Guilty Pleasures: It’s a baby Bloom! Katy and Orlando ‘floating with love’ over Daisy

KATY PERRY and Orlando Bloom say they are still ‘floating’ following the birth of their first child.

The couple announced the arrival of daughter Daisy Dove Bloom through Unicef — they are both goodwill ambassadors for the children’s charity.

Posting a black-and-white picture of them holding Daisy’s hand, they said: ‘We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter.’

Then, pointing out the plight of children around the world, the couple added: ‘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 11 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 empathise with struggling parents now more than ever.’

Pirates Of The Caribbean star Bloom, 43, and Perry, 35, have set up a donation page to mark Daisy’s birth. They said: ‘By supporting Unicef, you are supporting a safe start to life and reimagining a healthier world for every child. We hope your heart can bloom with generosity.’

The couple have been dating since 2016. Bloom has a nine-year-old son, Flynn, with his ex-wife, Australian model Miranda Kerr.
