The couple was “not engaged yet, but seem to be heading that way,” a source told the magazine at the time, adding, “He would love to settle down with Katy and have more kids. He hasn’t been this serious about a girl since Miranda.”
Bloom was previously married to supermodel Mirana Kerr. The two share a 5-year-old son, Flynn.
