"You can love someone and still not have to let them into your life.

"[Daisy] has changed my life and still continues to change my life. I created space for her and therefore didn't have the extra time that I have had in the past 35 years, and so I had to create space and I'm glad I did.

The new mother said she makes Daisy her priortiy 

"I think you realise that when you become a mother you just have to focus on being a mom and it's not because you don't love other people – you just want to be a great mom and a lot of stuff falls away when you become a mom.

"It is the best job in the world and I highly recommend it, when you're ready." Katy also praised Orlando for his support, adding: "I have an incredible partner who supports me and lifts me up and he's a great guy."
