Perry, 36, also confirmed to the host that having Daisy was, in fact, a conscious decision for her and partner Orlando Bloom, saying that she has "family, support and an incredible fiancé" by her side as she navigates new motherhood.
"He's done this before, he has a 10-year-old son — so as much as I was like, 'I don't need to hear all those stories,' they actually helped," she continued of Bloom, 44. "[It's] like, 'Oh, you've had a run of this, you know how to do this.' "
"So he's been amazing, incredible, and we're so in love and so grateful," Perry raved.

The "Never Worn White" singer went on to praise her fiancé for being "such a great support" in the delivery room, right down to multitasking (i.e., being by Perry's side while also managing to film some of the experience).
"We had a little boombox. He was there and he was so wonderful, and just holding my hand and looking into my eyes," she told Kimmel, 53.
Later, sharing more details of daughter's name, the American Idol judge said, "Daisy, to me, means purity, and Dove means peace and Bloom feels like it means joy, so it's very, 'Pure, peace and joy.' "
The singer also called for more attention on the postpartum period, revealing that she "could not wipe [her] own butt" right after giving birth. "Nobody talks about the first six weeks after you have the baby. Oh my God, that's wild, what a roller coaster!" Perry said.
