Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are officially engaged. The two celebrities shared the happy news on Valentine’s Day. Bloom decided to propose on the day of the year that celebrates love. According to sources, Orlando was planning on popping the question for quite a while. He talked with Katy’s parents and asked for their permission first. Both stars shared the same picture on Instagram, which shows a stunning flower-shaped ring.
Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom were first connected in 2016 when they were seen getting cozy at a Golden Globe after party. We only got to enjoy their relationship for a short time, because the duo announced they were going separate ways in March 2017. Luckily, they got back together again, and now we can expect a wedding.
When it comes to the ring, the word is that it’s worth around $5 million. “Katy’s unbelievable engagement ring from Orlando Bloom would retail in the range of $5 million. What looks to be a 4-carat fancy vivid pink oval-shaped diamond arranged with eight white diamonds around it to assemble a flower ‘in bloom’ – this ring is truly one-of-a-kind and wildly valuable.”- E! News found out from a specialist.
You will see the beautiful flower-shaped bling on her finger, with a striking pink diamond in the middle. The white diamonds around it are placed to create a gorgeous bloom. What’s even more interesting is that everyone’s talking about how the engagement ring Orlando gave Miranda is too similar to the one Katy got.
“They’ve been talking about getting engaged for a while. After reconciling Katy has felt very secure with Orlando and they both knew it was different this time. They made their relationship a priority and both of them literally flew all around the world to keep their relationship strong. She was in such a bad place after her split from Russell [Brand], so to be getting married again is a huge deal. Their friends and family are so happy and excited for them. They are such a great couple. They really took their time to figure out if they could work as a couple. They really wanted to from the beginning, but things are not always easy. They are both proud of how far they have come. Everyone is super excited about the engagement.”- an inside source told People.
This is not the first time for both stars to be engaged. Katy was married to actor Russell Brand from 2010 to 2012 when their divorce was officially finalized. Actually, the singer and the comedian were only 14 months married when they announced the split. The couple met in September 2009, during the MTV Music Awards. A month after the event, the duo was seen out and everyone already knew they were the hottest new celebrity couple. What you’ll be surprised to hear is that Russell proposed only several months into the relationship. He asked Perry to marry him during a New Year’s celebration they were enjoying in India.
Orlando, on the other hand, was married to the gorgeous Miranda Kerr, an Australian model and former Victoria’s Secret Angel. They began dating in 2008 and were together for more than two years before Bloom asked Miranda to marry him. Only months after, the news was that they had a very secret wedding. The duo today shares an 8-year-old son Flynn. The actor and model got a divorce in 2013.
