLife exclusively that the proud dad will want his son Flynn to meet little Daisy as soon as it’s safe to do so.

“Katy and Orlando are enjoying their time with their daughter right now so visitors are limited,” the insider explained. “Katy’s family has been there with her but other than that they’re pretty well in a cocoon. She’s been in touch with all of her friends and as soon as she’s ready for visits Katy will welcome Miranda with open arms. She and Katy have a great relationship and are genuinely friends. Orlando will want Flynn to meet Daisy as soon as possible so I’m sure it won’t be long.”

A second source also spoke to HL about how Katy is feeling, after a whirlwind week giving birth to her daughter and dropping a brand new album. “Katy is enamored being a mother. It is such a moment that she thought she was well aware of but is already finding surprises along the way. The newness of it all is inspiring and challenging but family and Orlando are with her the entire way,” the insider told us, explaining that she looks forward to introducing Daisy to Miranda. “She is eager to share her new family with her family and have Miranda see the baby and Flynn. Its just going to be a work in progress and the next few weeks all of that will fall into place. She needs some Mom time right now. So she is taking that all in and loving every minute of it.”
When Orlando took to Instagram to announce the birth of little Daisy, Miranda proved just how amicable their relationship is when she jumped into the comments section with congratulatory words for the family of three. “I’m so happy for you guys,” she commented, bookending her message with a heart/praying hands/rainbow emoji. “Can’t wait to meet her.” How sweet!

Katy Perry is more than ready to welcome her daughter! The pregnant star hilarously quipped that TV shows & movies need to drop saying pregnancy is ‘9 months.’

Fans are eagerly waiting for Katy Perry, 35, to give birth — and no one is more impatient than the Teenage Dream singer herself. “petition: to have all movies/tv shows etc update the fact that it’s 10+ months instead of 9 months pregnant,” she hilariously tweeted on Saturday, Aug. 22, adding an eye-roll emoji. The technical reason pregnancy is said to be “9 months” is because all months are not the same amount of days — for example, February only has 28 days — and most women give birth somewhere between the nine and ten mark.

Pregnant Katy is all ready to welcome her first child with fiancé Orlando Bloom, 43, and recently even showed off her gorgeous baby nursery! The Santa Barbara native offered her KatyCats — a nickname for her fans — a video tour via her weekly Smile Sunday show on Aug. 16. Confessing she “hadn’t showed anyone yet,” Katy was SO excited as she offered her fans the the first look. The pink-walled room perfectly reflected Katy’s whimsical style, with eccentric details that she “loves,” like hexagon shaped mirror-lights affixed to the wall.

She also showed off several outfits displayed on the wall, and pulled out a few of the items she’s already purchased for her baby including an Eggo Waffle dress (one of her pregnancy cravings), a hilarious sleeper featuring Orlando’s face, and a onesie with a cherry motif (inspired by her first hit single, “I Kissed A Girl”). Of course, the room also featured a white crib, fully stocked diaper changing area and a cozy gray chair for Katy to cuddle her daughter.

The star does, however, appear to be on the exhausted side in some of her more recent Instagram posts. The Smile star — clad in cozy gray leggings, a sweatshirt and slides — sat down for a rest while shopping for baby supplies on Aug. 6. “Poopedstar,” Katy joked in her caption, appearing to fall asleep right in the middle of the sales floor. Orlando sweetly replied, “I love you,” and later filmed his leading lady getting her groove on. “Ayyyy what day is it?” he captioned a video that showed Katy sleeping. The star then hopped out of the vehicle to do the viral “Friday” dance, lifting up her sweatshirt to reveal her very pregnant tummy.

Katy Perry, 35, is ready to welcome her daughter with fiancé Orlando Bloom, 43!

“So I have some little clothes on the wall!” she explained, pretending to cry tears of joy as she moved around the room and hung onto her iPhone or laptop. The uniquely designed room included luxe gray details, including romantic drapery, a cozy chair, and silver hexagon shaped light fixtures that she “loves.” A small white crib was placed against a wall in the center of the room, with a spacious and fully-stocked diaper changing station around the corner.

Katy also revealed she’s bought plenty of adorable outfits for her first baby, including one inspired by her first hit single, “I Kissed A Girl.” The Santa Barbara native held up a sweet cherry printed onesie, reminiscent of her 2008 lyric, “the taste of her cherry ChapStick.” How cute! Her baby is also set to be dad Orlando’s #1 fan in a hilarious custom ensemble featuring the Carnival Row actors’ face, as well as the princess of Instagram in an Eggo Waffle dress (one of her pregnancy cravings, along with pickles). “Wait, a couple more — someone gave me this when I was in Australia, and you better believe it,” she then said, holding up the cutest pink Adidas onesie. We have a feeling Katy and Orlando’s baby is set to the most stylish in Hollywood!

The pregnant star looked so glam for the fun video, rocking a custom multi-colored polka dot dress by designer Enrique Urbina which she teased she might sign and give away! She added the bright orange “Tasha” headband by line 8 Other Reasons ($24), adding a dash of sparkle with crystal stickers on her face. Katy tied her look together with a cute ponytail, a bright colored lipstick and gorgeous mirror drop earrings.

The Smile singer is expected to welcome her baby shortly, revealing that she was “giving birth” sometime “this summer” in a Q&A session with fans back in March. “There’s a lot that will be happening to me this summer,” she gushed, adding that she and Orlando are “excited.” The engaged couple later revealed they were expecting a girl back in April, and we couldn’t be more thrilled for them.

Katy Perry was spotted running errands in Santa Barbara with an unidentified object held close to her chest! The pregnant star, who is roughly nine months along, looked poised and protected while out and about.

Katy Perry looks like she is just about ready to pop! The glowing “Roar” songstress, 35, was absolutely glowing while running some errands in the beaming sunshine on August 8. Katy, who appears to be roughly nine-months pregnant with her first child by fiancé Orlando Bloom, 43, wore a striped dress that accentuated her growing belly with ease. She also fashioned a visor hat to keep the sunlight out of her eyes, and carried a water bottle to stay hydrated.

Katy Perry stopped to get a bottle of water, among other purchases at a Santa Barbara shopping center on Aug. 8 [BACKGRID].The singer also practiced the necessary safety precautions amid the COVID-19 pandemic by wearing a face mask. However, there was one piece of Katy’s ensemble that fans have yet to identify. Around the scooped neckline of Katy’s dress, the singer sported what appeared to be either pepper spray or her car keys! It was definitely difficult to tell if the object was the keys to her Porsche Cayenne GTS or something completely different. At any rate, though, Katy looked healthy and happy as she and Orlando anxiously await the birth of their baby girl!

“Katy is so excited to meet her little girl; she is counting down the days,” a source close to the starlet shared EXCLUSIVELY with HollywoodLife at the end of July. Adding to the excitement, the source revealed that Katy could go into labor “any day.” Of course, Katy has been surrounded by her family and friends during this thrilling time, as she prepares to become a first-time mom.

A close-up of Katy Perry and the unidentified object in the neckline of her dress, pictured on Aug. 8 [BACKGRID].“She’s been in Santa Barbara so she’s been able to spend lots of time with family and she has so much love and support all around her,” the source continued. “And even though this is her first time [giving birth] she’s surprisingly zen about it all.” Fortunately, Katy has also gotten into the habit of practicing a lot of various self-care regiments, including meditation. But that is something Katy has maintained for quite some time, especially after her serious battle with depression in 2018.

“I believe in therapy. I believe in meditation. I believe in self-care. I believe in taking the stillness, the time, just being able to assess what’s real,” she said during an interview at the American Idol premiere event at The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel on February 12. Clearly, Katy is in a very healthy frame of mind for the major milestone that’s just around the corner.

The starlet announced that she was expecting her first child in March after premiering her music video for “Never Worn White.” In the time since, Katy has proudly shown off her growing belly, and wholly embraced the amazing transformation her body has endured. Like Katy and Orlando, we cannot wait for the pop star to welcome her precious baby girl into the world!

Orlando Bloom filmed a very pregnant Katy Perry as she rolled out of the car and began doing this viral dance! The star looked ready to pop.

Katy Perry, 35, just hilariously channeled Kanye West‘s dance video! The very pregnant Smile singer was filmed by fiancée Orlando Bloom, 43, as she stepped out of an SUV then proceeded to dance alongside the slow-moving SUV. Katy was specifically jamming out to club-ready tune by Nightcrawlers as she showed off her beautiful baby bump! “Yo, honey what days is it? It’s Fri-ye-ye!” Orlando narrated in his Aug. 7 post, adding “Ayyyy what day is it?”

A post shared by Orlando Bloom (@orlandobloom) on Aug 7, 2020 at 6:33pm PDT

Katy looked so cozy in her matching heather gray sweat outfit, featuring a cozy kangaroo pocket over her belly. Rocking a pair of black slides, she rolled up her hoodie to expose her belly and proved she’s got the moves — no matter how pregnant she is. Orlando and other voices could he heard cracking up in the background, and friends were dying in the comments. “Yes!!!!!” Scooter Braun commented, while Erin Foster added, “omg this is amazing and also scary.”

The video came just 30 minutes after Kanye tweeted a video of himself doing the same move with daughter North West, 7. “IT’S FRI-YE-YE!!!” Kanye wrote alongside the video, as wife Kim Kardashian, 39, could be heard giggling in the background. The video trend originated from a man named Mufasa who jumped out of his car for an energetic dance set to the tune Nightcrawlers’ dub remix of “Push The Feeling On.”

Katy is definitely looking ready to pop from her posts the last few days, including one on Aug. 6 where she hilariously said she was a “poopedstar.” Rocking another gray sweat outfit, the Santa Barbara native could be seen taking a rest on a gray chair in the middle of what appeared to be a baby store. She also noted “I’ve Had It” in her location, suggesting she’s definitely ready to welcome her baby girl ASAP.

“I feel like I’ve done the work and I’m still doing the work emotionally, spiritually, physically, psychologically,” Katy said on Good Morning America back in May, after admitting she’s struggled with depression. “Now I’ve come to this light at the end of the tunnel, which means I am going to live and, not only that, I’m going to bring life into the world. So it ends in a positive place,” she also said.
