KATY Perry has made public the heartbreakingly poignant moment she told her late grandmother she was pregnant.
The Teenage Dream singer revealed she was expecting a tot with fiance Orlando Bloom earlier this month.
It will be the 35-year-old's first child and she has gushed how they are "looking forward" to the new arrival, after letting slip the big news during scenes for her new music video.
They showed a blonde-haired Katy wearing a flowing, figure-hugging pink mesh skirt and cuddling her baby bump.
While the scenes for the Never Worn White video were the first time her fans learned of the hugely happy news, her close family and friends were privy way beforehand.
This included her grandmother, Ann Pearl Hudson, who sadly passed away yesterday aged 99.
Katy has now shown the exact moment she told Ann she was expecting in a touching video on her Instagram page.
The black and white scenes saw her wearing a baseball cap as she gently said: "Grandma, it's Katy.
"I just wanted to tell you, I know you're not feeling well, but I wanted to share some exciting news with you.
'I'm going to tell you that I'm going to have a baby. I'm pregnant, Grandma!
"Katy is finally pregnant, she's the last one, but I have a baby inside me and I wanted to tell that to you."
Ann's reaction remained hidden from view yet undoubtedly she will have been overjoyed.
Yesterday, Katy took to Twitter to announce Ann's sad passing.
Posting the song Deep Peace (Choral Version) by Bill Douglas, Katy wrote: “a song for Grandma. May she rest in deep peace. Ann Pearl Hudson."
Her relative was well known amongst the star’s loyal fans after appearing in Katy’s concert film, Part Of Me.
The proud grandmother – who was 98 years old at the time of her passing – was also a regular at some of Katy’s red carpet events.
Previously, discussing the baby news on SiriusXM Hits 1, Katy said: “Well it wasn't an accident.
“I'm so grateful for everything I've been able to do and achieve and all the goals I've been able to check off my list.”
