Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom want their unborn daughter to name herself.

The Roar hitmaker and her fiancé are expecting their first child together. In an interview with Karson & Kennedy on Mix 104.1, the Grammy-nominated artist said they’ve got plenty of name options, but haven’t made a final decision as they first want to meet their bundle of joy.   

“We have yet to decide specifically on her name because, I think, we’ve got options and she’ll tell us. I’ll look at her and go, ‘Oh yeah, yeah, you’re her, you’re that’,” Katy revealed.

Although excited, the singer said her emotions have been “everywhere”.

“It’s a wild time to bring life into the world,” she explained.

“I’ve been overwhelmed, I’ve been anxious, I’ve been happy, I’ve been overjoyed, I’ve been depressed – I’ve been all of it.

“People were already having those kinds of conversations years ago where it’s like, 'Man, the world feels a little uncertain.’ And now, it really feels shaky boots.”

The 35-year-old singer also said Orlando – who has a nine-year-old son, Flynn, with his ex-wife Miranda Kerr – is “really excited” to welcome a baby girl into the world. He’s hoping she’ll be a daddy’s girl.

Katy revealed she’s expecting her first child with Orlando (43) in her music video Never Worn White.

In the video, the singer, dressed in a gorgeous white gown, is seen cradling her baby bump.

“Omg so glad I don’t have to suck it in anymore . . . or carry around a big purse lol,” Katy tweeted shortly after the video’s release.

In an interview with SiriusXM Hits 1, the songstress said that she and Orlando had been planning to have a baby for a while.

“Well it wasn’t an accident,” Katy said.

“I’m so grateful for everything I've been able to do and achieve and all the goals I’ve been able to check off my list.

“I think I’ve been trying to create this space in my own life where I’m not running myself too ragged, creating space for something new to happen like this.”
