Katy Perry’s postpartum selfie has everyone talking

Leave it to new mom Katy Perry to be awesomely honest about the reality of life postpartum. The singer just welcomed a baby girl named Daisy Dove this past week with her fiancé, actor Orlando Bloom. And just days later, she oh-so bravely bared her body — still swollen tummy and all — in a pair of mesh maternity underwear and a nursing bra (via People). 

In addition to her courage in sharing a selfie, in her bathroom no less, and mere days after giving birth to her first child, we love the Smile singer’s sense of humor even more. Because Perry showed off her look as though she were on the VMAs red carpet, complete with hair and makeup by “exhaustion.” Her facial expression backed up the reality of the first few days (heck, weeks and months!) with a newborn. Katy, you look beautiful, but girl, you also look so, so tired!

Katy Perry always keeps it real

It’s no surprise that this is one star who isn’t trying sugarcoat pregnancy and motherhood. In 2011, while married to Russell Brand, Perry said this about how many kids she wanted to have: “If it doesn’t hurt the first time, I’ll keep popping them out” (via Us Weekly). When she finally revealed her pregnancy, and admitted the secret was hard to keep, she also tweeted, “Omg so glad I don’t have to suck it in anymore. Or carry around a big purse lol.”

It’s the candid spirit of the singer that makes us positively giddy to see what else she’ll share about her motherhood journey. First we get a glimpse of the sheer normalcy of what it’s like for Perry to be a brand new mom. We’re guessing real breastfeeding stories and tales of being up all night aren’t far behind. We’re in, Katy! Thanks so much for always keeping it real, even if it means posing in postpartum panties!
