Counting down the days! Orlando Bloom is anxious to welcome his and pregnant Katy Perry’s daughter.
‘I’m so excited to have a little Daddy’s girl,” the actor, 42, gushed to Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday, August 11. “I hope she’s gonna love me as much as I love her. But that daddy-girl thing and that love of your life feeling is, I think, right around there.”
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon host, 45, who shares daughters Winnie, 7, and Frances, 5, with wife Nancy Juvonen, told Bloom that “the feeling is what everyone tells you.” The Saturday Night Live alum went on to say that raising girls is the “best thing in the world.”
The Carnival Row star is already the father of his and Miranda Kerr‘s 9-year-old son, Flynn. The little one became a big brother in 2018 when the model, 37, gave birth to her and Evan Spiegel’s son Hart, 2. The couple welcomed Myles, now 9 months, the following year.
“He’s got a couple of other brothers, but this is his first sister, so he’s excited,” Bloom told Fallon on Tuesday.
Perry, 35, announced in March that she and the English star are expecting their first child together. The Grammy nominee debuted her baby bump in her “Never Worn White” music video at the time.
“Omg so glad I don’t have to suck it in anymore,” the “Teenage Dream” singer tweeted. “Or carry around a big purse lol.”
The following month, the engaged pair revealed the sex of their baby-to-be with pink frosting. “It’s a girl,” Perry captioned an Instagram photo of Bloom covered in the sweet spread.
“He is really excited for a little girl,” the American Music Award winner said during a Mix 104.1’s Karson & Kennedy interview in June. “They say that little girls are daddy’s little girl. That’s how it’s going to be. We’ll see.”
The pregnant star added at the time: “We have yet to decide specifically on her name because we’ve got options and she’ll tell us. I’ll look at her and go, ‘Oh, yeah, yeah, you are her, you are that.’”
