Katy Perry has taken a more traditional mother role in choosing to be the sole care giver of her child as much as she can. Similar to a mother who has to go to work, Katy Perry has to take time off of being a mother occasionally for her career, however, she has stated clearly that she doesn’t want her baby to be raised by a nanny.
Pop star Katy Perry doesn’t want to outsource motherhood to her nanny — at least, not completely. The 37-year-old singer explained her parenting perspective during an appearance on the “SmartLess” podcast this week, per Page Six. “I am working a lot, and I’ve always worked a lot,” Perry said. “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.”
“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.” The “Fireworks” singer shares her daughter with fiance Orlando Bloom. During the interview, she discussed how Daisy is starting to learn new words at a quick pace, which makes Perry feel emotional. “She’s 2, so she’s at the point where she’s saying new words every day,” she 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.’”
This wasn’t the first time Perry talked about how she approached her motherhood role.
“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,” Perry told the Wall Street Journal in November 2021. “Sometimes I get to sleep in and Daddy takes her until 9, which is super. But we do breakfast together.” Besides taking time to raise her daughter, Perry has also discussed how Hollywood doesn’t represent most of the nation. The Daily Wire previously reported on the pop star moving to Kentucky and gaining perspective.
Katy Perry’s role as a mother is heartwarming, and more women should be encouraged to fill a similar role, when it financially can be done. Many celebrity children are thrown to the side, and a nanny essentially acts as the mother of the child – but Katy Perry doesn’t want that to be the case.
