How Orlando Bloom Proposed to Katy Perry
Wedding bells are ringing for American Idol judge Katy Perry and her beau actor, Orlando Bloom. After a long winding road to one another, the two have finally decided to spend the rest of their lives together.
Bloom proposed to Perry on the most romantic day of the year, Valentine’s Day.
How Orlando Bloom proposed
Perry went on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday night to dish about the proposal. The singer had no idea that something special was about to happen on Valentine’s Day but she was pleasantly surprised.
“We went to dinner and I thought we were going to go see some art after dinner, but we pulled up to a helicopter,
Though proposing in a helicopter flying over the city of angels is a great idea in theory, things didn’t go exactly according to plan.
“Actually, the funny part is we had champagne in the helicopter and the box was in his pocket and he had written down everything he wanted to say in a note to divert,” she said.
“He was going to pull it out while I’m reading it, so I’m reading it but I’m hearing the champagne is like broken, the bottle’s everywhere. I’m still looking at the note but he’s pulling out this box that’s too big for his coat pocket and it rips his coat pocket and his elbow goes into the champagne.”
Despite the awkwardness of the actual proposal, Perry still gave her fiance props for the idea.
“He did so well,” she continued.
Once the helicopter landed, Bloom and Perry were greeted by her friends and family who had been waiting nearby.
How Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry met
Apparently, Bloom and Perry owe their relationship to In-N-Out Burger. She recounted how they met about three years ago at the Golden Globes when Bloom took an In-N-Out burger off of her table.
“He stole one off of my table. I was sitting with Denzel Washington and he took it,” Perry told Kimmel.
At first, the singer was annoyed to have a burger stolen from her, but when she turned around and saw how attractive Bloom was, she calmed down.
She later saw him at a party and brought up the incident.
“Then later I was at a party and I was like ‘how are those onions resting on your molars?’ and he was like ‘I like you.”
By February of 2016, the two were taking holidays together and pictures surfaced of them looking really cozy in Hawaii.
Though they seemed to be very in love, the pair went their separate ways in March of 2017. They released a joint statement at the time, detailing the breakup.
“Before rumors or falsifications get out of hand, we can confirm that Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time,” the statement read.
Bloom and Perry couldn’t stay away from one another for long, though, and a few months later, they were seen spending a lot of time together once again.
By February of 2018, they were officially back together.
A year later, Bloom proposed.
