Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom Have Welcomed a Baby Girl
August 27, 2020
Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have welcomed their first child together, a baby girl named Daisy Dove Bloom!
The couple announced their daughter’s birth through UNICEF, a charity both are Goodwill Ambassadors for, on social media with a black and white image of both Perry, 35, and Bloom, 43, holding their newborn’s hand.
“We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter,” the caption reads. “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.”
The couple then asked followers to consider donating to the charity, continuing, “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 [heart] can bloom with generosity…Please tap the link in our bio to support the most precious gift: a healthy child.”
Perry first announced her pregnancy in March through her music video for “Never Worn White.”
Congrats to the family of three!
