Katy Perry has been praised by fans for keeping it 'real' as she shows people the reality of motherhood.

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom welcomed their first child, Daisy Dove Bloom, four days ago.

Having a newborn meant that Katy Perry couldn't take part in this year's COVID-safe VMAs, but that didn't stop her showing off her look for the night.

Instead of a classic ballgown, Katy Perry posed candidly in a bra and underwear to show fans the realities of having a baby.
