Welcome to the world, Daisy Dove Bloom! We are honoured to introduce Goodwill Ambassadors @KatyPerry and @OrlandoBloom’s new bundle of joy.⠀ ⠀ “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.⠀ ⠀ Gratefully-⠀ ⠀ Katy & Orlando.”⠀ ⠀ Please tap the link in our bio to support the most precious gift: a healthy child.

For the unversed, this is the first child for Perry and the second for Bloom, who shares a 9-year-old son, Flynn, with his ex-wife, Miranda Kerr.

In March, Katy Perry shared a video of her music video for her song Never Worn White’ announcing that she was pregnant.

“Well, it wasn’t on accident,” she later said of getting pregnant during an interview with SiriusXM’s Mikey Piff.

“I’m so grateful for everything that I have been able to do and achieve and all the goals that I’ve been kind of able to check off my list and dreams and the life I’ve lived thus far, and I think I’ve just been trying to create this space in my own life where I’m not running myself too ragged and like, you know, creating space for something new to happen like this. And I think we were both looking forward to this new interval of life and sharing this, so, that’s kind of how it happens, you know?”

Ever since she revealed the big news, she’s been giving pregnancy updates to her fans, including joking about her and Bloom’s changing bodies.

“It’s not been too bad. I’ve just been a little lethargic,” Perry said of her pregnancy in a Facebook video in May. “I’ve definitely been leaning into gaining the weight. I’m happy to do that.”

“I’m looking like Shrek a little bit and Orlando’s looking like the Hulk,” she cracked. “Orlando’s getting fit and I’m getting square. But, you know, it’s all worth it. I’m leaning into the COVID 30.”

Perry and Bloom have been engaged since February 2019, and a source told ET in March that they postponed their planned wedding in Japan this year due to the outbreak of Coronavirus.
