Katy Perry is a mom! The 35-year-old singer and fiancé Orlando Bloom welcomed their baby girl on Wednesday, naming her Daisy Dove Bloom.
The couple shared the exciting news in a statement with UNICEF, while also sharing the first photo of their baby girl. In “celebration of the heart we know our daughter already has,” Katy and Orlando established a UNICEF donation page on baby Daisy’s – or “DDB” as they called her – behalf. “We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter,” they said.
Daisy is the first child for Katy. The 43-year-old Pirates of the Caribbean actor shares nine-year-old son Flynn with ex-wife Miranda Kerr.
Meanwhile, Katy also released an animated music video for “Never Really Over” 14 months following the premiere of the original live-action visual.
The trippy new music video puts you in the shoes of an animated Perry in first person perspective. The animated video seems to be inspired by Groundhog Day. It unfolds from the point of view of a woman, presumably Katy, who wakes up every day at the same time, brushes her teeth in the same way and sits down to breakfast. What she’s eating changes, but when she gets up to do the dishes, she sees the same dirty dish on the counter – even though she remembers washing it the previous day…and the day before…and the day before…
“Just ‘cause this song came out in May 2019 doesn’t mean it’s ever really over,” Perry tweeted. “Here’s ‘NRO’ based on my ACTUAL experiences with dishes during quarantine.”
“Never Really Over” is the opening track from Perry’s upcoming sixth studio Smile, which drops Friday.
In other Katy news: she will receive the Gracies Impact Award from the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation (AWMF) at the 45th annual Gracie Awards program, which will air live (virtually) on AWMF’s Facebook page on September 10th.
The Gracies Impact Award is presented to an artist who has made a positive impact on society through her music.
