“💖🙏🏻🌈 I’m so happy for you guys,” Kerr, 37, commented on Perry’s birth announcement via Instagram on Thursday, August 27. “Can’t wait to meet her 💖🙏🏻🌈.”
The Australian model, who shares 9-year-old son, Flynn, with Bloom, also “liked” the Pirates of the Caribbean star’s Instagram post.
“We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter,” the statement read. “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.”
The new parents, who are both Goodwill Ambassadors, then announced the celebratory news via their individual Instagram pages, alongside a photo of their hands holding onto their daughter’s fingers.
The pair continued their announcement by pointing out how the coronavirus pandemic has negatively affected newborn care and safety and asked fans to donate to mothers and newborns in need if possible.⠀
“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,” the statement continued. “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.”
“Congratulations! 💜 Love to you, @orlandobloom and your new treasure. 💜,” Arianna Huffington commented on Perry’s Instagram page.
Kate Hudson posted a series of emojis on the birth post, writing, “ ✨❤️✨.”
Hillary Clinton also congratulated the couple and praised them for speaking out about maternal health. “Wishing you and your new family all the joy in the world. 🌼,” she wrote.
Ahead of their daughter’s arrival, the California native gave fans an inside look at Daisy’s expansive wardrobe during her “Smile Sunday” livestream on August 16.
Perry pulled out outfit after outfit, including a onesie with Bloom’s face all over it and Hello Kitty overalls. She also debuted the couple’s baby room for their first child, which is painted pink and has star-shaped lights on the wall next to a rocking chair.
