KATY PERRY AND ORLANDO BLOOM TO POSTPONE WEDDING IN JAPAN DUE TO CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK

While fans swooned with joy over Katy Perry's pregnancy, her wedding with Pirates of the Caribbean star Orlando Bloom would have to wait a bit longer.

According to People's magazine, an insider shared that due to the coronavirus situation in Japan, their wedding in summer would most likely be postponed.

“It was all set for Japan with 150 guests. Katy was actually really excited about walking down the aisle pregnant," the insider said. "But they are hitting pause because of coronavirus.”

In an Instagram post promoting her new music video Never Worn White, Katy Perry is seen cradling her baby bump at the end of the video.

She revealed more exciting details on Instagram Live, saying: "I'm late ... but you already knew that. There's a lot that will be happening this summer, not only will I be giving birth — literally — but also figuratively to something you guys have been waiting for."

VETERAN ACTOR CHEN SHUCHENG SELF-ISOLATES AFTER HOSTING BANQUET FOR 1,000 PEOPLE

With the coronavirus spreading quickly around the world, certain precautionary measures need to be taken to curb the outbreak.

At a banquet held on Feb 10 hosted by veteran actor Chen Shucheng and attended by 1,000 people, body temperatures were taken, and there were also announcements made to remind guests to wash their hands and not shake hands. 

However, Shucheng did not take any chances and took the extra step of isolating himself at home for two weeks after the event.

He mentioned: "There must be no chance of luck in the fight against the epidemic. You must be responsible not only for yourself but also for others. So if you are unwell, go to the doctor and don't walk in crowded areas."
