Elsewhere, Katy cut a casual figure in a white tracksuit set and Birkenstock sandals as she headed out for a walk in the sun in Los Angeles on Monday.

She tucked her brunette locks beneath a baseball cap with 'Mama' printed on it and sported a black face mask, while she kept her essentials in a black handbag. 

On August 26, 2020, Perry gave birth to her daughter Daisy Dove, who she shares with her fiance Orlando Bloom.

In September, the performer admitted social media gave her a false impression of what motherhood would be like.

'I think all of social media is skewed. It's a big, ole, fat echo chamber and the real determinator is the algorithm,' she mused.

'I really enjoyed my experience. I'm still 10 pounds bigger than when I started, but I'm not in a rush, Katy admitted. 'It's been a year. I'm more interested in her happiness and my happiness and mental health. Hormones are … pretty interesting.'

She also recounted how difficult the early days of motherhood were after she gave birth to little Daisy.

'As a new mom, those first six weeks are like, 'What?' It's just the biggest life change ever,' she said.

'You're responsible for someone's well-being that can't even hold their head up. It's a real shift, and you become not No. 1 on the call sheet.'

Even though it was difficult adjusting to the changes, being a mother gave her a new perspective on life.

'It's the best. Everything that's supposed to fade away, fades away, and a balance comes in,' she shared. 'I like to live more in the real world for now.'

 Katy also revealed that her work with the Make-A-Wish Foundation had taught her to 'see through the eyes of a child' and to truly understand the nature of unconditional love, which she later felt for her daughter.
