Katy Perry’s pregnancy is hogging headlines around the world. And everywhere the news spreads, faces are lighting-up with happiness.

ABC caught the moment when Perry shared the good news with her fellow American Idol judges. Sandwiched in a group hug between Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan, Perry admits, “Oh my god I’m terrified.”

When the “Firework” singer asks the lads if they’ll throw her a baby shower, all the ideas come pouring out. Not all of them are good. “I’ve got the fishing tackle,” says Bryan.

Asked if she’ll need a bigger dressing room, Perry admits: “I’m definitely going to get fat. I’ll look forward to that. Everything is going to be bigger…and better…on American Idol.”

Perry let the word out last Friday with the release of her music video "Never Worn White," in which she revealed her baby bump. She confirmed what everyone wanted to know with a string of social media posts.

On Sunday, she performed live at the Melbourne Cricket Ground for the grand final celebration of the T20 Women's Cricket World Cup, showing off her bump in public for the first time.

Watch the baby-news video below opened Sunday night's episode of Idol.
