Jennifer Aniston reportedly broke down in tears of joy when she was asked to step into the role by the couple.
“She is pretty chuffed about it as well and cried when they asked her,” a source told the publication.
The two have been friends for almost a decade, bonding even more during the coronavirus pandemic.
“Katy and Jen are very close. During lockdown they went for socially-distanced walks, and spent lots of time catching up,” the source said.
Aniston has already had years of experience as a godmother to Coco, the 16-year-old daughter of Courteney Cox.
Ahead of her delivery Perry is in good spirits. She’s highlighted her baby bump on social media in high-fashion ensembles.
When promoting her new album “Smile” on UK radio Friday, the “Roar” singer dished on her pregnancy, joking, “I am waddling like a duck! I’m breathing heavily, I’m a full-on mouth-breather.”
Katy had recently opened up about her life’s depression period when she parted ways momentarily with Orlando a couple of years ago. The singer had said, “My career was on this trajectory when it was going up, up and up and then I had the smallest shift, not that huge from an outside perspective. But for me it was seismic. I had given so much out, and it literally broke me in half. I had broken up with my boyfriend, who is now my baby daddy-to-be.”
For the unversed during an American Idol taping in LA, Orlando asked Katy on Valentine’s Day in 2019. Everyone learned they were expecting a daughter at their home during a gender reveal party in April. This is the first-ever kid for Katy. While Bloom and his ex-spouse Miranda Kerr already have a nine-year-old son named Flynn.
