Taylor Swift Gave Katy Perry a Hand-Crafted Baby Gift and She Loves It
Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom recently welcomed their first child together. They welcomed their daughter, Daisy Dove Bloom on August 26 of 2020, and have been receiving a ton of support from their famous friends.
In fact, one of Perry’s most famous friends, Taylor Swift, actually sent her a personalized gift just for the baby. Swift hand-crafted the gift and Perry couldn’t be more grateful.
Taylor Swift sent Katy Perry a personalized baby gift
Perry opened up about her child birthing experience and motherhood during a recent interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live. She revealed that Swift sent her an embroidered baby blanket as a gift and that Swift even took the time to embroider it herself.
“She sure did, yeah,” Perry said. “Yeah, it was amazing, it was very, very thoughtful. There’s like little inscription and everything, she’s very sweet.”
When Kimmel pressed Perry about whether or not Swift actually embroidered the blanket, she wasn’t sure what to say.
“How do you know for sure she did that herself?” Kimmel asked. “Isn’t she recording like 11 albums a year, how is that possible?”
“I didn’t know that then,” Perry said. “But I think, you know, I don’t know. I mean, she did. I take her for her word, I think.”
Katy Perry doesn’t need lavish gifts from her famous friends
Later in the interview, Kimmel asked if any of Perry’s famous friends felt obligated to get her particularly lavish or memorable gifts. She wasn’t sure but ensured that she didn’t need any gifts that are Instagram-worthy.
“I don’t know, I mean look—all you need is love, and you know, a roof over your head, and some milk, and some diapers,” Perry said. “That’s really all you need. All the rest, you know, you don’t really need any of it.”
She says the first 6 weeks after childbirth are a roller coaster
Perry knew that motherhood was going to be a challenge she wasn’t prepared for, but there were still some unexpected surprises. In particular, she had no idea how intense the first six weeks of motherhood would be.
“What I will tell you is nobody talks about the first six weeks after you have the baby, oh my God!” Perry bellowed. “That’s wild, what a roller coaster!”
Katy Perry released an album in the midst of childbirth
Perry’s child birthing experience was also intensified by the fact that she released her fifth album Smile while hospitalized. It was a new experience for Perry, who’s used to having large events around the time of her released.
“I had my fifth album coming out, … and every other album cycle there’d be some kind of celebration or party or dinner, whatever,” Perry said. “But this time, I was giving birth to the greatest gift of all, for me, and then my album came out the next day and I was in the hospital and I could not wipe my own butt.”
