Katy Perry is a very new mum to baby Daisy, but by the looks of things, she's getting into the swing of things pretty quickly. In a new video shared on her Instagram account, the singer can be seen breast pumping - and she looks like an absolute pro.

In the footage, Katy is sitting on a chair facing away from the camera wearing pyjama bottoms, a dressing gown around her waist, and a nude bandeau top. She then turns to look down the lens, and a breast pump is visible on her boobs. But the purpose of the video wasn't just to normalise breastfeeding and everything that goes along with it (although that was a very empowering offshoot). Instead, it was part of a compilation video led by Jane Fonda, encouraging people to register to vote in the upcoming US election.

"Pumped to vote," Katy says in her clip. We see what you did there 馃槒 .

Posting the video to Instagram, Katy wrote, "Okay so @orlandobloom and I have different views on what it means to get pumped these days," along with the cow emoji (we feel ya). "But whoever said pumping isn鈥檛 a sport... I鈥檇 like to twist their nipples clockwise for one week straight," the Smile singer added.

"We鈥檙e getting in shape for the race of our lives this November and it has never been more important to #ExerciseThatVote," she continued, encouraging people to check their registration status as the deadlines loom.

Katy is joined in the voting video by Amy Schumer, Kerry Washington, Ashley Benson, Vanessa Hudgens and more. As well, of course, as OG workout queen Jane Fonda. And the reaction seems positive - both for Katy's bold breast pumping action and for the encouragement to vote.

"I [don't] even live in the USA but after this video I want to vote!!!" wrote one person. "A politically vocal mom馃憦馃憦" added another.

Katy Perry and her fianc茅 Orlando Bloom welcomed their baby girl, Daisy Dove Bloom, into the world on August 26, and the couple are clearly already smitten with their new addition.

"We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter," the new parents said in a statement released by UNICEF, a charity for which Katy and Orlando are both Goodwill Ambassadors.

Since then, Katy has been posting about her motherhood experience. One particular highlight was when the 35-year-old showed off her MTV VMAs "red carpet look" from the comfort of her home on Instagram, and she went for full real-life-new-mama-chic. Katy could be seen wearing some comfortable high-waisted underwear over her still-present bump (because it doesn't just disappear like magic as soon as the baby is out!) along with a breast pump bra.

What. A. Woman.
