Kate Hudson, Gwen Stefani & More Congratulate Katy Perry & Orlando Bloom on Their Engagement
Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom got engaged on Valentine's Day, and their friends are over the moon about the good news
Shortly after the pair confirmed the happy news by posting matching photos of themselves snuggling up together as Perry, 34, showed off her unique flower-shaped diamond ring, the congratulatory messages began pouring in.
In response to Perry’s special Valentine’s Day post, Grammy-winning hitmaker Zedd exclaimed, “YASSSSSSSSSS QUEEN!” The pair recently collaborated on track “365” with Perry, which was released just hours before the singer’s engagement.
“Ahhhh!!!! Yeah baby! So happy for you both” added Kate Hudson, including multiple red heart emojis. The star went on to suggest that the two lovebirds plan on having a “destination wedding” to celebrate their upcoming nuptials.
Gwen Stefani focused on Perry’s new rock, exclaiming, “OMG 😮 that ring congrats ❤️”
Singer Dua Lipa also congratulated the happy couple, writing, “Mum & Dad !!!!!”
“Congratulations!!! So happy for you guys,” Zoe Saldana wrote.
Meanwhile, Jessie J commented with a red heart emoji, while singer Tinashe wrote, “Wow,” adding a heart-eyed emoji.
Bloom, 42, also got his own fair share of congratulatory messages!
“I’m so happy for you bloomers,” wrote Perry’s close pal Derek Blasberg, while Hudson and actress Liv Tyler replied with her own string of red heart emojis.
Seemingly indicating that she knew the two lovebirds were planning something, rock legend Courtney Love wrote, “So it did work out I see !”
“Hope we will be neighbors next year ! Congratulations,” she continued, adding a festive party hat emoji.
British model Poppy Delevingne went on to add her own sweet message, sending a trio of heart emojis.
In addition to Perry and Bloom’s sweet matching posts, the singer’s mother also shared, then later deleted a few intimate snaps from the couple’s engagement party on her Facebook page, captioning them, “Look who got engaged on Valentines Day!!”
Hours earlier, seemingly teasing the big day to come, Bloom shared a heartwarming quote about love on his Instagram.
“A shallow person will have only shallow relationships. Real love is not one person clinging to another , it can only be fostered between two strong people secure in their individuality. Antoine de Saint- Exupery, author of The Little Prince wrote in a work called Wind, Sand and Stars, ‘Love is not two people gazing at each other, but two people looking ahead together in the same direction.”
“Wisdom for Modern Life by Daisaku Ikeda,” he wrote. “February 14, 2019 ❤️got nothin but love for ya’ll ❤️.”
Earlier in the day, Perry also shared a sweet shot of Bloom taking a nap beside their two dogs.
“Will u be my teenage dream?” she wrote alongside the snap, adding a left shark emoji, as she referenced one of her biggest hits.
The couple’s love story dates back to January 2016, when they were spotted acting flirty at a Golden Globes afterparty. PEOPLE then confirmed the “Firework” singer and Lord of the Rings alum were dating, and by February they had introduced one another to friends, as well as Bloom’s 8-year-old son Flynn with ex Miranda Kerr.
Perry and Bloom’s first shot at romance lasted about a year, before they announced their split in February 2017.
The couple went on to reunite the following year, and PEOPLE confirmed the pair were once again dating exclusively last April, when Perry and Bloom visited the Vatican to meet the Pope.
A source told PEOPLE that their holiday vacation rounds out “a very special year for Orlando and Katy,” adding that “they are doing incredibly well. They seem beyond happy and very serious.”
