Orlando Bloom is soon going to be a girl dad. 

With his famous fiancée Katy Perry expecting their first child together, the actor is looking forward to getting to spend time with his little girl. 

"I'm excited," the actor said in a remote interview on Good Morning America. "It's a magical time when an angel pops into the planet, which is what it feels like for me...you know those quiet times at home just you and the family and a little one and nursing and just sort of being present and seeing where you can help and what you can do to nurture a little life into the world."

While some parents may dread the lack of sleep that comes with a newborn, Bloom sees a sweet silver lining. 

"I'm really looking forward to those very late nights where I'll probably be getting up and doing a bottle, breastfeed-bottle thing because I won't be obviously breastfeeding, but I'm sure there will be bottles...I'm looking forward to that because I love those quiet times at night when the world feels like it's asleep and you've got a sleeping baby."

Katy Perry's Pregnancy Style

The Outpost star is no stranger to bottle duty—he's also dad to 9-year-old Flynn Bloom with ex-wife Miranda Kerr

In a recent interview on Mix 104.1's Karson & Kennedy, Perry said of Bloom, "I think he's really excited for a little girl...They say that little girls are, you know, daddy's little girl. That's how it's going to be. We'll see."

As for first-time mom-to-be, Perry's "been every emotion under the sun."

"I've been overwhelmed, I've been anxious, I've been happy, I've been overjoyed, I've been depressed—I've been all of it," she said. "The world is just a wild time, and it's a wild time to bring life into the world. I mean, people were already having those kinds of conversations years ago where it's like, 'Man, the world feels a little uncertain.' And now, it really feels shaky boots."
