Katy Perry's daughter "is everything" she was "ever looking for," the singer said during an interview with LVR Magazine. 

Perry welcomed daughter Daisy Dove a little over a year ago with fiancé Orlando Bloom and recently, the first-time mom opened up about parenting and being "grateful" for lockdown. 

Under normal circumstances, she says she would have spent more time working away from her baby

"I was grateful for the opportunity to be present. I still would have been, but I would have had FOMO scratching at me just a hot bit," she said.

Perry also shared that she's stayed away from scheduling her baby's days because she didn't want to be "that mom". 

"In the beginning, I worried about a schedule but decided I won't be that mom. All that matters is everyone is happy". 

She says that she loves being able to parent the way that she had always hoped to be parented but added that she doesn't think anyone ever really "gets it right".
