Orlando Bloom Biography
Orlando Bloom was born on 13 January 1977 in Canterbury. Kent was named Orlando Jonathan Blanchard Bloom after the 16th-century English composer Orlando Gibbons. His father is Colin Stone and his mother Sonia Constance Josephine (née Copeland).
Orlando did not really have a father figure for most of his upbringing. His dad and mom never married. Bloom had thought that Harry Saul Bloom (his mother’s husband), who died when he was 4 years old, was his father. He learned the truth when he turned 13. It was after the death of his stepfather that his biological father Stone stepped in as his legal guardian. Bloom has an older sister named Samantha Bloom
Young Bloom was pushed to acting by his mother after she discovered that he suffered from dyslexia. As he grew older, he became increasingly passionate about acting. After spending two seasons at the National Youth Theatre, Orlando Bloom received a scholarship to study at the British American Drama Academy. By the mid-1990s he had become a professional actor and it was not long before he made his big breakthrough with the role of Legolas in the film trilogy The Lord of the Rings.

His Relationship With Katy Perry
Orlando Bloom has had the privilege of having romantic relationships with some of the most gorgeous women in the entertainment industry. However, one of his relationships that attracted a lot of media attention is with American pop star Katy Perry. Their date began in January 2016 right after the 73rd Golden Globe Awards ceremony.
Their first PDA together came at the Weinstein Company/Netflix Golden Globes after the party in the Sunset Tower, where they obviously flirted and even danced with each other. In the following months, the two performed together in public and soon became known as Perrybloom. In February 2016, they attended Adele’s concert together and Coachella’s in April. All this time they never officially confirmed their relationship.
While the world waited eagerly for their first joint appearance on the red carpet, they came separately to the Met Gala. However, they couldn’t hide their ongoing relationship for long, as Perry went to her Gram page for the first time to post photos of her with Bloom. Their relationship broke up on the internet in August 2016 when photos of her holiday in Italy appeared online. In one of the photos, Bloom was stark naked while riding a paddleboard with his girlfriend Perry.
And then came Halloween 2016, when she dressed up as Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton and couldn’t help but love the world more. Towards the end of 2016, her paradise seemed to be plagued by unrest when the first rumor of their separation hit the news, but only rumors proved to be true until her representatives released statements in March 2017 confirming that the couple had indeed separated. Nonetheless, Bloom was still sighted with Pery on many occasions.
Rumors that they were trying to patch things up were officially confirmed in February when a source referring to The Sun confirmed that they were getting back together. Perry himself confirmed the news of their reunion with Bloom in an interview with ET on April 26, 2018.
Orlando Bloom’s Wife and Son
Before Bloom met Perry and subsequently fell in love with him, he was married to Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr. They had started dating in late 2007 and a few years later, in mid-2010, they announced that they were engaged. They were married in July 2010, and in January 2011 Kerr gave birth to her son in Los Angeles. He was named Flynn Christopher Bloom.
Two years after the birth of their son in October 2013, the couple announced their separation and their intention to divorce. They completed their divorce by the end of 2013. Unconfirmed sources have claimed that Bloom’s drinking problem was part of what brought their marriage to an abrupt end. While Bloom apparently had his heart mended by Perry. Kerr found love in the eyes of Snapchat billionaire and founder of Snapchat, Evan Spiegel. They were married in 2015.
