Jennifer Aniston to be Katy Perry's daughter's godmother

Singer Katy Perry has chosen her longtime friend, actress Jennifer Aniston, to be her future daughter's godmother.

Perry is expected to give birth in the coming weeks to her first child by fiance Orlando Bloom. In a report published in The Sun, it was revealed that the 35-year-old pop star and the 43-year-old actor have chosen Aniston to be their daughter's godmother.

"(Jennifer) is pretty chuffed about it as well and cried when they asked her," said a source close to the trio. The source claimed that Perry and Bloom placed the 51-year-old actress at the top of their list of potential godparents and "wept when they asked her" to take on the role.

Aniston reportedly provided Perry a lot of emotional support during her pregnancy. "Katy and Jen are very close. During lockdown they went for socially-distanced walks, and spent lots of time catching up, said the source.

Aniston is already godmother to her Friends co-star Courteney Cox's 16-year-old daughter Coco.
