Katy Perry has “quit shaving [her] legs” since becoming a mother.
The 36-year-old singer gave birth to Daisy Dove Bloom – whom she has with her fiancé Orlando Bloom – in August, and has said being a new mother has taken up so much of her time that she no longer bothers with shaving her legs.
Katy spoke during Sunday’s (04.04.21) episode of ‘American Idol’, when she revealed her hairs stood on end when she listened to contestant Cassandra Coleman sing.
She said: “As a new mother I don’t have very much time, so I’ve quit shaving my legs. But when you sang, the hair on my legs grew an inch and a half. Full-body chills! It was amazing.”
The ‘Never Worn White’ hitmaker even gave her fellow judges a glimpse of her stubble, as she stretched her legs out on the table.
Meanwhile, Katy recently admitted having a baby was the “best decision” she’d ever made, and though she initially didn’t want to hear about Orlando’s past experiences when his and ex-wife Miranda Kerr’s son Flynn was a baby, she soon realised how helpful it was that he’d been through babyhood before.
She said: “It’s the best decision I’ve ever made in my entire life. I have family and support, and I’ve got an incredible fiancé who has done this before – he has a 10-year-old son.
“As much as I was a little bit like, ‘I don’t need to hear all those stories,’ they actually helped. They’re like, ‘Oh, you’ve had a run at this. You know how to do this.'”
Ultimately, Katy thinks Orlando has been an “amazing” father to both Daisy and Flynn, and the couple are “so in love” and she couldn’t be happier.
She gushed: “He’s been amazing, incredible, and we’re so in love and we’re so grateful.”
