Katy Perry And Orlando Bloom Announce The Arrival Of Their First Child

Welcome, Daisy Dove Bloom!

She’s finally here! Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have announced the arrival of their baby girl: Daisy Dove Bloom. 

The Grammy-nominated artist and her fiancé announced the news with UNICEF, the organisation they serve as Goodwill Ambassadors for. 

“We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter,” the couple announced in a statement. “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 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 have now established a UNICEF donation page on their new daughter’s behalf, in “celebration of the heart we know our daughter already has.”

This is Perry’s first child and Bloom shares 9-year-old son Flynn with ex-wife Miranda Kerr. 

The couple first announced the news in March, with the singer showing off her growing bump in the music video for her single, ‘Never Worn White’

Speaking on Mix 104.1’s Karson & Kennedy in June, Perry revealed some of her thoughts about becoming a first-time parent. “I’ve been overwhelmed. I’ve been anxious. I’ve been happy. I’ve been overjoyed. I’ve been depressed. I’ve been all of it,” she said. “The world is just a wild time, and it’s a wild time to bring life into the world. I mean, people were already having those kind of conversations years ago where it’s like, ‘Man, the world feels a little uncertain.’ And now, it really feels shaky boots.”

The singer recently opened up about her engagement to Bloom with Stellar Magazine, explaining that she’s “a bridechilla as opposed to a bridezilla.” The two got engaged on Valentine’s Day 2019.

“Orlando and I are united with our approach,” Perry explained. “It’s not about the party, it’s about the coming together of people who will hold us accountable when things get really hard. Those are just the facts when you’re with someone who challenges you to be your best self.”
