When Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom first met at a benefit for the Children’s Defense Fund in April 2013, both of them were in other relationships.
At the time Perry was two years out from her divorce from Russell Brand and dating fellow singer, John Mayer. Bloom, on the other hand, was still married to former Victoria’s Secret model, Miranda Kerr, with whom he shares a nine-year-old son.
Less than seven years later, the pair would be engaged and expecting their first child together. This is how it all happened.

How did they meet?
It was a Golden Globes after-party that would officially bring them back together. More specifically, a burger from US fast-food chain, In-and-Out. Sources from the night reported there was a dance-off and a lot of flirting and there was photographic evidence to prove it.
Later, Perry would tell Jimmy Kimmel this was where their relationship started.
“We bonded over an In-N-Out burger about three years [ago] at the Golden Globes. He stole one off of my table,” she said in 2019.
“He took it, and I was like, ‘Wait! Who — oh, you’re so hot. Fine, take it!’ And then I saw him at a party, and I was like, ‘How are those onions resting on your molars?’ He’s like, ‘I like you’.”
