Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom welcome daughter Daisy Dove Bloom

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have welcomed their daughter, Daisy Dove Bloom. After what felt like one of the longest pregnancies to date, Daisy arrived Wednesday. Unicef posted the photo above to Instagram with the following caption:

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.”⠀

As the message states, both Orlando and Katy are goodwill ambassadors. Each of the proud parents reposted Unicef’s IG and added links (https://uni.cf/32pcmbe) in their bio to donate to Unicef’s For Every Child Fund that provides assistance globally to promote healthy maternity and protect child welfare. Using their baby announcement as an opportunity to help other babies around the world is a pretty lovely way to kick off parenthood, in my opinion.

The black and white photo is beautiful, with both parents holding little Daisy’s hand. We even get a baby ear in the shot. And I love the simplicity of the daisy nail art on Katy’s thumb. The whole thing feels so intimate and personal. Katy went past her due date, which is pretty common for a first baby. She just spoke to ET’s Rachel Smith about feeling like she’d been pregnant “forever.”

As for the name, I like it. I adore the name Daisy, it’s one of those names that makes me happy just hearing it. Daisy Bloom is a little more on the nose than I would go but if I had to guess,they seem like a couple that probably sought out flower names to go with Bloom from the start. As for Dove, we knew Katy was going to insert some form of whimsy into her kids’ names, and Dove is pretty tame in that regard. Given the current state of the world and given their connection to Unicef, naming a child after the symbol for hope is kind of beautiful and incredibly optimistic, which I think we could all use right now. As a whole, the name seems quite suited for both Katy and Orlando. I know they waited a long time for Daisy to arrive and they did so during some sad times and unfortunate circumstances so let’s just celebrate this AM that the baby is here, healthy and welcomed into a loving home.

Katy’s new single, Smile, drops tomorrow, which kind of makes Daisy’s birth the greatest promotional flex ever. Congratulations to the happy family. I cannot wait to see this kid’s outfits!

    Daisy……………..Bloom? good luck w that. This pregnancy seems like it went for 3 years. I am so tired of it but…..LOVE KATY’S DAISY NAIL ART!! I just imagine her asking the nail tech for a daisy, and it not meaning anything to anyone. Til now :)

    • Flamingo says:

      The name is very on brand for her. I’m about to bitchy, but whenever I hear someone naming their kid something overly cutesy I wonder if they realize how much of a hinderance it can be later in life. This is especially true outside of show business. I worked with a brilliant attorney early in my career who changed her name from Stormy, which was apparently popular in the 70’s, to something more conventional because no one would take her seriously. There are of course exceptions to this rule, but in the real world you just don’t see many CEOs or judges or neurosurgeons named Rainbow.

      • Bibi says:

        Daisy Bloom is cute and hollywood, she will fit right in. I mean some are called Apple, so Daisy will be extra fine. I wasnt sure about Katy and Orlando but I find the announcement of the baby makes them work. Congrats to the parents and i love the daisy nail.

      • tig says:

        Back in the 70s, my mom went into the parking lot to find her car stolen. The famale officer who answered the call and drove her home had the first name of “Guitar”. We NEVER forgot her.

      • B says:

        I always thought our self-storage manager’s name was Heather, but her name is “Feather.” (She told me to think “birds of a feather,” lol).

      • Sunnee says:

        I’m loving the statement by UNICEF bringing awareness to maternal morbidity. I see no problem with the name. It certainly isn’t Pilot Inspektor or Moon Unit. My first boyfriend’s name was Dov. Hebrew for bear. Flower names have been popular names for girls for centuries. Daisy, Violet, Rose, Lily, Dahlia etc. Coupled with the last name Bloom it’s such a wonderful choice. I’m old now and my name and my name is v considered “hippy”, even though my parents were anything but.
        My husband was so in love with it that all our kids have nature names and alliterative as well. My older co-worker warned me against the naming them this way, saying they’d hate it. My kids LOVE their names. The oldest is 26, the youngest 18. They have had zero problems. BTW, the world is changing. My kids went to school with classmates: Wisdom, Dream, Rainbow and Luna, and more. To be honest a little girl named Mary got teased for her name.

      • Laura says:

        Agree. I loathe cutesy names. Why not give a child a serious name and save the cuteness for a nickname? For the record, I also can’t stand creative spelling.

      • Tanya says:

        If little Daisy puts in the work to be a neurosurgeon or judge, then her credentials will speak for themselves.

      • liz says:

        LOL. Just remember what girls were being named in the late 60s & early 70s (at least the ones who weren’t named Jennifer). I went to school with girls named Magic, Rainbow, Blossom, Starshine . . . . Half of their parents had been at Woodstock.

        Daisy is a lovely name, but I don’t know that I’d have paired it with the last name of Bloom.

      • windyriver says:

        Female names I found in my sister-in-law’s tree, circa 1700′s/early 1800′s US/New England – Thankful, Deliverance, Experience, Prudence, and of course, Liberty. Also, Desire, and Silence (?). A similar idea of creative personal choice! Makes you wonder what others thought about those names at a time when Hannah, Sarah, Mary, etc. were so prevalent in that area.

        Prudence is the only one that’s made it into more common present usage, although a few years ago my dad had a hospital nurse named Experience.

        I always liked Moon Unit, maybe because it went so well with Zappa, and Frank’s persona…

    • AnnaKist says:

      I don’t know why, but I’m not a bit surprised by the floral first name. Daisy is a pretty name , and suits a baby, little girl, teenager, adult lady and senior.
      A couple of weeks ago, I was sitting opposite my bestie’s daughter. She asked me why I was staring at her, and did she gage crumbs on her face – it was a High Tea, after all. No, I just couldn’t for the like of me think who she looked like. Now I see. She and KP could be sisters. It’s the bone structure, the complexion, the lips, eyes… and to top it off, the hair. My friend’s cut off her almost-wasn’t lemgrh hair about 2.5 years ago, sad also went from very dark to blonde. Talk about doppelgänger.
      Eh, these two are harmless,so congrats.

    • lucy2 says:

      Oh geez I didn’t catch that, I was thinking Daisy was a nice and fairly normal name, LOL.

      I find Katy very obnoxious, but even I will give them credit for using the birth announcement for a charity. Well done. Hope everyone is healthy and happy.

    • minx says:

      Daisy is a cute name, congrats to them. Agree that it felt like she was pregnant for years!

  2. Laalaa says:

    I believe the single Smile is already out? Maybe the video or the album?

    Beautiful name, congrats! And I believe it was predicted here in the comments a few weeks ago

  3. Gil says:

    All the names are pretty but together it sounds like this kid was born in Florida 😂

  4. JanetDR says:

    Sweet! I want it to be Daisy Love Bloom, because that flows better for me. Welcome to the world Daisy!

  5. Shutterbug says:

    I love the name! Very pretty. Daisy Dove has a nice ring to it :)

  6. Who ARE These People? says:

    The way they chose to announce their happy news is a bit of balm right now…hearts in the right place. Wish them well.

  7. 10KTurtle says:

    Sounds like a name from a children’s book, and not in a bad way! Congratulations Katy & Orlando & big brother Flynn!

  8. Doodle says:

    This is how celebrities should announce their babies. What a great way to bring attention to a worthy cause while also showing off a really sweet name. I’m no fan but I’m impressed. The first few weeks can be rough so I’ll wish them luck and happiness. It’s a really beautiful photo.

  9. Case says:

    I think many of us called the name Daisy! I love it, so cute. It’s very on brand for Katy, but still relatively normal.

  10. TheOriginalMia says:

    I like the name. Very fitting. It did seem like she was pregnant forever. Glad both mom & daughter are doing well. Congrats, Katy, Orlando and Flynn.

  11. CJ says:

    It’s a cute name – and I’m always reminded of two of my friends who got married, with the respective surnames Rose and Bloom….

    yes they are now the Rose-Blooms, although thankfully they haven’t named their first born after a flower as that would feel a bit like overkill!

  12. Gippy says:

    I love the name! It’s cutesy but not annoyingly so. The baby will be rich she’ll be fine, and if it bothers her she can make up a nickname or legally change her name. Love the announcement, the world is a dark place I’ll take some flowery sunshine wherever I can get it :)

  13. TyrantDestroyed says:

    Is not a name I would use but it’s very Hollywood and it fits with her family. I think it also pairs well with big brother Flynn. Congrats to both and I cannot wait to see the baby, I’m sure she’s very cute.

  14. Miss D says:

    My name is Daisy and I hated it when I was younger, but it has actually been helpful in my career as it sets me apart and makes me memorable.

  15. FHMom says:

    I love the photo. Congrats on the healthy baby. I once had a temporary coworker named Pebbles. It was so difficult to say her name with a straight face. Even my boss had issues. I think we were all relieved when she left.

  16. CROOKSNNANNIES says:

    Katy Perry released the song Daisies awhile ago so… to me that seems like her baby’s name is kind of promotional. It could be the other way around and the song is an ode to her, but I feel like it’s kind of calculating to drum up attention for her song, which is gross.

  17. ChellyPie says:

    My cousins name is Daisy & she’s a B so I don’t think of happy when I hear it. BUT, this may be the Daisy to change that!! Welcome to this chaotic world, baby girl

  18. Plaidsheets says:

    I think the name is adorable. Paired with the last time, it could be a bit much. However, it’s light and fun without being too whimsical.

  19. one of the Marys says:

    no one has mentioned this in this post but the very first thing I thought of was how she is not getting dragged for this photo like Meghan and Harry were dragged for their photo showing only Archie’s hand or however that shot was composed. I guess there’s been so much exposure the last few weeks it’s on my mind.
    Congrats to them and well done with the announcement, way to do it

  20. Jules says:

    I hope she’s not still wearing that horrific sad clown outfit in that dreadful nursery.

  21. ChillyWilly says:

    “Using their baby announcement as an opportunity to help other babies around the world is a pretty lovely way to kick off parenthood, in my opinion”
    Totally agree. It’s a really nice thing to do! And God help me, but I love the name Daisy Bloom! It’s really cute.

  22. Anne Call says:

    Their house in Montecito is close to Harry and Meghan-maybe play dates in the future?

  23. Sequinedheart says:

    I remember commenting about this when she dropped the song ‘DAISY’ that it was a hint of the name to be.
    Because BLOOM. This kid was never going to be Jessica Bloom. But I do like it. Daisy Bloom is fine. It’s Hollywood enough without being bloody awful.
    Good for them. A new baby is a wonderful, exciting life event. ❤️

  24. ChloeCat says:

    I love the name Daisy, it was the name of my late kitty. I named her after Daisy Buchanan from “The Great Gatsby.” Having said that, I can’t stand Katy. She’s obnoxious, exhausting & cruel. I remember how awful she was on “American Idol.” She was horrible to contestants & complained about how all of them had sob stories. I hope karma is a bitch when you treat people so poorly.

  25. Bookie says:

    She’s always really annoyed me. But I can’t hate on the name and certainly can’t find any fault with the UNICEF announcement.

    Katy gets a pass from me and has my moved off my long list of celebs who annoy me. Good job and congratulations!

    • MaryContrary says:

      She kind of bugged me too-but I saw her in concert a few years ago at a music festival, and she was actually great.

  26. Florence says:

    Isn’t Daisy Bloom a Marc Jacobs perfume?

  27. Stacy Dresden says:

    Charity promotion in the baby announcement is a HUGE win!

  28. Lizzie says:

    I like the name. It seems kind of old fashioned and not at all cutesy. Old lady’s were named Rose, Iris and Daisy and I am glad to see they are making a come back.

    There is an actress named Poppy and her sisters all have flower names too. Very sweet.

  29. Yonati says:

    I taught at a school where one of my angels had two friends named Reality and Messiah. What’s funny about this is that one day, this angel was kicked out of his class for “FIGHTING WITH REALITY” All I could think was, “I feel you.” And then the angel said, “Yeah, Reality kicked my ass, so I kicked him back.” And I thought, “You keep that in mind – you can kick Reality’s ass!”

  30. Aerohead21 says:

    Smart…using Unicef as a birth announcement while also promoting Unicef and the needs of people…interesting approach 🤔

  31. DemoCat says:

    Missed my birthday by one day! (Happy Birthday to me). I kind of like the name. I wouldn’t expect them to name her Beulah Wilma.

  32. Bee says:

    I think it’s cute. But then again, my own first name is Berry. 🍓 🤷🏼‍♀️

  33. Ellie says:

    Interesting they didn’t incoprorate Perry in the name… as Orlando’s son has Kerr in his last name. I think Daisy Bloom is a cute name though. A lot more normal than I’d expected.
