Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have welcomed their first child, a beautiful baby girl named Daisy Dove Bloom.
The expected birth of Daisy was first announced through UNICEF’s social media account, rather than from either Katy’s or Orlando’s socials.
The couple commented through their joint UNICEF statement that they were “floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter”.

#Repost @unicef ・・・ 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.
Whilst the arrival of Daisy Dove Bloom went smoothly without any reported complications, the couple used this exciting announcement to bring awareness to global child mortality rates and the increased risk the COVID-19 pandemic is having on healthcare systems.
“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 empathise with struggling parents now more than ever”, the couple commented in the statement.
The couple have since set up a charity donation page on behalf of their daughter, and all proceeds raised will go towards expecting mothers and their newborns who are experiencing hardship.
Katy Perry announced her pregnancy in March with the release of her music video for her song ‘Never Worn White’ which showed her baby bump.
Globally, fans have started to connect the dots between Katy Perry’s song ‘Daisies’ and her newborn daughter’s name.
The song, which was released on May 15th 2020, is now being speculated to have been Katy Perry’s hint to revealing Daisy’s name.
The couple have been together since 2016, before taking a 10 month break and reconnecting in 2018.
On Valentine’s day last year, they had announced their engagement to each other but had to postpone their wedding due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
