Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have become parents after welcoming a newborn daughter.
The couple made the announcement with UNICEF, the organisation that they serve as Goodwill Ambassadors for, revealing the little one’s name as Daisy Dove Bloom.
In a statement, they wrote: “We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter. 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 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 empathize with struggling parents now more than ever.
“In celebration of the heart we know our daughter already has, we have set up a donation page to celebrate DDB’s arrival.”
