From ‘I Kissed a Girl’ to Today! Katy Perry’s Total Transformation Over the Years in Photos

When it comes to female pop stars who have stood the test of time, Katy Perry most definitely tops the list. The California native first came on to the scene with her 2008 hit single, “I Kissed a Girl,” and ever since, she’s been a staple in the music industry. 

With that, fans have become deeply invested in Katy’s personal life — including the many highly publicized relationships she’s been in. From Travie McCoy and John Mayer to Russell Brand, it took the “Firework” singer some time to find her Prince Charming. Nowadays, she and fiancé Orlando Bloom couldn’t be happier. 

In March 2020, Katy announced that she and the Pirates of the Caribbean actor are expecting their first child together. In her music video for “Never Worn White,” the award-winning artist cradled her growing baby bump à la Beyoncé at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards.

While Katy was pregnant, the picture-perfect couple did everything they could to prepare for their little one. The sweetest part? Orlando’s son, Flynn, whom he shares ex-wife Miranda Kerr, was just as excited as they were! “Orlando can’t wait for Flynn, who’s already 9 and thinks he’s grown, to interact with his little sibling,” a source told Life & Style at the time. “Orlando and Katy are hoping for a girl, but Flynn is hoping it’s the little brother he’s always wanted.”

The following month, the proud parents got their wish! “It’s a girl,” Katy captioned an adorable photo of Orlando with pink icing smeared on his face. Of course, the A-list dad made sure to spoil his ladylove every step of the way. “He’s rubbing Katy’s belly and singing softly to their baby,” the insider added. “He massages her feet, rubs her shoulders and pampers her as much as he can.”

In August 2020, Katy gave birth to the pair’s daughter, Daisy Dove Bloom. “We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter,” she gushed in an August 26 Instagram post on UNICEF’s page. “In celebration of the heart we know our daughter already has, we have set up a donation page to celebrate DDB’s arrival. By supporting them, you are supporting a safe start to life and reimagining a healthier world for every child. We hope your [heart] can bloom with generosity.”

Katy is thriving professionally. She’s returning for her sixth season on ABC’s American Idol, which is scheduled to air in spring 2023. The singer kicked off her Play residency in Las Vegas on December 29, 2021, packing houses at The Theatre at Resorts World Las Vegas. She consistently sells out the 5,000-capacity theater, and Billboard reported in February 2022 that she made just under a whopping $7 million for her first eight shows. Way to slay!
