Katy Perry Reveals Fiancé Orlando Bloom Was The "Anchor" Who Was By Her Side As She Fought Depression After Her Divorce

Katy Perry is pregnant and cannot contain her excitement to start a family with Bloom.

Some relationships may be bad and toxic. It might take a toll on us emotionally and mentally, despite ending it and moving on. In such tough times, having someone who deeply cares for you and your wellbeing is a blessing. Katy Perry was fortunate to have found such a person in actor Orlando Bloom. He helped her heal from the scars of her past relationship and showed her what love really is. 

The Fireworks singer was previously married to the British comedian, Russell Brand. However, their marriage was short-lived. Perry was forced to say goodbye to her marriage when the comedian ended their relationship abruptly with a text. Though they settled the divorce in July 2012, Perry was deeply affected by the events that took place.



 

Speaking to Vogue India, she said 2017-18 was a tough phase in her life. "I became depressed and I did not want to get out of bed. In the past, I had been able to overcome it, but this time something happened that made me fall down too many flights of stairs. I had to really go on a mental health journey," stated the singer. She struggled with her mental health and had to go through a long bout of therapy to recover. However, it was not just the therapy but also Orlando Bloom who helped restore her broken spirits. 



 

She added, "I’ve gone to therapy, been through the Hoffman Process, done plant medicine... And I have a partner who is also all about finding a balance—Orlando, who is on a spiritual journey of his own. He’s an anchor who holds me down, and he’s very real," according to Vogue. The singer continued, "Orlando is like a sage. When we first met, he said we would pull the poison out of each other, and we really do. It’s exhausting, but we really hold each other accountable. I’ve never had a partner who was willing to go on an emotional and spiritual journey like Orlando. It’s challenging, because you’re facing all the things you don’t like about yourself. It’s like a never-ending cleanse.”

Bloom and Perry met each other in 2016, according to Elle. However, within 10 months of dating, the couple broke up. But sources next to the 35-year-old singer said they had a great friendship despite the breakup. "Katy pulled the plug. It was a few events that happened over the past few months. They both still love each other very much, though, and getting back together could happen once they have some space," said the source to Elle.

As expected, within months they got back together. "They do seem very happy together though. Orlando always had the nicest things to say about Katy. He loves spending time with her,” said a source to People, according to Elle. The two love birds vacationed together and Perry publicly admitted she was not single anymore.



 

Taking everyone by surprise, the singer announced her engagement to the actor on 15 February 2019. The delighted singer shared a snap of her with her love and showed off her beautiful engagement ring. Speaking to a Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp, Perry recalled the special day. She said, "It was Valentine’s Day and I had to work that day. I got on a helicopter and he asked me to marry him, and then we landed on this building and then went downstairs and my family and friends were there and the most flowers you’ve ever seen. It’s like when Kanye does that for Kim, you’re like, ‘Oh my God!' And I was like, ‘Oh my God!'” according to Elle.



 

While the couple looks forward to their life together, Perry confirmed she was not in a rush to get married. Meanwhile, on 5 March 2020, the singer shocked the world by announcing her pregnancy through her music video. The video showed the singer cradling her pregnant stomach. She later took to social media to confirm the news. “I’m excited, we’re excited and happy. It’s probably the longest secret I’ve ever had to keep. I thought I would tell you guys in the best way through a piece of music," tweeted the singer, according to Elle. 

Perry had a bad experience in the past but she found Mr. Right in Bloom.
