Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom’s romance has come a long way since it first heated up in January 2016 at a Golden Globes bash.
When Perry was honored in November by Hillary Clinton at the UNICEF Snowflake Ball in New York City, she had Bloom by her side, and she reflected on what she’d learned from him since their romance began.
“Everyone is a teacher in a relationship. That’s how I see it now,” she said to ET. “We’ve taught each other a lot.” She also gushed about him to E! News, saying the actor has “the most kind heart ever.”
Now that engagement rumors are swirling – Perry was recently spotted wearing a huge diamond ring on that finger – we’re taking a look back at everything we know about their relationship.
They’re planning a holiday vacation together.
“They are planning a vacation for the holidays,” a source told PEOPLE. “Orlando is very happy with Katy. They are not engaged yet, but are very serious.”
And when they’re not traveling together, they don’t let the distance affect their relationship.
“When Orlando filmed in China, they kept in touch via FaceTime. It was sort of a trial to see how they would feel after they spent weeks apart. It seems they are happier than ever,” the source shared. “Orlando loves how independent and strong Katy is. He is very proud of how much she got involved with the election.”
They spent Thanksgiving together … and wore matching onesies.
Perry documented the holiday gathering on her Instagram story, showing off her siblings’ and parents‘ Keith and Mary Hudson’s matching pajamas. In one video, Bloom cradled a baby and smiled for the camera while Perry said, “Hello Internet!”
A later clip featured Perry’s dad joking, “Look out, here comes a turkey for Thanksgiving, and right here he is,” before the camera swept over to a laughing Bloom.
They might be thinking about children already.
In August, a source told PEOPLE that Bloom wanted children with Perry.
The actor, 39, who shares 5-year-old son Flynn with ex-wife Miranda Kerr, “always gushes about Katy and thinks she is amazing in a million ways,” said the source. “He would love to settle down with Katy and have more kids. He hasn’t been this serious about a girl since Miranda.”
Perry has spent time with Bloom’s son, Flynn, and his mom, Sonia.
After enjoying a late-February Hawaiian getaway, the singer and Bloom flew to England, where she met his friends and family. Perry has also spent a significant amount of time with Flynn. She first met him in February before attending Robert Downey Jr.’s son’s birthday party with Flynn and Bloom.
“Orlando is very protective of his son,” a source told PEOPLE. “To introduce Flynn to Katy, she must mean [a lot] to him.”
They are really, really enjoying spending time together.
The two flew to Hawaii in February, going for long walks, taking helicopter rides and relaxing together. “Katy hasn’t looked happier. She always has the biggest smile when she is around Orlando,” a source told PEOPLE.
This summer, the two vacationed in Italy and France.
They’re hanging out with each other’s friends.
In addition to Perry accompanying Bloom and his son, Flynn, to a party in February, Perry has also met several of his friends, including Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman. And it goes both ways: “Orlando attends events and parties that are important to Katy,” a source said.
While their social circles have mixed, they give each other space to live their own lives.
“They’ve been getting along really well,” a source told PEOPLE in August. “Katy gives him space, and they’re both pretty independent. They are serious about each other and their relationship.”
They don’t shy away from PDA.
Whenever the two are spotted together, they look giggly and happy, according to inside sources. When they were first seen vibing at the Golden Globes in January, they spent an hour and a half chatting and even shared a drink.
The two hit up Coachella arm-in-arm.
They support each other.
Bloom attended Perry’s pre-Grammys celebration, The Creators Party presented by Spotify, in February. “It’s really sweet,” a source inside the event told PEOPLE. “The party is for music producers and artists only but Orlando showed up a bit later and they’re together.”
Bloom sat by Perry’s side as she was honored by Hillary Clinton at the UNICEF Snowflake Ball in November, and the two exchanged kisses all night.
“He was a previous award recipient last year, so he knows it better than I,” the singer told Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet. “And he’s been a UNICEF ambassador for over 10 years and I’ve only been a few years, so he’s kind of shown me some of the ropes.”
