Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers and caretakers — any way you come ??"

Katy Perry Talks Being A Mother

Previously, Perry got pretty candid about what it's like to be a mother. She said that it's both exhausting and rewarding. "No one tells you about the first six weeks of having your first child," she told ET Canada. "What? This is crazy! You're feeding in the same corner of the same room for six weeks straight thinking, 'Will I ever leave this house? And if I do, will they be OK?'"

"The most mundane, beautiful things. You get this surge of joy back and it just makes everything come to life," she continued, "For me, I've learned a lot about presence and that was something that I really wanted to give as a mother is just, 'Yeah, there's a zillion WhatsApp chats on fire, but I'm going to put this down and I'm going to color with you right now for 30 minutes because I love you,'" she explained.

Stil, Perry said that she prefers not to hire a full-time nanny. She wants to be present.

"I am working a lot and I've always worked a lot. I'm kind of a matriarchal figure," she said. "I have a wonderful nanny, but I don't have a full-time nanny because I feel like if I had a full-time nanny then I would never be able to know how to care for my daughter like I'm meant to."
