It’s been just six weeks since she gave birth to baby girl Daisy Dove and Katy Perry is already making moves and looking absolutely fab!

The 35-year-old returned to set as a judge in the new season of American Idol after welcoming her first child with actor Orlando Bloom at the end of August.

“It’s amazing. I'm so grateful for this opportunity and for this job, and to be able to continue to inspire other people to go after their dreams,” she said in a recent interview on being a working mom. 

“I mean, my life just feels very full and whole. And you know, it's hard a little bit these first couple of days away and not being able to be there. But Daddy's doing a great job. Daddy has stepped in," she shared.

Katy joined American Idol in 2018 and shares the judges panel with music legend Lionel Richie and country artist Luke Bryan as well as host Ryan Seacrest.

Known for her head-turning outfits on past seasons of the sing-off reality show, this week she showed off her post-baby bod all dolled up in a quirky black and white cow-print ensemble.

Inspired by her new role as mom and milk provider for her babe, Katy rocked the statement look with puffy sleeves, fingerless gloves, a hat and even a matching floor-length cape. Not forgetting flawless hair, makeup and a beaming smile to go with it.
