After months of desperately waiting and the Smile singer excitedly gushing about her for months, she is finally here- Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have welcomed their first child, their newborn daughter who they have given the adorable name of Daisy Dove Bloom.
Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom got engaged back in February 2019 after months of on-and-off romance and dating rumours. The singer-songwriter had announced the arrival of her baby in March 2020 via the music video of her song “Never Worn White”, which was soon followed by the revelation that the couple would be becoming parents to a baby girl.
The Grammy-nominated singer and her fiancé became parents to their first child, Daisy Dove, on 26th August and have announced their daughter’s arrival via UNICEF as both Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are Goodwill Ambassadors for the charity. They shared a black and white image of their little angel holding on to her dad’s finger as the new mom held her daughter’s wrist.
“We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter,” said Katy Perry (35) and Orlando Bloom (43) in their statement to UNICEF, sharing the happy news with their ardent fans.
While the couple is yet to drop pictures of their baby girl (given the fact Perry has been very open about her pregnancy, it will hopefully happen soon), they did share that Daisy Dove’s arrival was “peaceful’ and without any last-minute hurdles.
But they are also aware that they are “lucky” to have been able to avail the experience as “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 a greater 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 added.
Thus, Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have begun the celebrations on the arrival of their daughter by setting up a UNICEF donation page on baby Daisy’s behalf in hopes that it will help “every expecting mother” and provide her “access to a trained health worker and access to quality healthcare
“By supporting them, you are supporting a safe start to life and reimagining a healthier world for every child. We hope your ♥️ can bloom with generosity,” they added.
While the birth of Daisy Dove Bloom is Katy Perry’s first experience at being a mommy, Orlando Bloom is now the father of two kids- he shared 9-year-old Flynn, his only child with ex-wife Miranda Kerr.
