Katy Perry may be busy with her career, but she and Orlando Bloom don’t hire a full-time nanny for their two-year-old daughter, Daisy.
The 37-year-old singer said during an episode of “Smartless” podcast, “I am working a lot, and I’ve always worked a lot.”
She continued, “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 explained that she switches to “mom mode” whenever she’s not working.
She added, “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. And yes, I have the no-sleep shakes, but I’m doing mom mode today.”
The “Fireworks” singer also opened up that Daisy has already started to talk and it upsets her whenever she finds out that her daughter is using language that she didn’t teach her herself.
“She’s 2, so she’s at the point where she’s saying new words everyday,” she explained. “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.’”
On the other hand, she also couldn’t help but gush over her fiancé. She said, “Dad is the best.”
In November 2021, she told the Wall Street Journal, “I try to start my day out with my daughter, playing and having some floor time with her. Reading some books. It usually varies what time we’re waking up, 7 or 8 a.m. Sometimes I get to sleep in and Daddy takes her until 9, which is super. But we do breakfast together.”
The singer and the “Lord of the Rings” star welcomed their first child together in August 2020. They got engaged in February 2019 after dating for three years. Bloom was married to Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr from 2010 to 2013. They share a son, Flynn, who’s 11 years old.
In May, the singer said that seeing Bloom being a “great dad” to Flynn inspired her to want to have children of their own. She told “Dear Chelsea” podcast that time, “That definitely primally influenced me, Something inside of me said, ‘You, mid-30s, this man is nice. Must breed.’”
