Pop star Katy Perry and actor Orlando Bloom have been engaged since 2019, having been together on and off since 2016. Perry gushed when explaining how the Pirates of the Caribbean star asked her to be his wife, complete with champagne toast and helicopter ride:

"The box was in his pocket and he had written down everything he wanted to say in a note to divert -- he was gonna pull it out while I was reading it. And I'm like, 'No, I'm just reading the note. I know you're not doing anything...' My whole family was there, and all my friends... he did so well."

The First Time It Was Postponed

Unfortunately, the couple had to postpone their wedding from summer 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Perry and Bloom had initially planned on getting married in Japan while Perry was still pregnant with their first child. A source told People in March:

"It was all set for Japan with 150 guests. Katy was actually really excited about walking down the aisle pregnant. They were both so elated that all the wedding details were finally coming together, but they are hitting pause because of coronavirus."

2020 Is Too Much

As Perry's pregnancy has progressed in the hell that is 2020, she told The Mirror that her focus had shifted from wedding planning to just having her baby. She explained that she and Bloom had decided to postpone a second time in a new interview:

"You can’t plan anymore in 2020 because those plans are ­always canceled. We just want to ­deliver a healthy child. Everyone has to take life one week at a time right now. Obviously, that will happen in the future, but for now we just want to deliver a healthy child. And that’s what’s coming up right now!"

A Relationship Built To Last

Still, Perry and Bloom don't seem to be too rushed to head down the aisle. Perry explained in an interview with Kyle and Jackie O last year that since they had both been married before (her to Russell Brand, him to Miranda Kerr), they didn't want to make the same mistakes.

"It's important for us to do the work before we take this really big next step. Because we were both married before, and it's not the same in your thirties.

We're really doing the hard work and laying a beautiful foundation before we start to build a massive house...figuratively, emotionally, you know."
