Here’s a look at five celebrity couples whose marriages remind us of the power of love.
It seems for Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom will not be “The One That Got Away.”
Early Friday morning, Perry and Bloom posted the same photo of Instagram, hinting that they are engaged. USA TODAY has reached out to reps for both for comment.
“full bloom,” Perry, 34, captioned her post, a play on the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star’s surname. “Lifetimes” Bloom, 42, captioned the same pic with numerous heart-shaped red balloons filling the background. In the image, Perry sports a floral-inspired bauble on her ring finger with a rosy, perhaps ruby center, and what appear to be diamonds forming petals around the large center stone.
A Facebook account, which People magazine and Entertainment Tonight identified as belonging to Perry’s mom, Mary Hudson, appeared to confirm the engagement in posts that have since been disappeared from her public timeline.
“Look who got engaged on Valentines Day!” the account wrote. The account also shared a close-up of Perry’s ring.
Bloom and Perry brought their reignited affair to the red carpet last September after deciding to take “loving space” in 2017.
“My boyfriend doesn’t even know that I threw away his toiletry bag while he’s been gone,” she shared. “I told him I got him a new one for Christmas. He said, ‘Oh, this has been around the world for 10 years’ and he wanted to keep it in a drawer. I was like, ‘The moment you leave is the moment this thing is going in the trash.’ ”
She also spoke of the benefits of having a partner.
“It’s easy to be single and not to be called out on your stuff, living your awesome single life thinking you’re the greatest, and the best, and doing anything you want,” she said. “But then when you get in a partnership you guys are there to teach each other lessons.”
This is the second marriage for both Perry and Bloom. She was married to comedian Russell Brand from 2010 to 2012. He was married to model Miranda Kerr from 2010 to 2013. They share one child, Flynn, age 8.
