Katy Perry is having a baby girl
After announcing her pregnancy and upcoming wedding in the music video of Never Worn White, which gained 25 million views to date, Katy Perry has now revealed that she's having a baby girl with fiance Orlando Bloom. Last March, the pop star shared that she hoped for a baby girl so we can just imagine how happy she must be now that her hopes finally came true. Like any other mother-to-be, Perry has been having concerns about the delivery of her child with the pandemic still in full swing but hopes that the issue would abate by the time her due date comes in the summer, according to an article by Elle. Any guesses on what the baby's name would be?
John Krasinski is now a YouTuber
It's a bit hard to believe but it's true; John Krasinski, best known for his role as Jim Halpert in The Office, is now a Youtuber. His channel Some Good News, which as you guessed from the name, is all about discussing good news and providing feel-good content. With the delayed release of A Quiet Place II, it seems like Krasinski has found another way to provide entertainment. In the first episode, he invited Steve Carell, his The Office co-star, who played Michael Scott, to talk about the beloved show in celebration of its 15th anniversary. What a treat for the fans!
