Speaking with Extra on the red carpet for the 2022 CMA Awards on Wednesday, where she performed the song Where We Started alongside Thomas Rhett, she spoke about balancing her Las Vegas residency and her mom duties.

Detailing her days as a working mom, she said: "I have a residency in Las Vegas and I get to literally drop her off at preschool and then go play a show in Las Vegas."

She explained that no matter how late she gets back home from performing, she always stays up to prepare for Daisy's following day, maintaining she loves nothing more than preparing her lunches, even when it's almost midnight.

She detailed how much her life has changed for the better since Daisy's arrival, calling her her "little present" – Katy turned 38 on 25 October – and she said: "She is the reason for everything. I get so much from her and, like, my sense of value."

For her recent birthday, the performer shared an adorable photo of Orlando, Daisy and her placing their hands together, and she adorably captioned it with: "Every time I blow a candle out I always wish for you. 38 and grateful."
