Fans of popstar Katy will also know she released a song called ‘Daisies’ in 2020 just months before welcoming the little one.

Making the name extra special, it also fits perfectly with Orlando’s last name, Bloom.

This comes after it was reported Katy might name her little one after her late grandmother.

In March, she revealed her nan Ann Pearl Hudson, passed away at the age of 99.

She wrote on Instagram: “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.”

An insider in the US then said: “It was Katy’s grandmother that made Katy the woman and the fighter that she is today.

“Katy believes that it is no coincidence that as her granny’s soul leaves the earth, another soul arrives.”

Meanwhile, Katy also hinted that she wanted more children, recently saying: "It's not like I'm not just going to have one, I think. I mean, I hope. I hope! Let's see what the universe has in store for me but I think this is going to be on my 'forever' list."
