“We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter,” the couple said in a statement.
The pair have joined forces with UNICEF during the pregnancy and birth to highlight the plight of mothers around the world who are not as fortunate as them.
“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. … As parents to a newborn, this breaks our hearts,” Perry said in a statement.
In a recent interview, Perry said that she wishes only the best for her children in the future, and that they are free to do whatever they like.
“A hope I have for my future child is that she doesn't have any limits on any of her dreams, or what she wants to be, or who she thinks she is. She can change whenever she wants. … She can try everything on if she wants, figure out what fits. And so I think that song (What Makes a Woman) is important to me and important for her,” Perry told radio host Mona Biemann.
As for what type of parent she will be, the singer said: “I'm definitely parenting style 3Fs: I'm fun, firm but fair. Yes, I like to get things done and I like to, you know, create a peaceful scene and it takes a matriarchy to do that.”
