BLOOM CANNOT WAIT TO HAVE A "DADDY'S LITTLE GIRL"
Bloom and host Jimmy Fallon both lit up when they got into the topic of Bloom's future daughter. Fallon, who has two girls of his own, Winnie, seven, and Franny, five, boasted about his kids.
Meanwhile, Bloom spoke as if his girl were already here. "I'm so excited to have a little daddy's girl," he said. Fallon told him about how he had immediately loved both his girls when they were born. Bloom added:
"I hope she's going to love me as much as I love her. But that daddy's girl thing, that love of your life feeling, I think is right around there."
HIS SON IS EXCITED ABOUT HAVING HIS FIRST SISTER
A giddy Fallon noted that it is the cutest thing to see his girls grow up and enter new stages in their lives as they get bigger. He shares his girls with his wife, Nancy Juvonen.
Flynn already has two brothers through his mother, Kerr's marriage to Evan Spiegal. Flynn has been sharing his time between his parents since they split in 2013.
BLOOM WILL BE HELPING WITH FEEDING
He looks forward to bottle-feeding his daughter and those moments in the night when the world is quiet, and it is just him and his sleeping baby. Bloom and Perry were hoping to get married this year.
However, the coronavirus pandemic forced them to postpone their plans. The couple is still on the up and up after a slight downturn in their past when they split in 2017.
PERRY EXPLAINS GROWTH THROUGH BREAKUP
Perry recently opened up about their time apart, saying they had to grow as individuals before they could work together. They also learned from the challenges they experienced as a unit.
The "Firework" singer expressed hope that the wedding will happen next year when the world is not in crisis mode. Since canceling her nuptials, she has adopted more of a go with the flow attitude, and it appears to be working.
