Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom's romance started in 2016. Perry said the two first met at the Golden Globes after-party. She was at a table with Denzel Washington when suddenly Bloom swooped in and grabbed a burger from their table.

Perry told him that the burger was hers. She noted that Bloom was taking the burger from a table he wasn't even sitting at. However, when she saw how cute he looked, Perry let him take the burger. The two met again at a party and hit it up right away.

In August 2016, a source revealed that Bloom was taken by Perry and wanted to settle down with her and have more kids. The actor was already a dad of one when he met Perry. Bloom shares a son, Flynn, with his ex-wife Miranda Kerr.

Kerr and Bloom divorced in 2013 after being married for three years. Prior to dating Bloom, Perry was in an on-and-off relationship with John Mayer, whom she started dating in 2012.

On February 14, 2019, the lovebirds got engaged. A happy Perry said Bloom planned the whole thing. She thought the two were going to a restaurant for dinner and then see some art afterward, but instead, Bloom took her on a helicopter ride, where he proposed to Perry and she said yes.

The pair landed on a rooftop in Los Angeles, and Perry was surprised to see her whole family and friends there for a celebration. The singer noted that Bloom wanted the proposal to be so special that he had even asked her parents for approval before proposing.

Over a year after the engagement, the couple had happy news for their fans. In March 2020, Perry announced she was pregnant on the official music video of her song "Never Worn White." The singer looked gorgeous, cradling her baby bump.

In August 2020, an Instagram announcement on the UNICEF page confirmed that Perry and Bloom had welcomed their first child together, a daughter, Daisy Dove Bloom. Perry and Bloom said they were filled with love and wonder at the safe and healthy arrival of their daughter.

When Perry and Bloom began their parenting journey, the singer said she wasn't very maternal. However, Perry saw how great Bloom was at parenting his first child, Flynn, and she learned from him to be a great mom to their daughter. The singer said the father of two was filled with love and was like a love machine, which rubbed off on her.

Bloom's ex, Kerr, also said she and the actor co-parent well because they learned to put their child's desires ahead of theirs. Kerr and her husband, Evan Spiegel, have even gone on vacation with Bloom and Perry, as well as their kids. Kerr said they were a blended family that enjoyed each other's company and had a great time.

The "Teenage Dream" singer and Bloom's relationship is still going strong, though they've both admitted that it's a work in progress. In June 2023, Perry said the two were amid a three-month sober pact. They made this pact to find a balance in their lives and let their bodies bounce back a little. The Grammy nominee also said this pact was also to support Bloom, who was busy shooting a movie in London.

In an Instagram post on April 30, 2023, Perry admitted she and Bloom "put in the work" to make sure their relationship is okay. She called Bloom "my fighter" because he is always willing to fall down with her and get back up together again.

Bloom also admitted that their relationship has its ups and downs. The actor said he and Perry are from "different pools" when it comes to their creativity. "Sometimes things are really, really, really, challenging. I won't lie. We definitely battle with our emotions and creativity," he added.

However, the movie star said he and Perry understand that they are blessed to have a unique connection and there's "never a dull moment" between them.

Bloom and Perry have been engaged for four years but are yet to get married. Perry confessed that the two want to get married in a special and distant place, but the COVID-19 pandemic and the new variants of the virus have made it hard for their plans to materialize.

Now that some normalcy has resumed globally, fans of Bloom and Perry are looking forward to them tying the knot. However, Perry revealed in 2019 that they are already living together and enjoying their time as a happy and loving couple.
