Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have welcomed their first child together - a daughter named Daisy Dove Bloom.
They announced the news by sharing a sweet black and white picture of them both holding her hand.
Welcome to the world, Daisy Dove Bloom! We are honoured to introduce Goodwill Ambassadors @KatyPerry and Orlando Bloom's new bundle of joy.— UNICEF (@UNICEF) August 27, 2020
“We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter."
“We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter,” they said via a statement from Unicef, for which both Perry and Bloom are ambassadors.
“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 11 seconds a pregnant woman or newborn dies, mostly from preventable causes.
"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."
In order to help new mothers and their children, the couple set up a donation page to mark Daisy's birth.
Perry announced her pregnancy in the video for her single Never Worn White, revealing a baby bump in last scenes of the clip.
The couple met at the 2016 Golden Globes after Bloom stole a burger from Perry's table and started dating shortly after. Despite splitting in 2017, they rekindled their romance the following year and finally got engaged in February 2019.
