Singer Katy Perry and actor Orlando Bloom, who were engaged in February 2019, have welcomed their first child, a baby girl. Since both the personalities are UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors, the news was officially announced by it on Instagram, with a photo where the couple can be seen holding the baby’s tiny hand.
The message read a joint statement, which said that they are both happy and their heart is filled with love and wonder on the arrival of their safe and healthy daughter. They felt glad that theirs was a peaceful delivery experience, amidst the pandemic situation, making pregnancy and delivery a difficult task.
They also said that their heart goes out to the fact that every eleven seconds a pregnant lady or the baby dies due to a shortage of healthcare workers that too mostly from causes that could be prevented. The sad part is that the underlying cause of death is an increased lack of essentials like water, soap, medicine, and vaccines.
They announced that they have started a donation page related to the cause, and appealing people to provide support for a hassle-free and safe delivery experience for those who cannot otherwise afford one.
