  • Orlando Bloom said he and Katy Perry don't have sex as frequently as new parents.
  • "We just had a baby," the actor explained in an interview with The Guardian on Saturday.
  • The engaged couple welcomed their daughter, Daisy Dove Bloom, in August.

Orlando Bloom said he and his fiancée, Katy Perry, don't have sex as much as he'd like following the birth of their daughter, Daisy Dove Bloom, in August.

In an interview with The Guardian published on Saturday, the 44-year-old "Lord of the Rings" actor answered a series of rapid-fire questions about topics ranging from his childhood to his personal life.

"How often do you have sex?" the reporter asked him.

Bloom replied, "Not enough - we just had a baby, though."

While answering who or what he considered the "greatest love" of his life, Bloom listed his 10-year-old son, Flynn Bloom - whom he shares with his ex-wife, Miranda Kerr - along with Daisy and Perry.

Bloom also mentioned his dog Mighty, who died after going missing in July. He later got a tattoo as a tribute to Mighty.

Perry and Bloom, who got engaged in February 2019, have previously spoken about being parents to Daisy, who is now 7 months old.

"It's amazing to be a father again," Bloom said in a recent interview with The Sunday Times, adding, "There's less anxiety this time and more presence."

Perry said on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" in February that Bloom's experience raising Flynn was an asset, adding that having a child was "the best decision" she'd ever made.

"I have family and support, and I've got an incredible fiancé who has done this before - he has a 10-year-old son," the pop star said.

She told Kimmel that while she was initially hesitant to take advice from Bloom based on his past partnership with Kerr, she came to realize that the information was worthwhile.

"As much as I was a little bit like 'I don't need to hear all those stories,' they actually helped," she said, adding: "They're like, oh, you've had a run at this. You know how to do this."

The "American Idol" judge added that Bloom had been an "amazing" and "incredible" partner.

"We're so in love, and we're so grateful," she said.
