Katy Perry's Grandmother Passes Away at the Age of 99 Days after the Singer's Pregnancy Announcement

It has only been days since Katy Perry revealed that she was pregnant, but the singer is now mourning the death of her grandmother, Ann Pearl Hudson, who died on Sunday, one year shy of 100.

Katy Perry took to social media to pay tribute to her grandmother, Ann Hudson, 99, who passed away on Sunday, a week after the singer announced that she and her fiancé, Orlando Bloom were expecting a baby. In an emotional Instagram post, Katy said

"...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…"

Katy's emotional post was accompanied by a mixture of photos and videos of the moments she spent with Ann, including when she told the 99-year-old, on her sickbed, that she was having a baby. Her caption continued thus:

"If she is able to speak with the soul in waiting the conversation would probably include "are [you] sure you wanna pick these wild group?!"" 

The singer also added that her late granny might have had a glass of her favorite blush wine ready when she arrived at the afterlife, and also had her most fashionable look on. 

Katy also said that she is what she is today mainly because of her father, who is what he is because of her grandma, adding that Ann started it all and that she [Katy] was grateful that Ann did. 

The "Fireworks" singer also revealed that she always carried Tobacco Sauce with her wherever she went.

In the other part of her tribute, Katy Perry stressed on the importance of family and also pointed out some of the struggles her granny faced, and how she raised three kids on her own as a seamstress. The singer recalled some sweet memories she had of Ann.

I don’t know when a soul 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. 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?!” There would most definitely be some sarcasm, a witty quip or two... tbh grandma probably had a glass of her favorite blush wine ready upon arrival to this afterlife... and a most fashionable look, jewels included, naturally. A lot of what I am is because of my father... and he is because of her. She started it all, as she used to remind us and I’m so grateful she did. Family... is there to show us what love can be... sometimes that journey of finding the love is tough to get to AND through but if you can open your heart and let the light lead the way you will find that incomparable love. Ann Pearl Hudson was a fighter. She survived the Great Depression, raised 3 kids on her own as a seamstress, making G strings for showgirls and other such characters in Vegas. She was always authentically herself, funny and full of all the sweet cozy things you think of when you think of grandmas. She gave me crisp dollar bills in hallmark cards, she let us eat her favorite almond cookies from the 99 cent store while we asked questions about the different fans she had displayed on her walls. She was a wonderful grandma and I will forever carry some of her in me. When my whit comes out, that’s Ann. When my authenticity comes out, that’s Ann. When my stubbornness comes out, hell, that’s Ann. When my fighter spirit comes out, that’s Ann. When my style comes out, that’s Ann. May she rest in deep peace and kiss the forehead of the soul to come and let them know everything is gonna be OK, especially now that they have gained an angel to look over them ♥️♠️

Concluding, Katy said her whit, authenticity, stubbornness, fighting spirit, and style were all due to her grandma and prayed that she rests in deep peace. Katy also revealed her grandma's death on Twitter, with a tweet that read:

"a song for Grandma. May she rest in deep peace [emoji] Ann Pearl Hudson [emoji]." 

Accompanying the tweet was a Spotify link to the song, "Deep Peace" by Bill Douglas, featuring the Ars Nova Singers.

Katy Perry announced to the world that she was pregnant on Wednesday, March 4, 2020. Since the announcement, there has been lots of attention towards the singer from her fans, and she is also keeping them updated on happenings around her. 

One thing women face during pregnancy is cravings for some particular food types, and Katy Perry is not exempted from that but is embracing it publicly. 

In an Instagram Live video, the singer reassured her fans that her cravings take many different forms at around the sixth month of pregnancy. 

The "Fireworks" singer also revealed some of her cravings, including spice, which she never cared for before now, adding that she always carried Tobacco Sauce with her wherever she went. Katy also revealed that she had been eating burritos for weeks on end. 

However, it isn't everything Katy craves for, as she has also grown aversed to some other things, with red meat, in particular, making her feel gross.
