Congratulations are in order for Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom.
Perry has given birth to the couple’s first child together, a baby girl. The couple, who are Unicef Goodwill ambassadors, announced the news through the charitable organization’s social media. “We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter,” they said. “But we know we’re the lucky ones and not everyone can have a birthing experience as peaceful as ours was. Communities around the world are still experiencing a shortage of healthcare workers and every eleven seconds a pregnant woman or newborn dies, mostly from preventable causes. Since COVID-19 many more newborn lives are at risk because of the increased lack of access to water, soap, vaccines and medicines that prevent diseases. As parents to a newborn, this breaks our hearts, as we empathize with struggling parents now more than ever.” Perry and Bloom then shared a donation page to help at-risk expecting mothers.
They also revealed the name of their newborn: Daisy Dove Bloom.
During a previous livestream, Perry gave fans a sneak peek inside their daughter’s nursery, which she called a “little pink room.” She also showed off some of her tiny baby clothes, which included an Adidas baby onesie.
The singer first revealed her pregnancy back in March, in her music video for Never Worn White. Afterwards, she jokingly commented on the news via Twitter: “Omg so glad I don’t have to suck it in anymore,” she wrote. “Or carry around a big purse.”
The couple got engaged in February 2019. Bloom also shares a nine-year-old son, Flynn, with Miranda Kerr.
