Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are two stars so big they're household names. The two have both had very public romances in the past. But many didn't even know they were together - let alone getting serious!
Regardless of the public knowledge of the relationship, it seems the pair are certainly on the right track. Perry announced on Instagram yesterday that the couple were making it official, and showed off her gorgeous (and unique) engagement ring. The story of Bloom's proposal is super romantic - not least because he popped the question on the most romantic date of all, Valentine's Day.
At first, the couple were a little shady about the status of their relationship, but they have now officially confirmed wedding bells. And if the proposal and ring are anything to go by, the Bloom-Perry wedding will not be one to miss!
