Before Bloom was with Perry, he was married to supermodel Miranda Kerr. The “Lord of the Rings” actor shares a 10-year-old son named Flynn with Kerr. There is no beef between Perry and Kerr – far from it. The two women are good friends.
In an August appearance on the podcast “Moments With Candace Parker,” Kerr even joked that she likes Perry more than she likes her ex-husband. “I mean, it’d be safe to say that I love her more than Flynn’s dad,” she said. Kerr even said she now sees Bloom as a brother. “And most of the time, an annoying brother,” she joked.
Perry was previously married to comedian and actor Russell Brand for just 14 months.
Kerr Says She’s Happy Bloom Found Someone
In a May interview with People, the former Victoria’s Secret angel opened up about co-parenting with Bloom and how she feels about his relationship with Perry.
“I just feel so happy that Orlando found someone that makes him happy, because at the end of the day, for Flynn to have a happy father and a happy mother is the most important thing,” Kerr told the outlet.
She added that it makes it easier that she gets along with her ex’s new partner. “Fortunately for me, I absolutely adore Katy. I just feel so happy that Orlando has her, just like I’m so grateful that I found my husband a little over a year after Orlando and I had separated,” she said.
Are Perry and Bloom Already Married?
Perry announced her engagement to Bloom via Instagram with a photo of her wearing a diamond and ruby ring shaped like a flower. “Full bloom,” read the caption. The following August, Perry gave birth to the couple’s first child together, Daisy Dove Bloom.
“American Idol” mentor Bobby Bones let it slip in a May 2021 interview with Us Weekly that Bloom and Perry are already married. “It was so small that I did not get that invite,” Bones said. “I did not go to the wedding. And I understood why, although I was jealous,” he added.
In March, Page Six reported that Perry was spotted wearing what looked to be a wedding band on her left ring finger. Neither Perry nor Bloom has confirmed that a wedding has already taken place.
