As both partners are well-known celebrities, the public has been privy to both the ups and the downs of the years-long relationship and engagement.


During an interview with Flaunt Magazine, Orlando, 46, discussed the complicated nature of his relationship with Katy, 38, and what has helped them maintain its success.

The Lord of the Rings actor would describe his fiancée as both his “baby mama” and “life partner.”

Orlando believes their relationship has been a success due to understanding each other’s “need for evolution.”

Speaking with Flaunt, the 46-year-old admitted: “Sometimes things are really, really, really, challenging. I won’t lie.

“We definitely battle with our emotions and creativity, [but] I think we’re both aware of how blessed we are to have uniquely connected in the way that we did.”

The Pirates of the Caribbean star also confessed: “There’s definitely never a dull moment,” when questioned further about his relationship with the pop star.

As previously mentioned, Katy and Orlando have been together since 2016.

The couple briefly took some time apart in 2017 before ultimately getting engaged on Valentine’s Day in 2019.

And although they haven’t tied the knot yet, the partners did welcome a child, Daisy Dove Bloom, in August 2020.

In an online pop culture thread, fans had a lot to say about how Orlando spoke about his future wife.

One user said: “If a man said this about me, there would 1000% be a fight.”

Another person commented: “I really side-eye celebrities who make these kinds of comments. Certainly, marriage isn’t always easy, but this is such a weird thing to say so publicly.”

A third commenter wrote: “On the one hand, it’s probably for the best for them not to get married just yet if their relationship is so very challenging … but then they also have a child together which is a massive commitment. Idk, they seem like a messy split waiting to happen.”

Others chimed in, stating “the third very seems personal,” and “that’s a lot of very.”


Last year, Katy revealed that she and Orlando attend “couples therapy” due to struggling with “resentment issues.”

The Teenage Dream artist made the admission while guesting on the Dear Chelsea podcast, hosted by comedian Chelsea Handler, 48.

In the episode, Chelsea stopped by Katy’s recording studio to talk about “elusive maternal instinct, being forced to hug other people, and the practical use of ‘medicinal herbs.’”

The 38-year-old opened up about her relationship with the Carnival Row actor, stating: “Your partners usually see your best and your worst sides because they are there to be your mirrors.”

She then revealed: “Orlando and I do couple’s therapy,” adding, “we love it because it just keeps us in tune.”

Katy explained how resentment can get in the way when both people in the relationship are working hard.

“God bless successful people in the spotlight,” the Firework singer continued.

She also admitted that the pair have found much success in attending couples therapy together.

Katy said that they both went to a retreat and when she and Orlando returned home she wanted to break up with him because it became boring because Orlando wasn’t “leaning into her bulls**t.”

“I had the worst year of my life then, not just because of relationships, but my life was shifting in general,” she explained.

A year later she attended the retreat – The Hoffman Process – where they have no phones and work with others to build relationships.

“It’s a place you go to work on those triggers that are bothering you and… rewire the neuro pathways in your mind and you get to discover why you have these patterns or habits and where they are coming from.”

“Basically, they came from mom or dad. So, if you’re yelling, who yelled at you? It’s a learned thing,” she said.

Katy said that it “profoundly changed her life” and is the number one thing she always recommends for someone who is stuck in life.


Katy sparked speculation that she split from Orlando after the singer was shown with her left hand free from jewelry during episodes of American Idol.

In her social media photos promoting the televised singing competition, Katy was captured without her engagement ring as well.

During the pre-taped American Idol episodes, the California Gurls singer was shown still wearing the ring – but during the live shows, the ring was absent from her finger.

Katy fueled the fan rumors of a split after they spotted more clues in photos of the Dark Horse artist.

The Play performer showed up at the 2022 Met Gala in a sheer, black and white mini dress that was covered with lace and tulle while also featuring a train in the back.

She completed the look with clear heels, sheers gloves, and a black head wrap that she later took off.

And while the singer looked stunning on the red carpet fans couldn’t help but notice that her left hand was missing some expected jewelry.

Though she wore a ring on that finger, it was not her $5million pink engagement ring that led many fans to believe that she and Orlando have broken up.


Orlando set the record straight on their break-up speculation with a new video.

Taking to Instagram, the 46-year-old shared a short clip that appears to put a dead-end to any rumors about him and Katy going their separate ways.

The video showed the I Kissed A Girl hitmaker smiling and dancing while wearing a colorful party outfit and head-to-toe fairy lights.

She smiled as she moved to the music and looked back lovingly at Orlando.

Her fiancé captioned the video, “magical mamma,” adding a heart and a fire emoji, to which she commented “lol.”

The pair have been engaged since 2019, but their wedding date was pushed back due to the pandemic.

Katy previously posted a photo of them together holding up her stunning ruby and diamond engagement ring with the caption, “In full bloom.”


As mentioned, Katy first met Orlando in 2016 at the Golden Globes after-party.

They dated for a year before calling it quits in March 2017, according to their reps.

A few months later, they were seen at an Ed Sheeran concert together and seemed to be giving their relationship another try.

By 2018, Katy and Orlando were back on after the singer confirmed it on an episode of American Idol.

By Valentine’s Day 2019, they were engaged.
