Katy Perry to name baby after 'fighter' grandmother after she announces she's having a daughter

Pregnant Katy Perry reportedly knows what she wants to name her baby daughter.

Katy, 35, and fiance Orlando Bloom, 42, are having a daughter, announcing the gender on Instagram last week.

Now, it's said that Katy wants to name her newborn in honour of her grandmother Ann Pearl Hudson, who died in March at the age of 99.

A source told The Naughty but Nice Podcast with Rob Shuter that Katy wants to name her "Pearl or Hudson or Ann."

"It was Katy's grandmother that made Katy the woman and fighter that she is today," the insider added, "Katy believes that it is no coincidence that as her granny's soul leaves the earth, another soul arrives."

Mirror Online has reached out to Katy's representatives for comment.

Ann was a regular on red carpets

Katy made no secret of her deep bond with her grandma, sharing a series of photos and videos of late Ann, including one where she'd met Barack Obama.

Penning a heartfelt message about Ann's life, Katy kept her good humour as she paid tribute.

The singer wrote: "I don't know when enters a new vehicle but if there is an afterlife where there's a waiting room of the coming and going my mind wonders if the soul that is waiting to come into my world is getting a kiss on the forehead from my sweet Grandma that departed this earth yesterday. My heart hopes so."

Katy said her grandma was a 'fighter'

She continued, joking: "If she is able to speak with the soul in waiting the conversation would probably include, 'Are you sure you wanna pick this wild group?!'"

Talking about her life, Katy told Ann's remarkable story: "Ann Pearl Hudson was a fighter.

"She survived the Great Depression, raised 3 kids on her own as a seamtress, making G strings for showgirls and other such characters in Vegas.

Ann died aged 99

Katy told her grandma she was pregnant as she lay in hospital

"She was always authentically herself, funny and full of all the sweet cozy things you think of when you think of grandmas."

She also shared a touching video when she sits beside her grandma in hospital and tells her she's expecting.

"Grandma, it's Katy," she says, "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 have a baby! I'm pregnant, Grandma!"
