Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry has left the entertainment world buzzing after news of their recent engagement.

After three years of an on and off again relationship, the couple is ready to embark on many more years together.

From flirtatious beginnings to to a proposal, let’s check out a complete timeline of Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry’s relationship.

They were first seen flirting with one another

In January 2016, Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry attended the Golden Globes after party and were reported to have been flirting with each other the entire night.

It was revealed that the two celebrities were whispering in each other’s ears throughout the night and enjoyed getting to know one another.

“Katy and Orlando had a total dance-off—it was the best part of the party,” a source told Us Weekly at the time. “Katy literally dropped to the floor and was waving her booty around, beckoning Orlando.”

They tried not to make their relationship obvious

In May 2016, Bloom and Perry both attended the amfAR Gala during the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, separately.

Many news outlets confirmed that the two were just hooking up at that time.

While at the event, Bloom and Perry tried their best to avoid one another in order to keep their new-found relationship on the down low.

That same month, Katy Perry seemed to confirm her relationship with Bloom on Instagram.

The singer shared a photo of the two of them laying out on the steps of Cannes’ Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc.

She captioned the photo,  “we cannes’t.”
