“My little mini-me, slash mini my mom, slash mini-Katy,” Bloom described his baby girl, who he and Perry, 35, welcomed in August. The actor revealed that when he first saw the newborn, he immediately thought she most resembled him.
“It was funny because when she first came out I was ‘Oh it’s me it’s a mini-me!’ Then fortunately she got those Katy blues which was perfect,” he recalled of his daughter’s eyes.
“She sort of looked a little bit like my mom so we got a little bit confused because Katy’s breastfeeding this mini-me slash my mom,” Bloom shared.
“Who’s she gonna look like next?” Bloom asked, to which DeGeneres replied that maybe the baby would start to look like her, jokingly, of course.
Bloom also revealed how he has been bonding with his newborn.
He shared how when Perry was still pregnant with Daisy, he would speak to his daughter and “chant a Buddhist mantra” which he’s used since he was 16.
“I would wake up in the morning and [chant], which is what I do anyway every morning,” he told DeGeneres. “So now, I walk into the room and she hears my voice and she sort of soothes a bit. She likes it, she responds very nicely.”
“It’s like I’m a baby whisperer,” he joked, “I’m definitely winning the daddy points.”
In addition, Bloom noted how Daisy is now sleeping through the night, which he notes as “a blessing.”
