Katy Perry is seen at 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' on Feb. 12, 2020 in Los Angeles.

It really is going to be a jam-packed summer for Katy Perry.

The pop superstar announced she's pregnant with her first child, confirming the world's worst-kept secret of the past 12 or so hours.

At midnight, Perry posted her music video for "Never Worn White," a weepy love song which had Katycats in hysterics. Towards the end, Perry clearly shows off a baby bump.

Katy kept fans waiting on a live chat a half-hour before the video premiere. Moments after the clip dropped, another hint: "Let’s just say it’s gonna be a jam packed summer...," reads one post.

And then, she let it all out. “Omg so glad I don’t have to suck it in anymore,” she tweeted. “And in another, or carry around a big purse lol.”

The 35-year-old artist is engaged to marry British Lord of the Rings actor Orlando Bloom, who has a nine-year-old son Flynn with his ex-wife, the Australian model Miranda Kerr. The pair are due to tie the knot in June, possibly in Japan, according to unconfirmed reports.

But first, the “Firework” singer has a trip to Australia. She’s booked to perform twice as part of the Women’s T20 World Cup this Sunday (March 8) at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and she’s headlining the “Fight On” concert next week in support of Australia’s firefighters and communities affected by bushfires.

With all of that activity happening in Perry's world, a new album isn't far down the track. In a live chat before the video dropped, Katy revealed a new set was coming this summer, the followup to Witness, which arrived in June 2017.

That's a jam-packed summer
