Unicef has unveiled the birth of Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom’s daughter, Daisy Dove Bloom.
The organization was the first to post a black and white image of the two holding the newborn’s tiny hand.
This image was later shared by Katy and Orlando on their official social media pages, however they labelled it as a “repost” or “regram” from Unicef.
In the caption, the couple said they were “floating with love and wonder” after their daughter’s “safe and healthy arrival”.
They went on to add however that they were among “the lucky ones” since not everyone can have “a birthing experience as peaceful as ours was.”
The two, who are UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors, say they have set up a donation page to celebrate their daughter’s arrival, with the money to support proper care for expecting mothers and their babies.

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.
