Katy Perry announced the death of her paternal grandmother Ann Pearl Hudson on Instagram Monday.

“A lot of what I am is because of my father... and he is because of her. She started it all, as she used to remind us and I’m so grateful she did,” Perry wrote. Her post included several photos of her with her grandmother, as well as a brief video of them saying, “I love you,” to each other.

“If she is able to speak with the soul in waiting the conversation would probably include ‘are sure you wanna pick this wild group?!'” the singer joked. “There would most definitely be some sarcasm, a witty quip or two… tbh grandma probably had a glass of her favorite blush wine ready upon arrival to this afterlife… and a most fashionable look, jewels included, naturally.”

Perry announced last week that she is expecting her first child with her fiancé, actor Orlando Bloom. While performing at the ICC Women’s T20 Cricket World Cup Final on Sunday in Melbourne, Australia, the 35-year-old singer revealed to the crowds if she wants a boy or a girl. “I hope it’s a girl,” Katy said to the crowd.
