Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are the latest celebrity couple to announce they are engaged to be married. The pop star and the actor confirmed the engagement, announcing the news on both of their Instagram accounts. Bloom was said to have proposed to Perry on Valentine’s Day. Sources have shared that the proposal took place at an intimate Valentine’s dinner with just the two stars in attendance.
The proposal was said to be followed by a surprise celebratory party with an exclusive guest list of 30 if the couple’s closest family and friends. The pair first sparked dating rumors in 2016 when they were photographed dancing together at a Golden Globes afterparty. The pair were rumored to have split up later that year but subsequently reunited in 2018. The stars have since kept their relationship out of the public eye. Perry had previously been married to actor and activist Russel Brand, while Bloom had once been married to model, Miranda Kerr. Perry had previously shared her hesitation of marrying again, saying in an interview, “I’m very pragmatic and logistical and I am less fantastical about things… I mean, I was married when I was 25… I’m 34. It was almost 10 years ago. I was like, ‘One person for the rest of my life,’ and I’m not so sure that that idea is for me. I’m just such a different person than I was.”
Perry and Bloom both shared the same image on their Instagram accounts confirming the news. Bloom’s caption read, “Lifetimes,” while Perry shared the phrase “full bloom” in reference to her beau’s name ad well as her flower-like engagement ring. The ring features an oval-shaped pink diamond surrounded by eight smaller white diamonds set in yellow gold.
