Pop-star Katy Perry gives birth to her first child – Video
The 35-year-old singer and her fiance Orlando Bloom have welcomed their first child together into the world, a baby girl called Daisy Dove Bloom, and the couple are “floating with love” following the “safe and healthy arrival” of their baby girl.
In a statement to Unicef – who they are Goodwill Ambassadors for – the couple said: “We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter.”
The engaged couple also admitted they are fortunate to have had a “peaceful” birthing experience, and used the announcement to encourage people to donate to Unicef to “celebrate Daisy’s arrival” and also to help mothers and newborns receive the care they need.
They 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 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.
“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 Unicef, you are supporting a safe start to life and reimagining a healthier world for every child. We hope your [heart emoji] can bloom with generosity.
“Gratefully, Katy and Orlando. (sic)”
Earlier this month, Katy admitted she wasn’t planning to take longer maternity leave after she gives birth.
