A third added: ‘Aaaaah omg, queeeen 😭😭💕💕👑👑 Congratulations 🎊🎉I wish you so much luck and love 💕 @orlandobloom Keep making her smiling and happy, dude 😂💕 Love you 💕’.

Katy and Orlando first started dating after the 73rd Golden Globe Awards back in January 2016. They split in 2017 but reunited in April last year and it’s been pretty clear the couple have serious feelings for each other.

Just a few days ago in an interview with Paper Magazine, Katy didn’t rule out tying the knot to Orlando as she addressed her previous marriages.

She said: ‘I’m very pragmatic and logistical and I am less fantastical about things… I mean, I was married when I was 25…

‘I’m 34. It was almost 10 years ago. I was like, ‘One person for the rest of my life,’ and I’m not so sure that that idea is for me. I’m just such a different person than I was.’

Katy was also previously married to Russel Brand and described it as an ‘exciting journey’ in an old interview with W Magazine.

Katy’s mum Mary broke the news that her daughter was engaged with a series of adorable pictures from the special occasion.

Orlando popped the question on the most romantic day of the year and proud mum Mary couldn’t help but share the news.

She wrote: ‘Look who got engaged on Valentines Day!!’ and shared several pictures of Katy’s gorgeous ring and the beautiful setting.

A second post with the same caption shows Katy and Orlando in a romantic embrace stood in front of a heart-shaped arch made from red roses.
