“Katy won the battle over baby’s name,” a source exclusively told Us Weekly on Thursday, August 27. “She was pulling for the moniker Daisy, but Orlando liked Fiona.”
The actor, 43, thought that Fiona “sounded good alongside” his and Miranda Kerr’s 9-year-old son Flynn’s name.
Another insider told Us earlier this month that Bloom and the pregnant Grammy nominee, 35, had “yet to agree” on their little one’s moniker.
“She likes the name Daisy because daisies are her favorite flowers, simple, pure and sunny,” the source explained at the time. “She is also fond of the name Grace Ann. Ann after her grandmother, whose name was Ann Pearl.”
While the actor was “also OK with honoring Katy’s late Grandma, he like[d] her middle name, Pearl,” the insider concluded.
The “I Kissed a Girl” singer announced in March that she was pregnant with her and the Lord of the Rings star’s first child together. The California native debuted her baby bump in her “Never Worn White” music video at the time.
The couple announced their daughter Daisy Dove Bloom’s arrival on Wednesday, August 26, with UNICEF’s help.
“We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter,” the Goodwill Ambassadors wrote in a statement. “In celebration of the heart we know our daughter already has, we have set up a [UNICEF] 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 heart can bloom with generosity.”
In the black-and-white family photo, the American Music Award and her fiancé held their infant’s hand. Perry’s thumbnail was painted with a daisy.
Kerr, 37, commented on the social media upload: “I’m so happy for you guys. Can’t wait to meet her.”
The Victoria’s Secret model, who has been coparenting Flynn with Bloom since 2013, also shares sons Hart, 2, and Myles, 10 months, with her husband, Evan Spiegel.
