Additionally, Katy relates to fans on Facebook life. “I’ve had to reschedule many plans. And not like everyone does a babymoon or a baby shower, but I’m not sure I’m gonna be able to do any of that. I’m just taking it one day at a time,” she shares. Continuing to find the silver lining, Katy says, “There’s a lot to think of… I’m grateful that I’m not giving birth tomorrow. It’s a one-day-at-a-time situation, always being open to the unknown and exploring options.”

Katy goes on to express the importance of family, as she says, “Even though I can get highly annoyed by being quarantined with my family in close quarters- I’m used to jet-setting and being really busy- now I feel we’ve laid a new foundation within our family, [that] there’s a bond that’s even stronger.”
