Katy Perry has set the record straight about motherhood being a full-time job, a month after becoming a mum to daughter Daisy.

The Roar singer, 35, and her fiancé Orlando Bloom, 43, welcomed their baby girl last month.

Perry has now opened up about her first weeks of motherhood in a string of posts on Twitter, in which she shared her respect for other mums and said it was a “misconception" that raising a child wasn’t a full-time job.
