Hollywood power couple Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry have welcomed their first child together, a beautiful baby girl!
The couple shared the news with the world on Thursday through UNICEF - an organisation both stars are ambassadors for, alongside a message encouraging their fans to donate in celebration of their daughter's arrival.
Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have welcomed their first child together.
The pair have also revealed their daughter's unique name - Daisy Dove Bloom.
The popstar first revealed her pregnancy news in a very unique fashion: dropping the music video for her new hit, Never Worn White.
Katy, who cradles her stomach in the clip that immediately went viral, then confirmed the news on Twitter, saying: "omg so glad I don't have to suck it in anymore."

Just one month later, the star then shared the bub-to-be's gender.
"It's a girl," Katy simply captioned the post of Orlando, covered in what looks to be pink frosting.

The couple reportedly began dating in 2016, with rumours of flirtations flying between the pair at a Golden Globes after party.
But it wasn't until a few months later that they became "official", with Katy sharing a photo of herself and Orlando in Cannes.
If that wasn't enough to confirm the news, a photo went viral of the couple paddleboarding, with a very naked Orlando steering the board.
The photo didn't leave much to the imagination and made news coverage worldwide.
"It was extremely surprising," he told ELLE UK about the incident.
"I wouldn't have put myself in that position if I'd thought it would happen. I've been photographed a million times in a million ways. I have a good radar."

Katy and Orlando split in March 2017, with their reps telling US Weekly: "Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time."
The stars spent a year apart before reuniting in February 2018.
Happier than ever, Orlando popped the question to the I Kissed A Girl singer in February 2019, with a stunning flower-shaped ring.

Katy shared the announcement on Instagram in a sweet snap with her new fiancé and ring, simply captioning the post: "full bloom."
This is Katy's first child and Orlando's second.
He was previously married to Australian model Miranda Kerr, with whom he shares a son, Flynn.
