Katy Perry reveals it's been 'challenging' to find sleep even with 'support' three months after welcoming daughter

KATY Perry revealed it's been "challenging" to find sleep even with "support" three months after welcoming daughter.

The singer recently went back to work after giving birth to her daughter, Daisy Dove.

Katy, 36, told Hugh Jackman and his wife Deborra-Lee Furness during David Lynch Foundation's Meditate America virtual event: "I'm a new mother. My daughter – she's such a gift – but there is sometimes a challenge concerning sleep no matter how much support you have.

"But where am I going to get those six hours that I used to get? Where did it go?"

She then revealed that she's able to catch up on her rest and sleep when she meditates for a few minutes.

The Daisies singer said: "There's been so many different ways [transcendental meditation] has blessed me, but in this particular moment, as a new mother, I take 20 minutes."

The new mom does have plenty of her on her plate as she's also scoping out a new home with fiance Orlando Bloom, 43, to bring their daughter into.

However, her fiance must be taking some of the load off her as he dubbed himself the baby whisperer two months ago when talking to Ellen DeGeneres.

"We have a mini-me, mini my mum, and a mini Katy, of course," the Pirates of the Caribbean actor laughed as the disgraced daytime host congratulated him on his newborn.

When Ellen DeGeneres told him that when Katy sent her a picture of their baby, she noticed that Daisy looks like Orlando but that her eyes look like Katy's.

"Yes, the eyes do look like Katy's. But it's funny because when she first came out, I was like 'Oh, it's a mini me,' but fortunately she got those Katy blues, which was perfect," he told her.

"But then she started looking a bit like my mum [Sonia Constance Josephine Copeland], and now it's confusing because Katy is breastfeeding this mini-me, my mom."

The actor continued to talk about how he actually chants a Buddhist mantra to Daisy that he himself also says each morning when he wakes up.

The father of two said: "So now, I would just walk into her room and she hears my voice, and it soothes her, and when I have her, I sorta just chant in her ear, it's rather sweet.

"And Katy's like, 'what?' It's like I'm a baby whisperer, so I'm definitely winning the daddy points."

Orlando and Katy welcomed Daisy Dove Bloom on August 27. 

The proud parents shared the exciting news with a statement on the Unicef website, as they are both Goodwill Ambassadors to the global organization.

They gushed: “We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter.

"But we know we’re the lucky ones and not everyone can have a birthing experience as peaceful as ours was," they said of tough times in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

“Communities around the world are still experiencing a shortage of healthcare workers and every eleven seconds a pregnant woman or newborn dies, mostly from preventable causes. 

“Since COVID-19, many more newborn lives are at risk because of a greater lack of access to water, soap, vaccines and medicines that prevent diseases.”

The lengthy message continued: “As parents to a newborn, this breaks our hearts, as we empathize with struggling parents now more than ever.”

Katy and Orlando then revealed they wanted to use their baby girl's arrival to spread goodness – and encouraged fans to donate what they can to the children's non-profit.

Orlando also shares a son, Flynn, with model Miranda Kerr.
