"Firework" singer Katy Perry has kept her career going after giving birth to her daughter Daisy Dove. She still performs, has a residency in Las Vegas, and is a judge on American Idol, so her schedule is pretty full. But on a recent podcast called Smartless, Katy revealed that she's not hiring a full-time nanny anytime soon.
Katy Perry Explains Why She Doesn't Want to Hire a Full-Time Nanny For Her and Orlando Bloom's 2-Year-Old Daughter
Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have been together since 2016, even though there was a period when they briefly broke up. They first met at a Golden Globes after-party and immediately connected. Three years later on Valentine's Day, he proposed with a ruby engagement ring. In March 2020, she announced to the world that she was pregnant with their first child. On August 26 of that year, they welcomed their daughter Daisy Dove Bloom.
Katy said that she's "always worked a lot" and she loves what she does. But she doesn't want to let that get in the way of motherhood.
"I have a wonderful nanny, but I don't have a full-time nanny because I feel like if I had a full-time nanny then I would never be able to know how to care for my daughter like I'm meant to," she said.
She says she's all about her daughter on her days off. “It doesn’t matter if I’ve had a show that goes to 11 p.m. the night before, I’m waking up at 6 o’clock and we’re gonna go and do breakfast,” she said. “And yes, I have the no-sleep shakes, but I’m doing mom mode today.”
“She’s 2, so she’s at the point where she’s saying new words everyday,” Katy said. “And the other day she was saying some words that I didn’t teach her, and I was like ‘Damn it. That doesn’t feel good.’”
Katy also said that fiancé Orlando, 45, has been a great help. "Dad is the best," she gushed. Orlando is also father to 11-year-old son Flynn from his previous marriage to model Miranda Kerr, who has said in previous interviews that she is happy about the blended family they have all created together.
