Katy Perry EXCLUSIVE: Singer shows off post-baby body
Katy kept things super candid with fans throughout her pregnancy, sharing stories about her changing body and what she had learned about the realities of being pregnant.
Well, during an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday, Katy shared some of the lessons she’s learned about life after giving birth — namely, that nobody ever talks about it.
“What they don’t tell you is nobody talks about the first six weeks after you have the baby,” Katy said. “Oh my god, that’s wild! What a roller coaster!”
The 36-year-old went on to recall her own experience of the day after giving birth, which just so happened to also be the release date for her fifth album, Smile.
“I had my fifth album coming out… You know, every other album cycle, there’d be some kind of celebration or party or dinner, whatever, you know,” Katy said.
She continued: “This time, I was giving birth to the greatest gift of all for me, and then my album came out the next day, and I was in the hospital, and I could not wipe my own butt.”
New mom Katy Perry shares secret to her post-baby body, and it’s a quick fix
In a hilarious TikTok and Instagram video, Katy can be seen all dolled up in a stunning royal blue over coat, huge dangling earring, studded heels and her blonde hair cascading in waves as she struts down her dressing room and the words: ‘power. attitude, style, confidence, sex,’, splash across the screen, until she walks right upto the camera and pulls her overcoat up to reveal every mommy, and also woman’s post festive season, best friend to suck the extra pounds in instantaneously, Spanx!
Katy captioned the video, “#whatmakesawoman #foryou”, referencing a track in her latest album Smile, and also as a nod to the things women do to live up to society’s beauty standards. And fans couldn’t get enough of the pop singer’s honest and funny video. One commented, “Katy Perry speaking truth, spanx are a postpartum woman’s best friend.” This isn’t the first time Katy has shown a very real, not so picture perfect side of motherhood. Earlier in August, just a few days after giving birth to her daughter Katy posted a photo of herself on Instagram, make-up free, no hair done, rocking a nursing bra and gray underwear. She funnily wrote, “Hair and make-up by exhaustion”.
She funnily had her song It’s Not The End of The World playing against the image. Talking about her relationship with husband Orlando, and how being pregnant and at home during the lockdown was, she said to in a May 2020 chat with Sirius Hits 1, “God bless him, he’s still here, which is amazing and commendable. Because I have definitely tested him and been like, ‘Oh yeah? You think you can handle me? Let’s see it!’”
When was Katy Perry’s child born?
Perry and her fiancé Orlando Bloom recently welcomed a new addition into their family earlier this month — their newborn daughter, Daisy Dove.
“We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter,” Perry and Bloom, 43, said in their post.
The new addition is the first child for Perry and second for Bloom, who got engaged in February 2019 after first being linked romantically back in January 2016. Bloom also shares 9½-year-old son Flynn with ex-wife Miranda Kerr.
And as Perry enjoys her role as a first-time mom, she continues to promote her new album with an array of themed music videos.
On Sunday, the singer reminisced on her pre-baby body and said her song “Champagne Problems” would get fans dancing as she premiered a video for the disco track off her latest studio album.
In the music video, Perry looks like a disco-queen in a plunging sparkly dress and jewel drop headpiece. Perry also released the comic book-themed video for her song, “Tucked,” over the weekend.
6 Ways to Get Back in Shape After Baby
Getting back in shape after baby doesn’t have to be stressful. In fact, exercising will make you feel good too—it’s been proven to help with postnatal depression. Here are six ways to bounce back.
Start walking as soon as you can after giving birth (as long as your doctor gives you clearance). This will get your body moving and burning calories. Buy a fitness tracker and measure your daily activity then gradually start to increase your steps every week by 10 percent as you get stronger.
Perform kegels and pelvic tilts as soon as one to two days after delivery, depending on what kind of delivery you have and as long as your doctor approves. This will increase the blood supply to the perineum and help speed up the recovery process. By exhaling and drawing in your belly (which activates the corset-like muscle called the transverse abdominals), you’ll get a strong foundation to get your abs back as your hips and abdominals start moving back together.
Do basic crunches. Watch for a separation in your abdominals by placing your finger just above the belly button as you crunch. If you can get three or more fingers in between your abs you have diastisis recti (abdominal separation). If this is the case, it’s important that you try to draw the abs back together first before you start any strenuous abdominal work especially rotation. Try placing your hands either side of the separation and manually draw them together as you perform a basic crunch. This will re-train the abs back together in their natural alignment.” If the separation gets worse or does not get better consult with your doctor or a women’s health physical therapist.
Breastfeed—as though you needed another reason, it’s a fast way to shrink the uterus back down to pre-pregnancy size. And, it burns up to 600 calories a day! The catch: you still need to watch your food portions, eat a well-balanced diet and exercise or else you migh fall in to the breast feeding diet trap and wonder why you’re not getting back to your pre-pregnancy weight!
Get into strength training and small bursts of cardio. Not only is it time efficient for the busy mom, but it also increases your metabolism and burns the baby fat. Try doing some squats with shoulder raises and lunges with triceps extensions then shuffle from side to side for a minute to get the heart rate up. Directions: Lift your arms to shoulder height leading with your elbows with your palms facing downwards. Then gently lower the rams back to the side of the body. Bending your elbows close to the torso with your palms facing towards the body. Extend the elbows behind the body squeezing the top of the arms for that extra burn. Then bend the elbows back to start position. Doing this will challenge your body’s musculature and will help you lose the weight and tone the body back to its pre-pregnancy state.
Spice up your cardio by adding some hill intervals (short bursts of higher intensity drills) to work the glutes, hamstrings and quads. Try to finish your cardio (walking, hiking or gently jogging) with walking lunges and modified push-ups with the knees on the floor.
