The pop star opened up to CBCin an interview this month about her mental state after the two separated in 2017.

"I lost my smile," Perry said, also referencing the criticism at that time surrounding her album "Witness." "I don't know if my smile was ever fully, like, authentically mine but I was riding on the high of a smile for a long time. Which was the validation, love, and admiration from the outside world, and then that shifted."

Perry shed new light on her relationship with the "Lord of the Rings" star in her CBC interview.

"I had broken up with my boyfriend, who is now my baby-daddy-to-be, and then I was excited about flying high off the next record and the record didn't get me high any more … The validation didn't get me high, and so I just crashed," she said.

The two have since reconciled, and the couple shared details of their 2019 Valentine's Day engagement.

"We went to dinner, and I thought we were going to go and see some art after dinner, but we pulled up to a helicopter," Perry told Jimmy Kimmel in February 2019. "My whole family was there, and all my friends. He did so well." .

The couple announced they were expecting that child in March when Perry showed off her growing baby bump in the final moments of the music video for her new single "Never Worn White," which was Perry's first song of 2020.

Though the announcement came as a surprise to her fans, Perry said the pregnancy was no shock.

"Well, it wasn't on accident," she said in an interview with Sirius XM. "I'm so grateful for everything that I have been able to do and achieve and all the goals that I've been able to kind of check off my list and dreams, and the life I've lived thus far, and I think I've just been trying to create this space in my own life where I'm not running myself too ragged and like… creating space for something new to happen like this."
