Katy Perry and fiancé Orlando Bloom announced on Wednesday the birth of their baby girl, Daisy Dove Bloom.
The couple revealed the news in a statement to UNICEF.
“We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter,” they wrote in a statement to the international child-advocacy group.
“But we know we’re the lucky ones and not everyone can have a birthing experience as peaceful as ours was.”
The duo, who are both UNICEF goodwill ambassadors, used the announcement to help raise funds for the organization.
“In celebration of the heart we know our daughter already has, we have set up a donation page to celebrate DDB’s arrival,” they said.
Along with the announcement, the couple posted a black and white photo of their fingers interlocking with their newborn’s hand.
Perry, 35, and Bloom, 43, have been engaged since February 2019.

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.”? ?
