It sounds like something straight out of a romantic comedy! Katy Perry divulged details about how Orlando Bloom proposed and we feel like we’ve seen something like it on The Bachelor before. Kudos to the actor for taking notes on how to create an over-the-top engagement story. The whole situation sounds extremely romantic with a few funny twists along the way.
So, what made this such a storybook proposal? Let’s start with the fact that it happened on the most romantic day of the year. “It was Valentine’s Day … I thought we were going to go see some art after dinner, but instead, we pulled up to a helicopter,” the 34-year-old dished to Jimmy Kimmel.
While that seems picture-perfect, the pop star did mention there were a few mishaps along the way. She recalled that her actor beau gave her a heartfelt note to read (a.k.a. distract her with) while he pulled the ring out of his coat pocket. Unfortunately, the box was a bit too big and got stuck.
The 42-year-old ended up ripping his coat pocket to get the ring out and knocked over a bottle of champagne in the process. Despite a couple of bumps, the flight ended with the two being engaged. The American Idol judge admitted that she “voiced” her opinion about her unusual ring but the proposal was all him.
The Pirates of the Caribbean actor pulled out all the stops for his lady love. “We did land and it was like James Bond, everybody had an earpiece. And then, we [went] downstairs … and my whole family was there and all my friends. He did so well,” the “Teenage Dream” artist gushed.
Their story is too sweet and we can’t wait for details about the wedding!
