Katy Perry has announced her grandma has died just days after sharing news that she is pregnant.
The global superstar performed on-stage at the ICC Women's T20 Cricket World Cup Final, singing for the first time since she revealed a baby is on the way, before she broke the tragic news on Twitter .
"A song for Grandma. May she rest in deep peace. [heart emoji] Ann Pearl Hudson [heart emoji]," the heartbroken star told her followers.
Fans of the singer flooded her Twitter page with comments, sending their love to her family.
Her grandma was a very special member of her family, especially to her actor fiancé Orlando Bloom – who met Ann on her 96th birthday in 2017.
According to a Katy Perry fan account, her grandma passed away last night, on Sunday March 8.
The account wrote: "@katyperry 's grandmother, Ann Hudson, passed away tonight. Our feelings to the whole family and strength to Katy Perry, we are all with you right now."
A representative for Katy has been contacted by Mirror Online for comment.
The tragic news comes after Katy performed in Australia at a 1960s-themed event, singing along to a medley of her songs including Firework and Roar.
Wearing a stunning purple dress decorated with Venus symbols and pink late knee-high boots, she strutted along runway in style, showing off her pregnancy glow – and her growing baby bump.
Looking more stunning than ever, she wore her blonde locks in a half-up do, and had the ends flicked out for a more sophisticated look.
Her bump was on full display in the purple mini dress, which represented the female gender.
She was also spotted out shopping for baby bits in Melbourne, and wore a floral print midi dress to proudly show off her changing body.
The star landed in Australia earlier this weekend, after she announced the pregnancy news via Instagram for her Never Worn White video.
