The Katy Perry x Legolas Baby Has Arrived

Is it just us or has this pandemic been an absolute celeb baby frenzy? Well there’s a new newborn to add to the list of kids who are simply not prepared for the fame and scrunity their lives are gonna hold!

Congratulations to Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom on the birth of their daughter, Daisy Dove Bloom. The singer and the elf shared the news via UNICEF, saying in a statement, “We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter.”

As well as the happy floating, the concious-couple are also very sweetly using the moment to highlight that not everyone has a smooth journey into parenthood. As Goodwill Ambassadors for UNICEF, the couple has established a donation page for mothers and newborns in precarious situations.

“We know we’re the lucky ones and not everyone can have a birthing experience as peaceful as ours was,” their message reads. “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.”

A bold and noble move to pivot your baby’s arrival to PR for a humanitarian organisation. We kinda…. love to see it?

Bloom also shared a sweet black and white picture of him and Perry holding their daughter’s tiny hand. Ngl, our hearts did soften a bit at this. Congrats again to this little family.
