Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are engaged after dating for three years
Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom won Valentine's Day this year by getting engaged! The pair, who have been involved in an on-and-off relationship for three years, took to social media to announce the happy news.
Perry posted a photo of herself and Bloom to Instagram, which showcased her unconventional, vintage pink engagement ring. "Full bloom," she captioned the snap.
The singer's mother, Mary Hudson, proceeded to confirm the news, and shared images of the sweet proposal, under which she wrote, "Look who got engaged last night".
Bloom posted the same photo to his Instagram, simply adding "Lifetimes".
In a separate Instagram posted on V-Day, the Pirates of the Caribbean star wrote "A shallow person will only have shallow relationships. Real love is not one person clinging to another, it can only be fostered between two strong people secure in their individuality."
And while he didn't mention his now-fiancée by name, he did proceed to quote Antoine de Saint-Exupery, author of The Little Prince: "Love is not two people gazing at each other, but two people looking ahead together in the same direction."
Just one month prior to their engagement, the Firework singer shared a loving tribute to Bloom in honour of his 42nd birthday. "Happiest 42nd birthday to the kindest and cutest man I’ve had the pleasure of spending time with," she captioned a snap of the actor wearing a jumper which read "woman power."
Perry and Bloom have been rather up-and-down in recent years. They were initially together for a year, before they split in February of 2017. "We can confirm that Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time," representatives for the two celebrities told PEOPLE at the time.
A month later, Perry took to social media to clarify that all was well between the two after the breakup. "HOW BOUT A NEW WAY OF THINKING FOR 2017!?" she wrote. "U can still b friends & love ur former partners! No one’s a victim or a villain, get a life y’all!"
"We’re friends, it’s good," Bloom corroborated in Elle UK's May 2017 issue. "We’re all grown up. She happens to be someone who is very visible, but I don’t think anybody cares about what I’m up to. Nor should they. It’s between us. It’s better to set an example for kids and show that [breakups] don’t have to be about hate."
However, just six months later, it seemed like it was all back on. "Orlando and Katy are great. They are dating exclusively again and things seem more serious," an insider told PEOPLE at the time. "They are both excited about it and don’t want to hide, but at the same time they are trying to keep privacy as well. … It’s obvious that they both missed each other after their split. … It’s obvious that they both missed each other after their split."
And in May of 2018, Perry made it official, announcing "I'm not single" during the American Idol finale.
Well, she's certainly not on the market now.
