Katy Perry Says Daughter Daisy Dove ‘Changed My Life’
By Movieguide® Staff
Nearly six months ago, award-winning singer Katy Perry and actor Orlando Bloom welcomed their first daughter, Daisy Dove Bloom. According to Perry, parenthood has already impacted their lives as she prioritizes Daisy.
“She changed my life and still continues to change my life,” Perry reflected in an Instagram story. “I think that you realize that when you become a mother… you just have to focus on being a mom. And it’s not because you don’t love other people, it’s not because of anything besides you just want to be a great mom.”
Perry noted that her relationship with her daughter has become even more important to her than her successful music career.
“So a lot of stuff falls away when you become a mom and it is the best job in the world,” Perry said. “I highly recommend it when you’re ready.”
Perry said she’s also finding joy in watching her little baby grow.
“I see my daughter change so much in the past five months and looking back at photos it’s like, ‘Whoa,'” Perry said. “You see time in human form and it’s like… Now she’s got chunky cheeks.”
Perry continued: “In a way, it’s really encouraged me to be even more present and to value every day. And all we have is this moment. That’s what’s promised is this moment and nothing else.”
Perry also noted that becoming a mother also showed her the time and energy that motherhood requires.
“Popular misconception: being a mom isn’t a full time job,” Perry shared on Twitter. “when a mom finally goes back to work (whatever profession they do) it’s not like they been coming from months of ‘time off…’ she’s coming from a full time job… of being a mom, lol.”
