A young boy has been born with his left ear missing, but the mom-to-be says she’s proud of his unique and special moment.
Katie Perry’s Baby Boy, born on Saturday, was born with a damaged left ear and will require special care.
The child’s mum, Katy Perry, said the youngster’s experience will be an inspiration for the rest of his life.
Mr Perry, who also works in the arts, said her son was born without any ear.
She said her family are happy to be raising him on the NHS.
“We’re very happy for him to be here because we know that if he could hear and feel anything, he would be the happiest child in the world,” she said.
“The fact that he has this special ear is just so special to us.”
Mr Perry said the young boy’s left ear is now functional, and he was able to sing.
“He has so much joy and happiness in his life, because he has a totally different world,” Mr Perry told reporters outside the hospital.
“It’s the perfect moment.
We are very proud of him.”
