Orlando Bloom may get engaged to Katy Perry: ‘He realized being single isn’t that great’

It seems like Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom keep saying they’re ready to get engaged. This time, it could really be happening.

The couple walked the red carpet separately but sat together at the amfAR Gala in Los Angeles last week. Side note: they also raised a lot of money for an excellent cause, so I have to give kudos when they’re due. And, according to PEOPLE, Orlando is ready to “settle down” with Katy.

A source told the magazine that “She hasn’t put any pressure on their relationship lately, and everything is just easy. Being with Katy makes Orlando very happy. In the past, he seemed so scattered and unwilling to settle down. He is like a new person now and everyone is excited for him.”

After breaking up and making up, Orlando, 41, and Katy, 33, be hearing wedding bells (or, as many commenters have remarked, hearing biological clocks ticking)? According to PEOPLE’s source, Orlando is now in a “different place” and “has matured a lot. He realized that being single isn’t that great after all. His relationship with Katy wasn’t right the first time around, but it very much is now.”

So, Orlando is ready to settle down, hopefully. I hope that Katy’s not just settling. She’s still got plenty of time for motherhood and doesn’t strike me as someone who would ever have a problem finding a man who would be more than happy to give her the sun, moon and stars. That’s what we all deserve, right? But, hey, Katy just wrapped her tour and Orlando is filming a movie where he’s playing second to Scott Eastwood, so maybe it’s time for them to give marriage a go.

    *How romantic* they should put that settling comment in there vows at their barefoot beach wedding.

    Orlando Bloom has become his ex-wife. He’s a reacher just like her.

    • Patty says:

      What? The dude is more than likely set for life. And he’s more famous in some parts than Katy Perry. All heartthrobs eventually age and transition. I wouldn’t call him a reacher or social climber. Him and Katy have had a couple of goes on the merry go round at this point. I think they just really like and love each other.

      • Layla Beans says:

        He may be set, but he’s not a thing anymore. A quick glance at IMDB tells the tale. When you’re second fiddle to Scott Eastwood…oof.

      • perplexed says:

        He’s still rich though. I’m sure he invested his Pirates of the Caribbean money. Maybe not rich enough for Miranda Kerr, but who is?

        Being rich without having to deal with the hassles of fame is probably underrated.

        He’s never really seemed like a womanizer a la Leonardo DiCaprio to me. He’s always seemed like the type to want to settle down with…er, someone. I can only list three of his former girlfriends: Kate Bosworth, Miranda Kerr, and now Katy Perry. I don’t think he’s ever been like John Mayer (who I think may have also dated Katy). I always thought he looked good with Keira Knightly but he’s never seemed to have a long list of ex-es by Hollywood standards. If he secretly has a long list of ex-lovers that hits the 500s, I’d be shocked because he’s always seemed like a puppy dog to me (who maybe once punched Justin Bieber).

    I always do wonder what happened to his Career he ought to have been a bigger star than he is today

    • Coco says:

      He was part of two huge franchises but never able to carry a movie on his own.

    • Kerfuffle says:

      Have you seen him in a movie where he had to actually try to act? He is awful. And not nearly as pretty without the blond wig, sadly.

  4. Kerfuffle says:

    Translation: everything has really slowed down for Orlando and he realizes that he’s not Leonardo DiCaprio and that Katy is a total catch.

  5. minx says:

    They might as well. They’ve been together for awhile and seem compatible, so do it.

  6. Millenial says:

    “He’s matured a lot” — I mean, I would hope so? He’s 41 years old. He’s got a 7 or 8 year old kid. I hope he hasn’t been acting like a frat boy this whole time.

  7. Wow says:

    I never thought I’d see the day that celebitchy accused a women of being in a relationship because her clock might be ticking. Super feminists of you ladies….

    Edit – ok they were referring to commenters, but still lol

    • Fifi says:

      And she’s not even older. Early 30s. You guys are super sexist you know.

      Her clock isn’t ticking. She can easily freeze her eggs and have kids at 40.

      • Hannah says:

        There is nothing easy about freezing your eggs, doing in vitro, or being pregnant at 40. There is nothing wrong with having children, or wanting to have children as early as possible. Speak to anyone who’s had children in their 20s and 30s or 40s and they’ll tell you it only gets harder with age.

  8. TyrantDestroyed says:

    They seem to share a love for philanthropy and causes. I don’t understand the hate for this couple, they are less thirsty than so many other famous duos and seem happy. I hope they settle down and Katy changes her wardrobe choices, especially that terrible feathery gown 😑

    • Ruyana says:

      …and lets her hair grow! That short do makes her neck look a mile long and she looks more like a bobblehead.

  9. Mo' Comments Mo' Problems says:

    Something about this relationship screams “mid-life crisis” to me! They are certainly an oddball pairing, but truly hope they’ve found love with each other.

  10. Alyse Leitao says:

    They seem like a good match imho

    She needs a new stylist desperately

  11. Blonde555 says:

    I don’t think they suit eachother at all. I don’t get any chemistry between them, body language is off, more of a friendship vibe. I think orlando was really hurt by Miranda and Kate is probably a great sounding board for him.. can’t see this lasting at all
