A post shared by KATY PERRY (@katyperry) on

Well, this is something. Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are engaged after about three years of dating. Personally, I always thought that Orly was way more into Katy than she was into him, and I always thought that she tried to break up with him a few times over the course of their three-year relationship. But maybe it’s really a love match, who knows. Katy posted the Instagram, above, showing off the engagement ring. Katy’s mom also posted photos and video of the proposal:

Katy Perry confirmed on Friday that she got engaged to Orlando Bloom on Valentine’s Day, following a three-year on-off romance. The singer, 34, took to Instagram to share a picture of herself and her actor beau, 42, as well as her vintage pink engagement ring, simply writing: ‘Full bloom.’ Orlando shared the same snap, writing: ‘Lifetimes.’

Katy’s mother, Mary Hudson, broke the news on Facebook, sharing images of the emotional proposal and captioning them with: ‘look who got engaged last night’. Katy could be seen crying as she stands under a heart-shaped arch, while posing in the Orlando’s arms. Another shot showed the pair looking emotional while standing on stage, as Orlando takes to the microphone.

Katy looked incredible wearing a pink Alessandra Rich dress as she cosies up to the handsome star. Her nails were painted pink to match the ring, although this may have been a coincidence and she had diamantés artfully applied to one talon.

I had to look it up – Russell Brand dumped Katy by text in 2011, and their divorce was unpleasant, but relatively quick. That was eight years ago, and I’m shocked it was that long. After Brand, she dated John Mayer for a while, although I always thought they were very “off-and-on” too, just like her relationship with Orlando seemed to me. In any case, I’m happy for them. I think Orlando adores her and she likes being adored.

    Who doesn‘t like being adored?😊
    I don‘t know, they seemed to have a tumultuous relationship, on and off all the time. But if they feel like it will work now, good for them. Not a fan of the ring though.

  2. xdanix says:

    Do you really think he adores her that much? I don’t pay attention to them really, but I thought I saw a comment about them somewhere that he got back together with her because he realised it was “better than being single”. Which, if true, doesn’t seem all that great to me, and didn’t leave me with an awesome feeling about them. Like I said though, I really don’t pay attention to either of them, so hopefully they’re super in love and I’ve just missed it, and best of luck to them!

      • Good GRrrrrl says:

        He seems so much infinitely better than the other 2 narcissists, brand & David duke penis John Mayer. She’s lucky, another chance w a kinder man. I wish her luck & mean this.

    • Natalie S says:

      There was a quote where he sounded almost befuddled by how into her he was, but was definitely into her. I think he’s pretentious and Katy didn’t fit into how he viewed his life should be but he was definitely really into her.

  3. horseandhound says:

    I think you’re soooo right about this. katy’s not that into him. he’s very into her. I feel kind of sorry for him. she even publicly said mayer was a better lover than orlando.

  4. Clare says:

    I think after years with that self important POS Russel Brand, she deserves to be with someone who treats her well.

    ‘coincidence and she had diamantés artfully applied to one talon.’

    Talon? TALON? Who writes this sh*t? lol

  5. Alissa says:

    I always thought they were about equally into each other, but they definitely had at least one significant breakup. I don’t think they were together when she did her last album promo.

  6. lana86 says:

    34, Maybe she thinks babies, no time to wait for a great passion

    • Millennial says:

      Ding, ding, ding. My thoughts too. But I’m happy for them, I think they are both getting what they want

      • Josephine says:

        I kinda like them together. I’m hoping he gets a second act as far as his acting career goes. I think he hasn’t gotten the chance to do much and as he ages maybe he can get roles in which he is something other than pretty.

      • Millenial says:

        I think he’d be smart to take a TV gig (as in, of the prestige cable or Netflix series that are 10~ episodes). It could make for a comeback if he chose the right one.

      • Deedee says:

        Why has he never teamed up with Rupert Friend to do a series about brothers or twins?

  7. Lex says:

    Somehow they work very well. So excited for them, even though I don’t really care for either haha. Baby in 18 months max.

  8. Lightpurple says:

    I like the ring. Good luck to them.

    • Yup, Me says:

      It looks a lot like the ring Miranda Kerr had when married to him- only larger and with a gemstone center.

      • sequinedheart says:

        OMG you’re right. It’s the same design, just a different main stone! That’s….odd. But maybe that’s all he likes and thinks the ladies will like. But now since your comment, I can’t unsee the resemblance!!

    • Kittycat says:

      The ring is reportedly worth 5 million.

      • sequinedheart says:

        5 million what? 5 million pennies? 5 million cracker jack prizes?
        If he genuinely paid 5 million dollars, or had it valued for that much, he has more dollars than sense. I don’t buy it. As the cheeto-in-chief likes to say, FAKE NEWS.

      • Jaded says:

        5 million in monopoly money maybe.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Even if it is a pink diamond, I cannot see it being worth 5 million. Then again, Shirley Temple’s natural blue diamond ring was estimated at $20 million. The Oppenheimer Blue diamond went for $57.8 million but it is 14+ carats.

  9. Fiji says:

    Ok – here is my catty comment. I hate her short hair.

    Otherwise.. congratulations… in terms of celebrity couples they register as a ‘meh’ on my buzz scale. Ok, two catty comments

    • Nala says:

      LOL you’re my spirit catty animal FIJI

      I was thinking the same.

      Can she even move in that dress?! I feel uncomfortable just looking at it.

    • Chaine says:

      ITA! Someone needs to tell her it makes her look like an elderly man with a comb-forward.

    • Lucy2 says:

      I hate it too, it is incredibly and flattering on her. I think only people with certain bone structure can pull that off, and while she is pretty, she is just not one of them.

      I also really don’t like the ring, LOL. But hopefully it works out for them. I kind of always forget they’re together.

    • Laura-j says:

      It would be better if it was dark.

    • Snowflake says:

      Yes, I hate it too.

    • khaveman says:

      It’s not even that I hate short cuts on women. I hate THIS haircut. There are some gorgeous short haircuts out there and this is not one of them. It looks trashy and makes all of her outfits look that much more cheap. Sorry, had to say it.

  10. grabbyhands says:

    I hope she ditches the plucked chicken hairstyle before the wedding.

    • smcollins says:

      lol agreed! It’s such a terrible cut and, although she is very pretty, she just doesn’t have the features to pull it off. I imagine it’s even more unflattering when she’s not wearing a pound of makeup. Anyhoo….congrats to them. I hope this one works out for both of them.

  11. Lizzie says:

    congrats. her ring is pretty.

  12. WingKingdom says:

    For reasons unknown, this news gives me great delight. Agree with others- there will be babies soon.

  13. meh says:

    🤷 I’m about to go to the store. Y’all want anything?

  14. TheOriginalMia says:

    Good for them. They’ve seemed more stable and together since the last breakup. I wish them well. The ring is pretty.

  15. Zabar says:

    Wasn’t he hooking up with Selena Gomez at some point while he was with Katy??

  16. Smalltowngirl says:

    I always thought the opposite, that she was far more into him. He was the one photographed with other women. I always felt like he was with her because it put him back in the conversation not because of any deep romantic love.

  17. Ali says:

    I loved him as Legolas in Lord of the Rings and I really wish she’d grow her hair out. That’s all I’ve got.

    • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

      I agree with both those comments. In LOTR, he was a quiet but effective elf. I like strong and silent. 😀

    • JanetDR says:

      Me too! I just watched an old episode of Midsomer Murders and he is in an early episode of season 3 and he was very young and cute then, but I have to say that I will always love the but older elf!
      Wishing them all the best!

  18. Olive says:

    i miss katy with long dark hair. she was so pretty then.

  19. Spicecake38 says:

    I feel this way about so many celebs who have been in the spotlight since a young age,but I can’t believe she’s online 34, it seems like she should be about 50,not bc of looks (although the hair is not so good),but it just feels like she’s been around forever,I also said same thing in one of the posts about Pryanka and the Jonas guy- he’s been around forever and I can’t believe he’s 26,it seems like he should be 40 at least.Oh well wish them the best.

  20. Tiffany says:

    This was one of my 2019 predictions.

    Congrats you two.

  21. ItReallyIsYou,NotMe says:

    I used to think that if you break up once, you’ll break up again. But I have been proven wrong by friends who married their husbands after multiple breakups and are going strong 10 years later, so I have changed my opinion. Now I think that some people just have drama before they realize they really want to be with their person for the long haul. Congratulations to Katy and Orly!

    • lucy2 says:

      I know a few who broke up, then got back together and married. Only one of them seems happy. 🙁

    • Dee Kay says:

      I think it’s a problem when ppl break up and get back together only because there’s always someone who never forgets. Either the one who got dumped never lets it go, or their family keeps bringing it up, or the one who did the breaking up remembers that they once got rid of their partner and can do it again. But there are much worse things that can be trouble in a relationship. Having broken up and gotten back together is far from the most terrible thing two ppl can do to each other.

  22. Case says:

    They’re really not a cute couple, IMO. But congrats to them nonetheless.

  23. Elisabeth says:

    ring is ugly

  24. Claudia says:

    I love them together. I follow them both on Instagram and they seem equally into each other to me, they’re just keeping relatively low-key and quiet about their relationship. And all of Katy’s close friends seem to really like him and approve of them together.

  25. minx says:

    That’s nice. Congrats to them.

  26. Div says:

    They seem good together. Like her previous partners were always in the tabloids, but they’ve managed to keep this relationship super quiet.

  27. Lindy says:

    I like them together and it seems like they’ve gotten to a point of being happy and at ease. I’ve read somewhere that she’s really lovely and wonderful with his son, too, and as someone who is divorced and remarried, that was my number one criterion for ever dating anyone again, ever.

    Also, holy god I love her ring!!!

  28. tealily says:

    I’m not sure I knew they were dating.

  29. Kerfuffle says:

    Katy pretty much always comes across as the one who gets dumped (though Travie McCoy talked about how badly she messed him up after their breakup) even if she’s the one who did the literal dumping. I’ll never get over her being incredibly impressed by John Mayer doing the crossword puzzle IN PEN.

    That said, I think she could do better than Orlando, who seems to think that it’s still 2003.

  30. Sayrah says:

    Congrats to them! Hate the ring though

  31. pollyv says:

    The ring is very “twee”.

  32. Mrs. Peel says:

    These two are bland and blander – they could not be any more boring if they tried.

  33. Andrea says:

    They are made for each other, for both their careers have been waning.

  34. Littlefishmom says:

    Is it wrong that I can’t stand her? Or him? Or that hideous ring?

  35. JRenee says:

    Love the picture with Nancy Pelosi lol.
    The ring is beautiful!

  36. Lindy says:

    Haha apparently I’m the only one who loves her ring? I really do, though!

  37. Patty says:

    I took like her ring! It’s a little different but not too far out there.

    I think they are good match, they’ve been together three years and they know what they are getting into. I also recognize that I don’t know them and know nothing about their relationship – tabloid gossip doesn’t provide an accurate, clear, or whole picture.

    What I find interesting is that earlier this week Nick and Priyanka were doomed to relationship failure because they had a short courtship and are thirsty; and it looks like Katy and Orlando are doomed to failure as well after a three year courtship.

  38. Snowflake says:

    I think Orlando looks great at this age. When he was younger, he didn’t do anything for me. Now i think he looks very sexy.

  39. CK says:

    I hope this means she won’t be as insufferably thirsty about attractive male contestants on the upcoming season of American Idol. It was a bit that went on way too long and was uncomfortable. Not to mention it brought back shades of J. Lo judging low points.

  40. Mitzy says:

    That ring is nastorama 🙁 no likey at all.

  41. A says:

    please girl, grow your hair out. short hair looks adorable on some, but not everyone can pull it off.

  42. Ari says:

    I will admit I awwwed a bit reading this.
