For a cover story interview for LuisaViaRoma’s first-ever issue of LVR Magazine, Perry spoke on motherhood and her approach to 1-year-old, whom she shares with Orlando Bloom.
“I was grateful for the opportunity to be present. I mean, I still would have been, but I would have had FOMO scratching at me just a hot bit,” she told the outlet about having a baby during a pandemic. “Not really, though. She is everything I was ever looking for.”
While Bloom, 44, shoots the second season of Carnival Row in Prague, Perry informed the outlet she tries to be around him as much as possible.
“We visit him a lot, and I love carrying her on me or going for walks all day with the stroller,” she said. “She points at things and says ‘da,’ to which I say, ‘yes, that is a cat,’ or ‘that is a tree.'”
Perry described Daisy as “adaptable and happy,” and also, very on schedule.
“Her schedule fluctuates. In the beginning, I worried about a schedule but decided I won’t be that mom. All that matters is that everyone is happy,” she said, adding that she loves having the “opportunity to do [parenting] in a way that one hopes it was done for them, maybe better. I don’t know if anyone gets it right.”
“1 year ago today is the day my life began… Happy first Birthday my Daisy Dove, my love. ❤️,” the singer recently wrote to Twitter.
In May, Katy shared how her then 9-month-old daughter hit two big developmental milestones.
“She’s crawling and she has one tooth,” Perry revealed during an appearance on On-Air with Ryan Seacrest. “It’s barely poked through though.”
“Actually it’s kind of like one of my teeth,” she joked. “I have pretty good teeth on the top but if you were to actually see my bottom teeth, they’re a little interesting, but I think that’s character!”
The singer also revealed in L’Officiel‘s Summer 2021 issue how at first, she was “nervous to be a mom,” saying she went on a “healing journey” to understand why she had that insecurity about motherhood.
“Now I get it. Now I realize this is it,” said Katy. “This is the living part. Every day I’m like, ‘When can we go for a walk? When can we go for a swim?’ There was a good 12 years where none of that smallness existed.”
