Katy Perry announced her pregnancy to the world in the most public way possible, by unveiling her baby bump in a video for her song “Never Wore White.”  But outside of her friends and family, she’s now revealed that ahead of her big reveal, she spilled the pregnancy beans to none other than Harry Styles.

Doing a DJ set Tuesday on BBC Radio 1, Katy requested Harry’s hit “Lights Up,” and reminisced about the fact that she remembered him from when she was a guest judge on the U.K. version of The X Factor in 2010, during the time that One Direction was being put together.

“I actually saw him on a plane before I announced that I was pregnant,” she continued. “And we were having a conversation, and I was like, ‘Yeah, I’m pregnant,’ just, like, off the cuff, ’cause I was like, ‘What else do you say?'”

“He was so happy for me.  He actually….he was so sweet. I was crouching down by his seat on the plane and once I had told him that, he got up out of his seat and said, ‘Here, sit in my seat!'” she laughed.

“And I was like, ‘No! I’ll just go sit in my own seat, which is right across the way.’ But he’s, like, a complete gentleman!”

Everyone else found out about Katy in March; in April, she announced that she and fiance Orlando Bloom were having a girl.  It’s not clear exactly when Katy’s due, but her other big delivery — her new album — is coming out August 14.
