Pop star Katy Perry, who welcomed her first child, a baby girl with fiancé Orlando Bloom, shared that she stopped shaving her legs after giving birth.
Katy made the statement while judging the singing reality show American Idol. While praising a contestant’s performance, she said, “As a new mother, I don't have very much time, so I have quit shaving my legs. But when you sang, the hair on my legs grew an inch and a half. So, full-body chills."
Perry even went on to put up her legs on the table for her co-judges to fact-check, while warning, “Don’t touch.”
The "Firework" singer took to Twitter and shared the viral moment stating, "An actual live look at my leg hair while I hear @casscoleman sing."
Katy returned to her professional commitments months after giving birth. Last year, she opened up about being a working mother.
The 'Daisies' singer took to Twitter to talk about working while raising her child simultaneously.
She began by stating that the popular mindset that "being a mom isn't a full-time job" is actually a "popular misconception." "Popular misconception: being a mom isn't a full-time job," she tweeted.
Perry went on to talk about the same in a series of other tweets and said that when a mother returns to work, she has actually returned from another "full-time job of being a mom" and not from "time off." "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," she tweeted.
"Part 3: call your mom and tell her you to love and appreciate her and advocate for paid family leave!," another tweet by the singer said.
She ended the series of tweets by stating she loves her job.
"Part 4. I love my job," she tweeted.
Perry and Bloom who serve as the Goodwill Ambassadors of UNICEF welcomed their girl child - Daisy Dove Bloom - in August 2020.
