Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom announced the arrival of their baby daughter on Thursday, with the proud parents posting the first photo of their little girl, Daisy Dove Bloom, on Instagram.

Among those to react to the happy news were Orlando's ex-wife Miranda Kerr, who was one of the first to like his post. The Australian model shares nine-year-old son Flynn with the Pirates of the Caribbean star, and the little boy will no doubt be just as excited to meet his sister.

#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.

A post shared by Orlando Bloom (@orlandobloom) on

Orlando Bloom shared the first photo of his and Katy Perry's baby daughter Daisy 

"Flynn couldn't be more excited to be getting a little sister – he's already got two brothers from Miranda so although the circumstances are definitely unusual, this is a wonderful time for us," he said.

Katy and Orlando announced their daughter's arrival via UNICEF – the couple are Goodwill Ambassadors for the charity – by sharing a black-and-white image showing their newborn grasping her father's finger while Katy held onto Daisy's wrist.

Daisy has a very special meaning behind her moniker, as it is the name of one of the songs on Katy's latest album, Smile.

Katy had previously been asked whether she had considered naming her baby after one of her songs, which also include Harley's in Hawaii. The star had told ET Canada: "I've never thought of Harley… ever! Wow! Harley is a great name! Harley Bloom. Hold on… excuse me I'm writing it down."

Katy had also hinted about a floral-themed name during an earlier interview with Hits Radio Breakfast host Fleur East back in July. The Smile hitmaker was inspired by Fleur's moniker, telling her: "It's actually really beautiful. Legit, it may go on the list. I'm going to text him (Orlando) right now."

Little Daisy has a beautiful nursery waiting for her too, which Katy recently shared a glimpse of during a live chat with her fans on Instagram.

The spacious pink-themed room has everything from a separate changing zone and seating area for Katy. Daisy even has a personalised baby grow with Orlando's face printed on it ready for her to wear.
