Floral dresses, filters, face masks and even a single named DAISIES: Katy Perry’s social media activity suggests she’d selected her daughter’s name MONTHS before giving birth
She welcomed first child Daisy Dove with fiancé Orlando Bloom on August 26th.
But Katy Perry’s personal and professional activity across social media suggests she selected her daughter’s distinctive name months before giving birth.
Fans of the American star have already associated the name with Katy following the release of her hit single Daisies in May.
The track, her first release from forthcoming album Smile, has since prompted a series of floral themed posts featuring images of the white petaled plant.

Promoting the song on Instagram at the time, she told followers: ‘I wrote this song a couple months ago as a call to remain true to the course you’ve set for yourself, regardless of what others may think.’
‘Recently, it has taken a new meaning for me, in light of what the whole world is experiencing. Each of us is one in more than seven billion, with our own story of strength and resilience to tell.
‘DAISIES is out now. I hope it will be the soundtrack to going for your dreams now… especially the ones we left behind.’

While the track focus’s on empowerment and striving to reach one’s goals, it also features the telling line ‘I guess you’re out of your mind ’til it actually happens’ – perhaps a reference to her first pregnancy.

On May 6th, nine days before the release of her single, Katy released daisy inspired sandals from he footwear collection.
All profits from sales of the seasonal sandals went to a charity for babies and children affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

The singer, 35, confirmed Daisy’s birth in a statement released jointly with Hollywood star Orlando, 43, to humanitarian children’s charity UNICEF on Wednesday evening.
‘We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter,’ they wrote.
The couple stated that although they are joyously celebrating the birth of their daughter, ‘[they] know [they are] the lucky ones and not everyone can have a birthing experience as peaceful as [theirs] 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.
‘Since COVID-19, many more newborn lives are at risk because of a greater lack of access to water, soap, vaccines and medicines that prevent diseases.
They added that ‘as parents to a newborn, this breaks [their] hearts, as [they] empathize with struggling parents now more than ever.’
‘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.
‘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 UNICEF, you are supporting a safe start to life and reimagining a healthier world for every child. We hope your ❤️ can bloom with generosity,’ concluded the couple.
