It was a very special Valentine’s Day for Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom. After three years of dating on and off, the pop star and actor are engaged! The couple confirmed the news early this morning on Instagram, sharing a selfie that shows Perry’s unique engagement ring.
Known to follow her own style rules, it makes sense that the songstress would want something nontraditional. The flower-shaped ring features eight diamond stones surrounding a larger pink jewel in the center, what appears to be a ruby. “Full bloom,” Perry captioned the image, making a cute (and clever!) play on Bloom’s name. Bloom followed up, sharing the same image with a simple caption: “Lifetimes.”
Perry's mom also shared photos from what appeared to be an engagement party, including a close-up of the ring. “Look who got engaged on Valentines Day!!” she wrote, though the posts were later removed.
Perry, 34, and Bloom, 42, began dating back in January 2016. Both out of previous relationships — Perry with ex-husband Russel Brand and Bloom with ex-wife Miranda Kerr – things heated up quickly. The romance lasted about a year before they decided to take an amicable split and give each other some space to focus on their careers. They remained friendly and celebrated the 2018 New Year vacationing in the Maldives, sparking rumors that the relationship was back on.
“I have been spoken for... and I’m very happy,” Perry confirmed to Entertainment Tonight back in April 2018.
Major congratulations to the couple!
