Katy Perry has found her James Bond!
In celebration of Orlando Bloom‘s 43rd birthday on Monday, the Dark Horse singer shared a heartfelt post on Instagram about her “incredibly good looking” fiancé.
“Many people wonder how the pyramids were actually built… but me, I am in constant awe and wonder of how such a loving/kind/compassionate/supportive/talented/deeply spiritual/did I mention incredibly good looking/James Bond of a human being can actually exist in the flesh!” Perry wrote, sharing a series of photos of the Pirates of the Caribbean actor standing in front of The Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt.
“There’s a reason why all animals and children run straight into his arms… It’s his heart, so pure,” the Grammy-nominated artist, 35, added. “I love you Orlando Jonathan Blanchard Copeland Bloom. Happiest 43rd year. ♥️?♠️.”
The Carnival Row actor responded to his lady love’s post with a sweet message of his own. “Ready to climb all them pyramids and mountains with you ❤️,” he wrote.
Earlier in the day, Bloom enjoyed a chilly bike ride around Prague, Czech Republic and was joined by a group of friends for the cold outing. “it was 2 degrees” he told his followers on his Instagram Story.
“my pre bday gift to self was a cycle on a perfect Praha winters day,” he wrote over a selfie video that showed him riding along on his bike.
After completing the ride, Bloom was treated with a sweet treat that was topped with sparkler candles. “Finished with a full belly and trying to figure out if ur supposed to blow these out lol,” he wrote, adding a birthday cake emoji.
The actor is a big fan of cycling, often sharing his wheeled adventures with his followers on Instagram, as well as sweet posts with Perry. The couple were first romantically linked in January 2016, and have had an on-off relationship that eventually led to their engagement in February 2019.
In her recent cover with Vogue India, Perry opened up about their relationship and how her fiancé has helped her with her struggle with mental health.
“I have a partner who is also all about finding a balance — Orlando, who is on a spiritual journey of his own,” Perry told the magazine. “He’s an anchor who holds me down, and he’s very real.”
“He’s not the No. 1 fan of Katy Perry, but he’s the No. 1 fan of Katheryn Hudson,” she added, referencing her onstage persona and her birth name.
Perry described the way she and Bloom — who she called “a sage” — help each other on their spiritual journeys, supporting each other while also calling out any emotional pitfalls along the way.
“When we first met, he said we would pull the poison out of each other, and we really do,” she said. “It’s exhausting, but we really hold each other accountable.”
The “Harleys in Hawaii” singer also explained how her bond with Bloom is unlike any of her previous flames, which included ex-husband Russell Brand, whom she married in 2010 during a Northern India ceremony.
“I’ve never had a partner who was willing to go on an emotional and spiritual journey like Orlando,” she said, adding that love, to her, is defined by “partnership, friendship, truth and being an absolute mirror to someone.”
