Orlando Bloom is currently engaged to pop star Katy Perry while Miranda Kerr’s married to Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel, but we can’t forget the six years the two stars spent together.
Though their marriage didn’t last, it did make an impact on their followers who rooted for their love to overcome. From how the couple first met to their eventual split, learn out more about this once great celebrity romance.
How Did Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr?
They met through mutual friends back in 2007 and began dating right away. This came about a year after Bloom officially ended things with his on-and-off girlfriend, actress Kate Bosworth. Bloom and Kerr were very private for the first year of their relationship and didn’t make their public debut until 2008 during Sydney’s Doncaster Day at Randwick Racecourse.
Nearly three years into their relationship, news broke in July of 2010 that Bloom had popped the question to the Victoria’s Secret model. In fact, Bloom asked Kerr to marry him with a nearly 4-carat flower-shaped diamond ring that reportedly cost $65,000.
Just one month after announcing their engagement, the couple married in a very private ceremony on July 22, 2010. Though the wedding was believed to have taken place in the U.S., the details surrounding their nuptials were kept hush-hush.
Starting a Family
The couple happily announced they were expecting their first child in August of 2010, one month after they got married. They then welcomed their son, Flynn, on January 6, 2011, in Los Angeles. A thrilled new father, Bloom has been quoted as saying that his son has turned his world upside down.
After three years of marriage, they announced their separation in a shared statement on October 24, 2013. The divorce was finalized just a few months later, but despite their split, Bloom and Kerr maintain a close relationship for the sake of their son. In fact, Bloom’s current fiancée, Katy Perry, has been spotted spending time with Kerr since she started her romance with the actor.
