“Sometimes things are really, really, really, challenging — I won’t lie,” Orlando Bloom said of his long romance with fiancée Katy Perry
With Katy Perry standing by his side, Orlando Bloom is open about his life.
The 46-year-old actor spoke candidly about the difficulties the couple faces and how their relationship “never has a dull moment” on the cover of Flaunt Magazine’s most recent issue.
Bloom told the magazine that Perry, 38, is his “baby mama and life partner,” adding, “We’re in two very different pools.”
I don’t think she necessarily understands my pool, and I don’t think she necessarily understands her pool either, he continued. “There are times when things are really, really, really difficult. I’m not lying.
We certainly struggle with our emotions and our creativity, but I think we both recognize how fortunate we are, have uniquely connected in the way that we did at the time that we did, and there’s definitely never a dull moment.” said Bloom.
“I met my boyfriend over In-N-Out. We were at the Golden Globes and we weren’t together,” she said. “So I had my security guard grab 10 In-N-Outs and all of a sudden I see my boyfriend’s hand — he wasn’t even sitting at our table — he just swoops in and he grabs it and I was like, ‘Hey that’s my burger!’ “
Bloom then proposed to Perry on Valentine’s Day 2019. “It was very sweet,” Perry recounted during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! days later. “It was Valentine’s Day … we went to dinner and I thought we were going to go see some art after dinner but we pulled up to a helicopter.”
She continued, “We landed on a rooftop [in Los Angeles] — my whole family was there, and all my friends. He did so well.”
On August 27, 2020, the couple gave birth to a daughter named Daisy Dove.
Perry and Bloom, who are both Goodwill Global Ambassadors for UNICEF, used the organization to make the baby’s birth public. A black-and-white image of the infant holding her father’s finger while Perry held her wrist was posted by the charity.
In 2022, Perry updated on her daughter and how parenting was going while promoting De Soi, her line of non-alcoholic apéritifs.
The “Teenage Dream” singer said, “Daisy is great. “She is a combination of both her father and me because we are both fearless characters with a lot of chutzpah. Therefore, the two of us are definitely coming together.
“It’s amazing to see everything new again through a toddler’s eyes,” she added.
