After giving birth to her adorable daughter Daisy in August of 2020, Katy Perry has been enjoying life as a new mom. During an Instagram live last week, the artist revealed how motherhood has impacted her and how precious Daisy has brought so much positivity into her and Orlando Bloom's lives.

"She changed my life and still continues to change my life," said Perry during the live. "I think 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." This has been an adjustment for Katy, as she typically has an extremely busy work schedule, but as a loving mother, she's learned to prioritize baby Daisy.

"So a lot of stuff falls on you when you become a mom, and it is the best job in the world," Perry continued. "I highly recommend it when you're ready." Katy also revealed that motherhood has taught her to appreciate being present and take in every moment because, especially with babies, time certainly does fly.

"In a way, it's really encouraged me to be even more present and to value every day," explained Perry. "And all we have is this moment. That's what's promised, is this moment and nothing else." But Katy hasn't been doing this alone; She described Orlando Bloom as an "incredible partner." These two have been gushing about their baby girl since the moment she was born.

In October, Bloom told Ellen DeGeneres, "Fortunately, she got those Katy blue eyes, which was perfect." As UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors for the United Nations Children's Fund, Katy and Orlando set up a donation page to help support other expecting mothers get the best possible healthcare. Even with all of the crazy days and long nights, Katy shared that no matter what, "I love my job." And we can't wait for more updates on this beautiful family soon!
