She added: "But honestly, I'm telling you, this is a really great addition. I'll send it to [Orlando]. It's beautiful!" Katy also revealed that she was hoping to having more children in the future. "It's not like I'm not just going to have one, I think.

"I mean, I hope. I hope! Let's see what the universe has in store for me but I think this is going to be on my 'forever' list.'"

The American Idol star is considering the name Harley for her daughter

The new baby is going to be incredibly loved. Not only does she have two parents who can't wait to meet her, she will also have a doting big brother, Orlando's nine-year-old son Flynn, from his relationship with Miranda Kerr.

Orlando recently opened up about his son's reaction to having a little sister in an interview published in HELLO! magazine. "Flynn couldn't be more excited to be getting a little sister – he's already got two brothers from Miranda. So although the circumstances are definitely unusual, this is a wonderful time for us," he said.

The Pirates of the Caribbean actor added that while the couple have picked a hospital, they are open to a home birth too.

"We're taking it day by day. We have a hospital picked out, but every other option is on the table, because it needs to be. Katy's sister had home births and it's not something she's afraid to do if she needs to. We just have to see how things pan out."
