Katy Perry Gets Candid About Motherhood

If you were to describe motherhood in one word, what would you say? Many may call it a responsibility, and we agree with them to some extent. But there’s more to being a mom than just taking care of the little one. It’s like being reborn again and experiencing everything in slo-mo. Living all the little moments and enjoying them, be it changing diapers several times a day or spending quality time with the baby. 

At least that’s how Katy Perry feels about it!

Katy Perry’s touching interview

Recently, while appearing on Variety‘s 2021 Power of Women issue, Perry described how motherhood changed her life for good, and also shared all the things that she learned from her baby girl, Daisy Dove Bloom. The songstress said that she’s still 10 pounds heavier than when she started, and that’s fine with her. She’s in no rush to get back to a particular shape, and is currently focusing on her and Daisy’s happiness and mental health.

The 36-year-old revealed that the first six months of her pregnancy were a real game-changer. The increased hormones, excitement, and nervousness about bringing a life into this world and, most importantly, being totally responsible for the kid was a life-changing experience. On top of that, putting someone else before herself was the best feeling she ever felt.

Referring to social media’s projection of motherhood, Perry said that it’s skewed. She added that at some point, things that are supposed to fade away are gone, and life becomes more balanced. The Roar singer admitted that she loves living in the real world more now. Speaking about what she learned from her daughter, Perry said she never knew what unconditional love was until Daisy came into her life. Though her mother (Mary Perry) loved her unconditionally, she never felt it for someone until she gave birth to Daisy. Now when she reflects on her life from a child’s point of view, she feels her art has always been playful. 

Taking her work with children from the Make-A-Wish foundation into consideration, she commented that to relate to kids when you’re in your mid-30s is just amazing. Plus, being a fun adult in the room is the biggest gift one could ever get. The singer even credited her work with kids to prepare her for motherhood. She said being an entertainer to kids and working with them has given her a gist of what being a mother looks like. But then, it’s not even close to what one feels when they actually experience it.

An upcoming birthday bash

When asked how the Firework singer celebrated her daughter’s first birthday, which fell on August 26, 2021, Perry said she’s yet to celebrate it. The singer explained that since her partner Orlando Bloom isn’t in town, she had to postpone the celebration, and once he’s home, she’ll plan something for her little munchkin. Till then, she’s just enjoying her time with her.
