Orlando Bloom has admitted that there are ‘fireworks’ in his romance in Katy Perry that occasionally leave them wondering: ‘How do we do this?’

However the 47-year-old heartthrob, who has been involved with Katy since 2016, added that he ‘wouldn’t change it for anything.’

He bared the tensions in their relationship, explaining that she ‘demands that I evolve’ and he does ‘the same for her.’

Although sparks fly between them as a result of their expectations, ‘it also makes for a lot of fun and a lot of growth,’ said Orlando.

The Lord Of The Rings star talked about how he first ‘fell in love’ with Katy on the podcast What Now? With Trevor Noah.

Katy and Orlando got engaged in 2019, and the following year they welcomed their daughter Daisy Dove Bloom, who will turn four in August. 

‘One of the things that I fell in love with with Katy was like, I didn’t really – she hates when I say this, so I have to word it carefully – but her music was everywhere, right?’ Orlando recalled on Trevor’s podcast. 

‘When I came up, it was just on every radio station, but I wasn’t conscious of – like, it wasn’t what I was listening to,’ he admitted.

‘But I fell in love with Katheryn, this girl from Santa Barbara – and by the way, parents, pastors, living on food stamps. We’re not talking glamorous, Montecito,’ he noted.

Katy has spoken candidly about growing up in a poor family, falling back on food banks and at times even busking when she was a teenage girl.

Orlando had a boarding school upbringing in England before landing his star-making role in The Lord Of The Rings when he was two days out of drama school.

He reflected that he and Katy ‘both meet each other with understanding where we came from, what we worked to do, what we had to do to get to where we got to.’

Orlando explained that the Firework hitmaker ‘definitely demands that I evolve, right? And I feel I do the same for her. And that makes for fireworks, pardon the pun, but it also makes for a lot of fun and a lot of growth.’

He added: ‘And, you know, I wouldn’t change it for anything, even when sometimes it feels like: “How do we do this?” Because we’ve got these two giant careers and lives and hers is even, you know, there’s even – it’s like a universe sometimes.’

Orlando has in the past been remarkably frank about his relationship, including when Daisy was an infant and he told the Guardian that he and Katy were having ‘not enough’ sex, before clarifying: ‘We just had a baby, though.’

Last year he noted that he and Katy work in ‘two very different pools’ of the entertainment industry, which can lead to difficulties between them.

‘Her pool is not a pool that I necessarily understand, and I think my pool is not a pool that she necessarily understands,’ he told Flaunt.

‘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 at the time that we did, and there’s definitely never a dull moment,’ shared Orlando.
