Katy Perry Gives Birth to Daughter—and We Already Have a Pic & a Name

Congratulations are in order for Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom!

The “Firework” singer and Pirates of the Caribbean actor shared the news via UNICEF's Instagram account that they had welcomed their first child together, a baby girl. Perry, 35, and Bloom, 43, each later reshared the same post on their own accounts.

In addition to the exciting news, the couple also revealed a first photo of their daughter, as well as her name: Daisy Dove Bloom.

The accompanying photo caption initially shared by UNICEF read, “Welcome to the world, Daisy Dove Bloom! We are honoured to introduce Goodwill Ambassadors @KatyPerry and @OrlandoBloom’s new bundle of joy.” Yes, the couple used their birth announcement to divulge that they are teaming with UNICEF to bring awareness to a very important issue.

The caption continued, “'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.'”

The post concluded, “Please tap the link in our bio to support the most precious gift: a healthy child.”

The famous duo previously revealed that their unborn daughter already had a nickname during a recent virtual appearance with Hits Radio. Perry said, “I call her Kicky Perry sometimes. I love a pun.”

The American Idol judge initially announced she was pregnant back in March in a new music video for her song “Worn Over White,” even sharing a few clips on Instagram.

The “Never Really Over” singer got engaged to Bloom on Valentine’s Day last year after dating on and off for two years. This is their first child together (with Bloom already a father to 9-year-old Flynn).

We can't wait to watch Perry sing “Baby, you're a firework” to, well, her baby. Congrats!
