Daisy’s father is actor Orlando Bloom (Will Turner in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean series, Legolas in the Lord of the Rings movies).

#Repost @unicef ??? 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.

The BBC reported that the happy “couple said they had set up a donation page to mark Daisy’s birth, with the money going towards new mothers and their children.” Both Ms. Perry and Mr. Bloom are Goodwill Ambassadors for UNICEF.

Daisy Dove is Perry’s firstborn child and Bloom’s first daughter. He has a nine-year-old son, Flynn Christopher Bloom, with his ex-wife, Australian model Miranda Kerr.

Perry and Bloom are both UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors, and ask that those so inclined to offer baby gifts to the new family instead consider donating to UNICEF in their name.

Editor’s Note – If they give her a Lord of the Rings LEGO set, and it contains a certain elf, it could be Legolas’ LEGO Lass LEGO Legolas.
