While appearing as a guest on “Live with Kelly and Ryan” on Feb. 8, singer Katy Perry spoke about juggling work with being a mom. Daisy Dove, her daughter with actor Orlando Bloom, was born in August 2020, and Perry has never shied away from sharing the most candid motherhood experiences with her fans.
That includes pumping and breastfeeding, which made returning to work on “American Idol” when Daisy was just a few weeks old “so intense.”
“I did start filming American Idol Season 4 after I’d given birth, five weeks later,” Perry said. “And I didn’t plan that. But it was like, ‘Oh, my God!’ It was so intense, you know? Giving birth, and then going back to work and breastfeeding, and going like – holy crap! This is what women do? Oh my God!”
Mom of three Kelly Ripa agreed, saying, “It’s kinda amazing. It’s like you can’t believe what your body is capable of, right?”
