Will wedding bells be ringing soon for Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry? While there have been numerous stories and speculations about a Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom engagement — the latest update is that a proposal is on its way.
After a little more than seven months of dating, the 39-year-old "Lord of the Rings" actor has shared that he is hoping to get married to his pop star girlfriend very soon. A source close to the couple revealed to People that the pair has been talking about marriage and kids. "They are in love and happier than ever. [Orlando] would like to get engaged to [Katy] before the year is up."

The 39-year-old actor and the pop star have been linked ever since their fateful night at the Golden Globes after party in January 2016, where they were spotted cozying up together. Since then, it's been romantic trips to Cannes, Hawaii, Hillary Clinton rallies, and most recently (and importantly?) — a nude paddleboarding trip around Sardinia (you probably remember the pretty memorable package that Bloom paraded around the open seas...).

While 39-year-old Bloom's most recent images didn't break the internet as readily as Kim K's, the actor was definitely in "full bloom" if you know what we're saying — with his leading lady sitting in front of him on the paddleboard like it was NBD. But we digress. The real point of the story is that the two are pretty head-over-heels for each other and a wedding may finally be on the horizon. "He would love to settle down with Katy and have more kids. He hasn't been this serious about a girl since Miranda," the source shared with the magazine, referencing his ex-wife, Miranda Kerr.
The couple has been plagued with breakup rumors in the past (after the Pirates of the Caribbean star was spotted with Selena Gomez in Las Vegas). This minor setback seems to be just a blip on their relationship radar, as the two have been seen getting closer than ever in recent months.
As for Perry's thoughts on the proposal matter? The star, 31, appears to be pumping the breaks a bit more than her British BF. "She's not going to rashly make a huge commitment like marriage again unless she thinks it's absolutely right," a friend close to the singer shared. Both have been married before: Bloom ended his marriage to Kerr (with whom he has a five-year-old son), and the "Dark Horse" singer divorced from her ex, Russell Brand, after just a year of marriage in 2011, according to The Daily Mail.

Fast-forward to present day — she's pretty smitten with her new man — birthday suit and all. "They've been getting along really well. Katy gives [Bloom] space, and they're both pretty independent. They are serious about each other and their relationship." Sounds like a marriage match made in heaven. Okay Orlando — what are you waiting for? Time to buy that ring and propose (fully clothed, we hope).
