The singer gave birth to Daisy Dove Bloom – whom she has with her fiancé Orlando Bloom – in August and has said being a new mother has taken up so much of her time that she no longer bothers with shaving her legs.

During a recent episode of 'American Idol', she revealed that her hairs stood on end when she listened to Cassandra Coleman sing. "As a new mother, I don't have very much time, so I've quit shaving my legs. But when you sang, the hair on my legs grew an inch and a half. Full-body chills! It was amazing."

The 'Never Worn White' hitmaker even gave her fellow judges a glimpse of her stubble as she stretched her legs out on the table.

Meanwhile, Katy recently admitted having a baby was the best decision she'd ever made. Though she initially didn't want to hear about Orlando's past experiences when his and ex-wife Miranda Kerr's son Flynn was a baby, she soon realised how helpful it was that he'd been through babyhood before.

"It’s the best decision I’ve ever made in my entire life. I have family and support, and I’ve got an incredible fiancé who has done this before – he has a 10-year-old son. As much as I was a little bit like, ‘I don’t need to hear all those stories,’ they actually helped. They’re like, ‘Oh, you’ve had a run at this. You know how to do this.'"
