“But we know that we are the lucky ones and that not everyone can have a birthing experience as peaceful as ours,” they shared. “Communities around the world continue to experience a shortage of caregivers and every eleven seconds a pregnant woman or newborn baby dies, mostly from preventable causes. Since COVID-19, many more newborn lives are at risk due to a greater lack of access to water, soap, vaccines and drugs that prevent disease. As parents of a newborn baby, it breaks our hearts as we empathize with struggling parents more than ever. ”
To “celebrate the heart we know our daughter already has,” Katy and Orlando created a UNICEF donation page in Baby Daisy’s name – or “DDB” as they called her – in the name.
The couple’s daughter came into the world on Wednesday, turning Perry into a mom for the first time and turning 9 years old Flynn, Bloom’s only child with his ex-wife Miranda Kerr, an older brother of his first sister.
The famous parents, who got engaged in February 2019 after an intermittent, multi-year love affair, broke the news of their baby in early March when the performer rocked her bump in the “Never Worn White” music video. The following month, she revealed that they had a baby girl on the way.
