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.

“Popular misconception: being a mom isn’t a full time job,” tweeted the singer.
“Part 2: when a mom finally goes back to work (whatever profession they do) it’s not like they been coming from months of ‘time off...’ she’s coming from a full time job... of being a mom, lol.”
In a third tweet, the star told fans: “Call your mom and tell her you love and appreciate her and advocate for paid family leave!”
“Part 4. I love my job,” she added.
The star’s comments struck a chord on social media, where plenty of other parents chimed in to agree.
“Supernanny” Jo Frost was among those to respond.
“Very true indeed,” she tweeted. “In fact at home requires all of you in a very different capacity.
“Congrats on ya lil one Katy.”
Perry and Bloom welcomed Daisy in August, saying on Instagram at the time that they were “floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter”.
Daisy is the singer’s first child, while Pirates Of The Caribbean star Bloom shares son Flynn, nine, with his ex-wife Miranda Kerr.
The actor was married to model Kerr from 2010 to 2013.
Perry was married to comedian Russell Brand from 2010 to 2012.
