Pregnant Katy Perry reveals she ‘locks herself in car and cries’ after confessing to ‘waves of depression’ in pandemic – The Sun

PREGNANT Katy Perry revealed that "she locks herself in her car and cries" after revealing to "waves of depression" amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The singer admitted that her pregnancy plans have been derailed because of the pandemic, which caused her a lot of anxiety.

The 35-year-old American Idol judge – who is expecting her daughter in the summer – revealed on Zoe Ball's BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show and Fleur East's Hits Radio Breakfast Show she's been getting very emotional due to her pregnancy hormones and the global health crisis.

Katy told Zoe: "My plan pre-COVID was, you know, just to keep going and put out a record in the summer until my waters break, then I was going to transition into being a mom.

"But there's obviously a certain skill set that's needed in being a full-time mom, and I guess I get to have a test run.

"But, like everyone else, I go sit in my parked car outside of my house, lock the doors and sometimes just cry off my fake eyelashes."

She also explained that part of her anxiety stems from the fact that she doesn't think she'd be a good mom.

She told Fleur: "I've always wanted to be [a mom]. I didn't know if I could be that, or if I'd have the capacity.

"My sister is the most maternal one in my family and I'm a logistics strategizer, you know, show off, and I didn't have the maternal gene, so I've had to really learn how to have that."

And fortunately, the coronavirus quarantine has given Katy the chance to get some practice in as she is currently quarantined with her nieces and Orlando Bloom's son, Flynn.

She further explained: "It's been wild, I'm quarantining with my three-year-old and six-year-old niece and then Orlando's son who's 9 and, you know, just getting used to having kids around the house."

The Daisy singer recently admitted to having "waves of depression."

On Tuesday, Katy wrote to her 108 million Twitter followers that she has struggled with the devastating impact of COVID-19.

“Sometimes I don’t know what’s worse trying to avoid the virus or the waves of depression that come with this new norm,” she tweeted.

Katy further opened up more about her emotional pregnancy during Saturday's SheIn's Virtual Festival.

She said: "I think a lot of that is hormonal and I'm not used to being around so many people all in a confined or a small space for so long."

She added: "I'm used to going out all the time."

The singer admitted that she will have "five good days" before her emotions take over.

She said: "There are some days where I cry when I look down at my toes or I cry when just doing simple tasks."

Katy – who has been with her baby daddy on-and-off since 2016 – said in the past that she struggled with her mental health following her divorce from comedian Russell Brand in 2012.
