Katy Perry welcomes her first child with Orlando Bloom, a girl

Katy Perry gave birth to her baby girl with her loving fiancé Orlando Bloom.

The couple have said they are "floating with love and wonder" following the birth of their first child together, with them revealing they have named her Daisy Dove Bloom.

Katy, 35 and actor Orlando, 43, took the unusual step of announcing the birth through Unicef, with the pair being goodwill ambassadors for the charity.

"We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter," the couple said in statement, alongside a black and white picture of them holding Daisy's tiny hand.

Their statement continued: "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 empathise with struggling parents now more than ever."

The couple said they have set up a donation page to mark Daisy's birth, with the money going towards new mothers and their children.

The couple added: "By supporting Unicef, you are supporting a safe start to life and reimagining a healthier world for every child. We hope your (heart) can bloom with generosity."

Orlando is already a dad to his nine-year-old son Flynn with ex-wife Miranda Kerr.

But their newborn is his first ever "daddy's little girl" and first child with Katy.
