Orlando Bloom opened up about his and fiancée Katy Perry's daughter, Daisy Dove Bloom, and said the baby resembles both parents. 

"It was funny because when she first came out I was like, 'Oh it's me it's a mini-me!' Then, fortunately, she got those Katy blues which was perfect," Bloom said of the newborn during an interview on Wednesday's episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."

The 43-year-old "Carnival Row" star went on to call Daisy his "little mini-me, slash mini-my-mom, slash mini-Katy," since the baby somewhat looks like his mother as well.

The actor, who practices Buddhism, also told the talk-show host that he begins every morning by chanting and Daisy "soothes a bit" when she hears his voice.

"She responds very nicely," he said. "It's like I'm a baby whisperer. I'm definitely winning daddy points."

Perry revealed her pregnancy back in March 2020 by releasing the music video for her new song "Never Worn White" and gave birth in August. 

The 35-year-old singer and Bloom, who are Goodwill Ambassadors for UNICEF, shared the baby news with fans via the organization's social media accounts. 

"We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter," the stars, who met in 2016, said.

Welcome to the world, Daisy Dove Bloom! We are honoured to introduce Goodwill Ambassadors @KatyPerry and @OrlandoBloom’s new bundle of joy.⠀ ⠀ “We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter,” Katy and Orlando told us.⠀ ⠀ “But we know we’re the lucky ones and not everyone can have a birthing experience as peaceful as ours was. 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 because of the increased lack of access to water, soap, vaccines and medicines that prevent diseases. As parents to a newborn, this breaks our hearts, as we empathize with struggling parents now more than ever.⠀ ⠀ “As UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors, we know UNICEF is there, on the ground, doing whatever it takes to make sure every expecting mother has access to a trained health worker and access to quality healthcare. In celebration of the heart we know our daughter already has, we have set up a donation page to celebrate DDB’s arrival. By supporting them, you are supporting a safe start to life and reimagining a healthier world for every child. We hope your ♥️ can bloom with generosity.⠀ ⠀ Gratefully-⠀ ⠀ Katy & Orlando.”⠀ ⠀ Please tap the link in our bio to support the most precious gift: a healthy child.

Speaking to DeGeneres, Bloom said that it's a "process" raising a newborn, and the couple's child is now sleeping through the night, from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.

The "Lord of the Rings" alum also spoke about how his 9-year-old son Flynn, who he shares with ex-wife Miranda Kerr, has been reacting to the new addition to the family.

"For the first time, he has a sister. He's very well-versed in little babies, his mom's got a couple," Bloom said, referring to the two sons that Kerr has with husband Evan Spiegel. "He's got a couple of little brothers. He's the best."
