How did Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry meet?

The couple first met at Harvey Weinstein's Golden Globes after-party in 2016, but Orlando warned they're "not by any means the kind of Hollywood love story you might want to hear about."

Perry and Bloom split in February 2017 and didn't reconcile until over a year later, in the following April.

The Lord of the Rings star then popped the question last Valentine's Day.

The couple has been forced to postpone their wedding because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Perry later told talk show host Jimmy Kimmel that the two bonded over In-and-Out burgers at the party.

"He stole one off of my table," she said in 2019. "He took it, and I was like, 'Wait! Who — oh, you're so hot. Fine, take it!'

In May of the same year, the two were spotted at the Cannes Film Festival, but did not attend any events together.

Two days later, Perry tweeted: "U can still b friends & love ur former partners!"

August 2017

The pair were spotted together again attending an Ed Sheeran concert, sparking reconciliation rumors.

Less than one month later, Perry addressed their meet on Sirius XM. 

"I think people are in and out of your life. It's nice to keep people you love around you," she said.

"For me, it's never so extreme. So, when you get older, lines get blurred. And you know what, I'm really busy. I'm about to go on tour for another year."

Bloom told ELLE UK in November 2017 that he and Perry were "friends."

April 2018

The duo confirmed they were officially back on when Perry confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that she was in a relationship.

"You're holding him in a way that I am not excited about," she said to fans to sell the prize to them.

"You're holding his pecs and his six-pack — and it's so glorious. … You get to hold on to Orlando for about 45 minutes … and then, you get to stare into his brown eyes!"

"Laura, I'm sorry. I'm buying it for $50,000," she later exclaimed to a fan who bid $20,000 for a date with Bloom.

February 2019

The two got engaged on Valentine's Day in February last year.

Perry told a radio host that she knew something was up when Bloom showed up to a romantic Italian restaurant dressed up, a far cry from his usual casual sneakers and T-shirt combo.

The couple posted the same close-up couple shot on Instagram, featuring a massive flower-shaped pink diamond on Perry's left ring finger.

January 2020

Perry said in an interview with Vogue India that Bloom was "not the number one fan of Katy Perry, but he's the number one fan of Katheryn Hudson."

"Orlando is like a sage. When we first met, he said we would pull the poison out of each other, and we really do," she continued.

"It's exhausting, but we really hold each other accountable. I've never had a partner who was willing to go on an emotional and spiritual journey like Orlando.

"It's challenging because you're facing all the things you don't like about yourself. It's like a never-ending cleanse."

March 2020

Perry revealed that she was pregnant in her music video for the song, Never Worn White.

The video was uploaded to YouTube on March 5.

"It's important to me that we are aligned — I've been married and divorced and I don't want to do it again," Bloom said during an appearance on Today.

"And we're both fully aware of that. She's remarkable and so I'm always so impressed with that and I'm encouraged."

When is Katy Perry due?

Perry hasn't chosen to reveal her due date with the world so far.

But she appeared to hint at the fact her bundle of joy could be arriving in July/August 2020.

In an Instagram post following her announcement, she wrote: "let's just say it's gonna be a jam-packed summer."

While she also mentioned summer in an Instagram live chat, as she told fans: "There's a lot that will be happening this summer."

What happened to Orlando’s dog Mighty?

Bloom's dog Mighty went missing in California last month after he escaped from a yard.

The actor told the Santa Barbara News-Press in an interview that he had put Mighty in the yard behind the house the couple were staying at to play with another dog.

“Another dog was around and I thought he would be playing with that dog.

“After about eight minutes, I started looking for him, and he had gone off on an adventure," said Bloom.

"My two assumptions are he’s wandered off and gone down a ditch and can’t get himself out or someone has come across him and picked him up and is trying to take care of the little dog they’ve found.

“I’m not suggesting any malintent."

Bloom began to search the neighborhood and put up posters offering $5,000 for the return of the little dog.

One week later, Mighty’s collar was found, forcing the actor to accept Mighty was dead.
