Katy Perry Dropped Subtle Hints About Her Daughter’s Cute Name Months Before Giving Birth

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom just welcomed their first child together and gave the newborn the sweetest name ever: Daisy Dove Bloom. While this is the first time we’re hearing of the couple’s baby name pick, it turns out Perry teased her daughter’s precious moniker months ago, and we just never noticed.

Welcome to the world, Daisy Dove Bloom! We are honoured to introduce Goodwill Ambassadors @KatyPerry and @OrlandoBloom’s new bundle of joy.⠀ ⠀ “We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter,” Katy and Orlando told us.⠀ ⠀ “But 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 causes. Since COVID-19 many more newborn lives are at risk because of the increased lack of access to water, soap, vaccines and medicines that prevent diseases. As parents to a newborn, this breaks our hearts, as we 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 them, you are supporting a safe start to life and reimagining a healthier world for every child. We hope your ♥️ can bloom with generosity.⠀ ⠀ Gratefully-⠀ ⠀ Katy & Orlando.”⠀ ⠀ Please tap the link in our bio to support the most precious gift: a healthy child.

“We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter,” the statement read. “But 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 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. As parents to a newborn, this breaks our hearts, as we empathize with struggling parents now more than ever.”

The clues Katy Perry was set to pick a floral name were always there

Though Perry and Bloom’s newborn daughter’s name was just officially revealed, it turns out the singer teased the precious moniker months ago without anyone noticing.

The singer first dropped a hint she was going with a floral name for her daughter back in May when she released the lead single, ‘Daisies,’ from her current album, Smile.

At the time, Perry was also posting daisy-themed content to her Instagram, which everyone thought was just a reference to her new song.

Two months later, the “Teenage Dream” singer admitted to liking X Factor star Fleur East’s name — with Fleur meaning flower in French — while appearing on Hits Radio Breakfast.

“It’s actually really beautiful. Legit, it may go on the list. I’m going to text [Orlando] right now,” she said.

On top of that, Perry was recently asked if she’d consider naming her baby after either “Daisies” or “Harleys in Hawaii” — two songs from her new album. “I’ve never thought of Harley…ever! Wow! Harley is a great name! Harley Bloom,” she exclaimed. “Hold on…excuse me, I’m writing it down.”

Since Perry side-stepped “Daisies,” it seems that was a clear sign she was already set on the floral moniker, which ultimately went over our heads.

Perry reportedly considered naming her daughter after one special person

Before Perry began dropping hints about her daughter’s potential name, insiders claimed that she had picked out monikers that would honor the memory of her beloved grandmother.

Per the Naughty But Nice With Rob podcast, an insider reported that the singer planned “to name her [daughter] Pearl or Hudson or Ann,” after her late grandmother, Ann Pearl Hudson, who recently passed away.

I don’t know when a soul enters a new vehicle but if there is an afterlife where there’s a waiting room of the coming and going my mind wonders if the soul that is waiting to come into my world is getting a kiss on the forehead from my sweet Grandma that departed this earth yesterday. My heart hopes so. If she is able to speak with the soul in waiting the conversation would probably include “are you sure you wanna pick this wild group?!” There would most definitely be some sarcasm, a witty quip or two… tbh grandma probably had a glass of her favorite blush wine ready upon arrival to this afterlife… and a most fashionable look, jewels included, naturally. A lot of what I am is because of my father… and he is because of her. She started it all, as she used to remind us and I’m so grateful she did. Family… is there to show us what love can be… sometimes that journey of finding the love is tough to get to AND through but if you can open your heart and let the light lead the way you will find that incomparable love. Ann Pearl Hudson was a fighter. She survived the Great Depression, raised 3 kids on her own as a seamstress, making G strings for showgirls and other such characters in Vegas. She was always authentically herself, funny and full of all the sweet cozy things you think of when you think of grandmas. She gave me crisp dollar bills in hallmark cards, she let us eat her favorite almond cookies from the 99 cent store while we asked questions about the different fans she had displayed on her walls. She was a wonderful grandma and I will forever carry some of her in me. When my whit comes out, that’s Ann. When my authenticity comes out, that’s Ann. When my stubbornness comes out, hell, that’s Ann. When my fighter spirit comes out, that’s Ann. When my style comes out, that’s Ann. May she rest in deep peace and kiss the forehead of the soul to come and let them know everything is gonna be OK, especially now that they have gained an angel to look over them ♥️♠️

“It was Katy’s grandmother that made Katy the woman and the fighter that she is today,” said the source, “Katy believes that it is no coincidence that as her granny’s soul leaves the earth, another soul arrives.”

Even though Perry and Bloom ended up going in a different direction with their baby’s name, it’s likely the little girl’s adorable moniker still honors the singer’s grandmother’s memory in a meaningful way.
