[News]Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom's first baby is born!

Pop singer Katy Perry had mentioned her pregnancy last March in the Never Worn White video clip. She and actor Orlando Bloom have just announced the news: their first child, little Daisy Dove Bloom, was born on August 27th!

Rather unusually, but to their credit, the couple announced the happy event via Unicef's Instagram, while recalling that they were "lucky" and that they were aware that "not everyone could experience a birth as peaceful as their own", due to the inequalities in access to care around the world.

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.

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have in fact been Unicef "goodwill ambassadors" for several years. To celebrate the birth of their daughter, they wanted to launch a donation campaign to help mothers and infants in disadvantaged countries.

And since good news never comes alone, the singer's new album, Smile, will be released tomorrow... You can listen to the title track below:
