9 Celebrities Who Are Actually Real-Life Superheroes (PHOTOS)

Lisa Fogarty | Feb 27, 2014 Celebrities

While everyone in Internet Land assumed yesterday that Katy Perry was having the worst day ever -- considering her rumored split with fiance John Mayer -- it turns out the strong singer so wasn't nursing a pint of ice cream on her couch: she was helping to bring a new life into the world!

Katy revealed on her Twitter account that she has what it takes to make it as a midwife: "Finally you can add 'helps delivers babies in living rooms' to my resume! It's been a miracle of a day...Auntie Katy aka Stylist Auntie." Holy awesomeness, Katy helped deliver a baby at someone's home! It's still unknown whose baby she helped deliver -- her sister has been pregnant, so it's quite possible she is literally an Auntie. What is super-clear: the girl is out there making things happen in this world and helping others. And the same can be said about these celebrities, who have all lent their superhero powers to the planet at one point or another.
