Congratulations to the new parents!
Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom welcomed their first child together. They made the announcement Wednesday evening on Instagram, and you won’t believe the adorable name they gave the baby! They seem so excited to start on this new journey with their family.
Katy Perry is a momma!
The couple announced the birth of their daughter on the UNICEF Instagram page.
“Welcome to the world, Daisy Dove Bloom! We are honoured to introduce Goodwill Ambassadors @KatyPerry and @OrlandoBloom’s new bundle of joy,” the caption read.
The black and white photo pictured the hands of mom, dad, and baby. Perry’s thumbnail had a daisy painted onto it as well in honor of the baby’s name. The captioned continued with a quote from Bloom and Perry.
“We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter,” the couple told UNICEF. ““But we know we’re the lucky ones and not everyone can have a birthing experience as peaceful as ours was.”
They continued to explain that access to proper healthcare is a struggle for many around the world.
“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,” their statement read. “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.”
The caption continued:
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.⠀
Katy & Orlando.
Congrats to the happy parents!
