Katy & Orlando: their cutest moments
Since Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom met at the Golden Globes, it’s been a wild, joyous ride. In honour of his 44th birthday, here are some of their best bits
JANUARY 2016 A GOLDEN GLOBES MEETING
We have the Globes, Denzel Washington and a burger to thank for Korlando (sorry). While presenting an award, Orlando spotted Katy on Denzel’s table. He then headed over and asked to steal a burger. “Denzel said, ‘Sure.’ So, I took one and winked at Katy. And that was it,” Orlando’s since said. Smooth.
MAY 2016 INSTA OFFICIAL
When it comes to celebrity couple Instagram debuts, we all know the rule is “go big or go home”. Case in point: Katy’s photo of the pair wearing white dressing gowns while sprawled out on the steps at Hotel du Cap-EdenRoc, Cannes.
AUGUST 2016 *THOSE* PADDLEBOARD PICS
When photos of Orlando paddleboarding naked in Italy surfaced, the internet went wild. Katy has since said, “Everybody was naked. It’s Europe, it’s Italy. I think he wanted to fit in with the locals.”
SEPTEMBER 2018 RED CARPET DEBUT
Listening to Ed clearly did the trick, because they couldn’t take their eyes off one another when they attended the Global Ocean Gala in Monaco together. It was the first time they’d appeared on the red carpet as a couple in their two years of dating.
AUGUST 2017 THE MAGIC OF ED SHEERAN
In March 2017, reps for the pair confirmed they’d split. But fast forward a matter of months and Orlando and Katy were pictured at an Ed Sheeran concert in LA together, confirming they were back on. Katy later explained that the time apart made them much stronger.
FEBRUARY 2019 SHE SAID “YES!”
Orlando proposed to Katy on Valentine’s Day, 2019, with a ruby and diamond ring. He casually popped the question in a helicopter that then whisked them to a mystery location where Katy’s closest friends and family were waiting. “He did so well,” she said. Slick.
MARCH 2020 BABY BLOOM INCOMING
Katy teased her pregnancy in her Never Worn White music video as she cradled her bump. She later told fans, “We’re excited, and happy. It’s probably the longest secret I’ve ever had to keep.”
AUGUST 2020 THEY BECAME A THREE
Orlando and Katy welcomed their little girl, Daisy. They both shared this picture, below, with the caption, “We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter.”
