Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are set to welcome a new baby into their lives but the emotions are taking a toll on their relationship, according to a source. Perry, who is set to become a first-time mom later this year, has reportedly been “stressed” since becoming pregnant and it has changed her relationship with Bloom, Us Weekly reports.
“Orlando and her are having some ups and downs right now. Katy is dealing with the nerves of being a first-time parent, and Orlando is stressing about having a baby in their lives at this time,” a source told Us Weekly.
Many first-time moms experience highs and lows during their pregnancies and it sounds like it’s no different for Perry. While she seems to be doing okay physically, preparing to welcome a baby can have its challenges alongside its joys.

Interestingly, Perry and Bloom have had a bit of a rocky relationship from the start. The American Idol judge and the Pirates of the Caribbean actor made their relationship official in 2016, but over the years, there have been reports that the two had split. Their relationship has been referred to as “on-off” over the years, and while they became engaged in 2019, it sounds like they still have their issues. In fact, Perry even opened up about the bumps in the road during a recent interview with Ryan Seacrest.
“There’s a lot of friction between my partner and I, but that friction breeds something beautiful, it can breed a lot of light. ‘It’s just one of those relationships. I don’t know about anyone else who’s listening what kind of relationships they’ve had – and I’ve had many – but it’s like we basically, we get down to the matt and come back up every time,” she told him.
Despite the challenges, Perry is beyond thrilled to be entering this new phase of her life. She really wanted a baby girl and she recently found out that her wish had come true. Earlier this month, Perry posted an Instagram photo of Bloom with pink-colored frosting all over his face. She captioned the photo, “it’s a girl” and flanked the text with pink heart emojis. You can see the post below.
This will be the first daughter for Bloom, who is a dad to son, Flynn, 9, whom he shares with his ex-wife, Miranda Kerr.
