Katy Perry Names Daughter After a Flower

 

Hooray – Singer and “American Idol” judge  Katy Perry just gave birth to a little girl.

And guess what she and actor Orlando Bloom named their little bundle of joy?

Daisy Dove Bloom.

Of course, they did. When your last name is “Bloom,” it does seem destined to have a flower name.

Turns out that in her newest album, “Smile,” there is a song “Daisies” as well. So did the song inspire the baby’s name or vice versa? Everything seems to be coming up daisies. She may have dropped other hints as well about her daughter’s name when she wore a “Daisies” face mask in an Instagram post.

In fact, in May she was selling a daisy face mask imprinted with the title “Daisies” to benefit the Santa-Barbara-based aid organization DirectRelief.

Other popular floral names trending are Violet, Lily and Rose. But we kind of like Daisy don’t you?

The couple announced their daughter’s arrival with an adorable picture via UNICEF – since Perry and Bloom are Goodwill Ambassadors for the charity.

Did you notice how she painted a little daisy on her fingernail? Cute detail.

As far as the deets on the birth, this is what the couple shared.

“We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter.”

“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.”

Back in April, Katy announced it was a girl when she shared a picture of fiance Orlando Bloom covered in pink frosting.

Bloom already has a 9 1/2-year-old boy named Flynn from his marriage to Miranda Kerr who is married to Snap CEO Evan Spiegel.

As you may recall, Perry and Bloom got engaged on Valentine’s Day. And natch Mr. Bloom gave her a floral-inspired ruby ring.  No wedding date announced but they are definitely Mommy and Daddy.

In the language of flowers, daisies symbolize innocence, purity and a youthful spirit.  The legend goes that Freya, a goddess of love, beauty and fertility, loved daisies so this flower became attached to motherhood and childbirth as well as new beginnings.

And Daisy Dove Bloom is certainly a new beginning for Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom.
