After three years of going off-and-on on the dating front, PerryBloom is finally ready to tie the knot. Speaking on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Katy spilled the juice on how her eye candy of a man popped the question. He asked her to marry him on a helicopter and like that wasn’t cute enough, he chose Valentine’s Day to do it. So romantic!

The couple had gone out for dinner the day he proposed. Instead of going along with their plans of going to see some arts, Bloom took her to a helicopter and proposed. He had the ring in his pocket with a note containing his well-planned speech for the special occasion. To wrap up the fairy tale, Katy was surprised when she landed to meet their families and friends who were waiting to congratulate the newly-engaged couple. Her prince charming does have the recipe for a love story.

Despite previous speculations, Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry want to raise a family together and will give top priority to this decision. They are, however, not in a hurry to tie the knot but are still having the time of their young lives as a happy couple. After their official wedding, Katy would assume the role of a stepmother to Orlando’s son, Flynn Christopher Bloom, from a previous marriage which ended in divorce.
