Is Katy Perry about to become a mom? It could happen! The newlywed singer is planning a guest stint as Ted's love interest on "How I Met Your Mother."
The hit CBS series, of course, is based on the premise of Ted (Josh Radnor) recounting to his children the events that led up to his meeting their mother. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Perry's character will have a romance with Ted later this season.
In the episode—titled "Oh, Honey"—Perry, 26, will portray the cousin of Jennifer Morrison's character Zoey. Her role is described as "a beautiful, naive girl who the gang resorts to calling 'honey.'" Says "How I Met Your Mother" co-creator Carter Bays, "Katy is a tremendous talent and we are delighted to be able to work with her."
As for her own plans to become a mother, Perry, who wed 35-year-old British comic Russell Brand in October, says she can't wait.
“I don't want to miss out on any experience," she told the U.K.'s Grazia magazine. "I want lots of children.”
