Days after announcing the birth of her first baby, Katy Perry is taking to social media to give fans a candid look at her early moments of motherhood while missing out on the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards.

The 35-year-old announced the birth of her first child with fiancé Orlando Bloom on Wednesday with a sweet photo of the two parents holding the hand of their daughter, who they named Daisy Dove Bloom. On Sunday, Perry is already sharing the reality of being a new mom and crediting her look to exhaustion.

Perry posed for the mirror selfie while outfitted in a nursing bra and maternity underwear while her song “Not the End of the World” from her new album Smile played. She posted a sticker in tribute to the VMAs, an award show she would usually be attending in a designer look.

Despite noting how tired she is in the Instagram story, Perry hasn’t had much of a break since giving birth as her latest album was released just two days later.
