Pregnant Katy Perry surprises frontline ‘hero’ doctor with video call on GMA – The Sun

AMERICAN Idol judge Katy Perry surprised a Rhode Island doctor on air on Monday to thank her for her work on the front line amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The pregnant Daisies singer, 35, snuck into Dr. Megan Ranney’s interview with ABC News journalist T. J. Holmes to give love to the “brave hero.”

The doctor’s segment started off normal enough, with her sharing details about the work she’s doing both helping COVID-19 patients and getting out PPE to medical professionals in need.

She explained how she “went into medicine to help people and [has] been taught to not shy away from even the difficult cases,” when T.J. then asked her and her two kids, who were also on the show, about how they stay centered during these times.

A clip of the family dancing around and singing to Katy Perry’s Roar was shown before Megan’s 12-year-old daughter explained how important that song is to them because of how “fun and peppy” it is.

The reporter followed her response up by asking how nice it would be if he was able to get them into the studio the next time Katy was on when all of a sudden the singer herself popped into their video chat.

All three family members were so surprised, with the stunned daughter even turning to her mom to say she “didn’t know anything about this.”

Katy spoke directly to her, saying: “Your mom, Megan, is an absolute hero. Aren’t you so proud of her?”

Smiling, the 12-year-old replied she is “indeed” proud of her mother.

Katy, who is pregnant with her first child with fiance Orlando Bloom, continued: “Your mom could join the circus. She’s doing the best juggling act in the world.

“She goes to work, she deals with a lot of stuff for work, and then she comes home, and I’m sure you guys are both angels.”

Amazed by the superstar surprise, Megan took this opportunity to also thank Katy for putting such fun music out into the world, which she thinks people really need right now.

The doctor said: “Katy, I really have to say, I cannot tell you how much this means to us.

“Really, that song, when I say that I play it to pump us up, I can’t tell you how much it means. Thank you.”

Though happy with the compliment, Katy told the mother of two that she’s the one who should be thanked and thanked often because of how “brave” she is and because everyone needs her and other doctors in order to “get through this.”

The singer added: “I’m sure it’s not easy every single day, but know that I am going to bed every single night, from this call on, and I’m gonna keep you in my personal prayers, every single night.

“And all the people on the front line, I’m going to be thinking about you and keeping you in my prayers.”

Before the call ended, Megan let the singer know that that sentiment “means the world to [her] and her colleagues because we’re all in this together.”

Also on Monday, Good Morning America announced that its annual summer concert series will be going virtual this year, and Katy will help launch the event as the first artist to give an online performance.

She’ll be singing her new song Daisies on the show on Friday.

During the broadcast, the 35-year-old shared: “I’m so thrilled to announce that I’m going to be kicking off Good Morning America’s 2020 concert series. That’s right, I am going to start it off with my brand new song Daisies. It will be a very exciting event. Don’t miss it.
