Last week, Katy and Orlando shared the happy news that they had welcomed their first child, a baby daughter, into the world. Regramming the announcement from UNICEF, where they are both charity ambassadors, the couple said they were "floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter."
Since then, as well as sharing a refreshing look at postpartum life, Katy also shared a glimpse at the bouquet of flowers she received from Beyonce Knowles to celebrate the birth. Wow.

"Congratulations on the new addition to your family! Beyonce" read the card, along with an impressive bunch of white flowers. "Ily @beyonce" Katy added to her 106million followers.
The singer also shared a little unicorn dressing gown and bottle of expensive Champagne and thanked Lionel Richie for the gift. Imagine having celebrity friends at a time like this.
Just days after welcoming Daisy, Katy also released her new album Smile. Quite a casual few days, then. Taking to Twitter to flex over the powerhouse move (quite rightly, too), Katy wrote, "Delivering a baby and a record in the same week, dont f**k with mama aka #whatmakesawoman 🤹🏼🤡 #smile," referencing the song What Makes a Woman from her new album, Smile.
Posted @withregram • @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.

Katy also gave a refreshing look at post-birth life on Instagram Stories, wearing some comfortable high-waisted underwear over her still-present bump (it doesn't just disappear like magic as soon as the baby is out, you know!) along with a breast pump bra. We couldn't be more here for her showing us the real side of new parenthood.
