Katy Perry went on to credit transcendental meditation for helping her find time to take a break during the day. "There's been so many different ways TM has blessed me, but in this particular moment, as a new mother, I take 20 minutes," she said, adding that meditation gives her "the deepest rest" that she has been "desperate for as a reset."

 

Katy Perry is getting real about her life as a new mom. The 36-year-old singer opened up about motherhood during an event "Meditate America" on Thursday, telling celebrity guests Hugh Jackman and his wife Deborra-Lee Furness that a major "challenge" she's faced since welcoming 3-month-old daughter Daisy Dove has been catching up on sleep.

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

Bloom spoke about his daughter when he appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in October, revealing that Daisy resembles a mixture of himself, his mother and Perry.


"She sort of looked a little bit like my mom so we got a little bit confused because Katy's breastfeeding this mini-me slash my mom," Bloom explained, before joking, "Who's she gonna look like next?"
