The moment we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived!
Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have officially welcomed their daughter into the world. And we are completely obsessed with her name – Daisy Dove Bloom!
Huge congratulations to the couple!
“The most precious gift: A healthy child,” they wrote on Instagram in a joint statement with UNICEF, alongside their first picture as a family of three.
The baby announcement not only told the world about the birth of their daughter but also tried to raise awareness for UNICEF’s work around the world, as not everyone is as fortunate as they are…
“We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter. 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 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 empathize with struggling parents now more than ever.”
The UNICEF ambassadors ended their announcement by calling for donations to the charity to celebrate Daisy Dove’s safe arrival, to ensure as many babies as possible can get the safe and healthy start they deserve…
“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 UNICEF, you are supporting a safe start to life and reimagining a healthier world for every child. We hope your ❤ can bloom with generosity.”
Daisy Dove is Katy’s first child and Orlando’s second. He shares a nine-year-old son with his ex-wife, Miranda Kerr.
Congratulations again to the proud new parents!
