Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have welcomed the birth of their first child, a daughter named Daisy Dove Bloom.
Perry and Bloom released a statement via UNICEF, United Nations agency responsible for providing humanitarian and developmental aid to children worldwide: “Welcome to the world, Daisy Dove Bloom! We are honoured to introduce Goodwill Ambassadors Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom’s new bundle of joy.”
The singer shared a black-and-white picture of her and Bloom holding Daisy’s tiny hand.

“We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter,” Katy and Orlando told us.⠀
“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.⠀
“As UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors, we know UNICEF is there, on the ground, doing whatever it takes to make sure every expecting mother has access to a trained health worker and access to quality healthcare. In celebration of the heart we know our daughter already has, we have set up a donation page to celebrate DDB’s arrival. 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.”
Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom announced the gender of their firstborn back in April with a pink shaving cream in an Instagram post.
