The 35-year-old ‘Teenage Dream’ singer and the British actor, 43, showed a photograph of their newborn to the world in a UNICEF Instagram post on Wednesday (August 27). The image showed the celebrity couple’s fingers clasped onto their daughter’s tiny hand in a post where they professed to be “floating with love”. The US hitmaker revealed they were expecting their first child in the music video ‘Never Worn White’, which was released in March, and showed the star cradling her baby bump. In previous years, Perry hinted at her hope to become a mother but admitted she “wasn’t ready” and in a Twitter post wrote about the importance of maintaining a successful career. 

Perry’s candid comments about parenthood were made during her older sister Angela Hudson’s pregnancy. 

She helped her sibling when she undertook the role of midwife several hours before she was due to head into the recording studio. 

The singer tweeted: “Helped deliver my sister’s baby at 2pm & am in the studio by 8pm. GET A GIRL THAT CAN DO BOTH!”

Her post from September 2016 was followed by baby and microphone emojis and was widely praised by fans.

It received more than 30,000 likes, a further 7,000 retweets and nearly 1,500 comments. 

A number of supporters left comments to congratulate Perry for the feat and one Twitter user dubbed her the “queen of birth”.

But others took a disliking to her post, including one who vented: “You can’t do both. Not without autotune. #youcantsing.”

A second tweeted: “Birth of [a] baby is not about you miss overrated w [sic] sub par voice.  A simple I’m a proud aunt would of [sic] been fine.”

A third joked that Perry was “there at conception too” meanwhile others fans dismissed the spiteful words and one person wrote: “CONGRATS TO ANG!!! YAY!!! You’re a great auntie!”

Interestingly, this wasn’t the first time the singer had served as a stand-in midwife.

In 2014, she joked that she could add “helps deliver babies in living rooms” to her CV after she assisted during the labour of her sister’s first child. 

Perry and Bloom shared news of Daisy’s “safe and healthy arrival” yesterday through the charity UNICEF in the hope of raising awareness of families less fortunate than them.

They wrote: “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 diseases.”

The post continued to explain that coronavirus had put more lives at risk because of a “greater lack of access to water, soap, vaccines and medicines”.

They added: “As parents to a newborn, this breaks our hearts, as we empathise with struggling parents now more than ever.”

The couple, who are UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors, set-up a fundraising page to celebrate “the heart we know our daughter already has” in support of the charity. 

In a final comment to encourage donations from the public, they used wordplay for a light sign-off from the post: “We hope your [heart emoji] can bloom with generosity.”
