Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom first sparked romance in 2016 after they were spotted getting cozy and sweet at the Golden Globes. At the time, fans weren’t sure how to feel about the two, who admitted they immediately hit it off after the awards night.
Fast forward to now or almost four years after the event and they are nearing to tie the knot. That’s how serious the couple is when it comes to the next milestone in their life.
So, what’s their secret to staying happy and in love for that long? The singer revealed that their relationship is centered on finding the balance.
A proof that they are meant to be is Katy referring to Orlando as her anchor, who keeps her grounded and who aids her on her spiritual journey. The Harleys in Hawaii hitmaker further admitted she and the Carnival Row star constantly suck the poison out of each other even though that task is rigorous.
Katy, whose real name is Katheryn Hudson, shared that this relationship is far from her previous ones because Orlando went on a spiritual and emotional journey with her. She tied the knot with comedian Russell Brand in 2010 at an outrageously lavish ceremony in India while the Lord of the Rings star has a son with ex, model Miranda Kerr.
In 2016, Katy and Orlando became an item after the Golden Globes incident. After a series of outings that showed how sweet they were, news that they have broken up erupted.
The couple made it known in February 2017 that they were indeed taking a break, thereby crushing the hearts of their fans. Months later, they gave the public hope when they attended an Ed Sheeran concert together, sparking reconciliation speculations.
However, both of them seemed to have dismissed that thought in separate interviews. Come April 2018, the two of them got back together.
By Valentine’s Day last year, Orlando popped the important question to Katy, who revealed that it happened during a helicopter ride. Once she gave her sweet yes, their friends and family were waiting at the building that they landed.
However, fans were quick to point out that Katy’s ring was highly similar to what Orlando gave Miranda, except that the singer’s was in a different hue.
Having been married before to other people, the couple is making sure they are not rushing things. Katy said they are both focused on building a strong foundation for the next phase of their lives together.
