The soon to arrive baby girl will be the first child for Perry and second child for Bloom. The actor is the father to his 9-year-old son, Flynn from his previous marriage to model, Miranda Kerr. Bloom said Flynn is eager to meet his new younger sibling. “He‘s got a couple of other brothers, but this is his first sister, so, he’s excited, too. So, it’s an exciting time,” The Pirates of the Caribbean actor told Fallon.

Aside from happily talking about his baby’s arrival, Bloom also praised Perry for how well she’s been handling the pregnancy. “I couldn’t be more impressed with her. You wouldn’t know that she’s pregnant, other than this giant belly she has in front of her,” he told the Today Show Wednesday morning. Bloom also said despite Perry being nine months pregnant now, she hasn’t let anything slow her down. “She‘s a force of nature,” the actor said.

Bloom joked that early morning TV interviews are helping him prepare for a newborn. “Waking up at 4:30 this morning to come and speak to you is a start because of course there’s going to be a lot more of that happening,” he said in the Today Show interview.

Bloom and Perry have had a whirlwind romance the past four years, according to Elle. The couple first started dating in 2016, they broke up in 2017 and then rekindled their relationship in 2018. By early 2019 the couple was engaged and a year later in March 2020, Perry and Bloom announced that they were expecting a baby.
