Turns Out Orlando Bloom's Proposal To Katy Perry Involved A Helicopter

Katy Perry - Jimmy Kimmel Live!

It's a wonderful time for Katy Perry right now. The pop singer and American Idol judge is currently celebrating her Valentine Day's engagement to Orlando Bloom, and she's completely in a state of bliss. And while we've heard a few details about the celebrity betrothal, Perry wasn't afraid to share some more info during her recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Specifically, the musician revealed that a helicopter was involved in the declaration of love. Here's how Katy described it.

It was Valentine's Day… I thought we were going to go see some art after dinner, but instead we pulled up to a helicopter.

During the talk show clip, Katy Perry began the interview by explaining how she and her soon-to-be hubby had their meet-cute moment. It involved a stolen In-N-Out burger. Shortly thereafter, Perry started talking about the engagement itself, which she called "very sweet." The holiday proposal started when Perry and Orlando Bloom went to get some dinner, and the musician thought they were going to see some art together. Suffice to say, that's wasn't the case. Instead, the celebrity couple found themselves inside a helicopter. And inside the said helicopter, the actor finally asked the big question -- with the help of a little bit of champagne.

But that wasn't the half of it. As Katy Perry explained later in the clip, the engagement didn't merely involve a scenic helicopter ride. When they landed the plane, they were greeted by Perry's family and friends, who were on hand to wish the celebrity well. Orlando Bloom clearly put a lot of thought into the grand proposal, and it's exciting to know that it was such a hit. Here's how Perry put it.

We landed on a rooftop [in Los Angeles] and my whole family was there, and all my friends. He did so well.

When it comes to your proposal, you wanna make it count. And sure enough, Orlando Bloom went all-out in his declaration of love for Katy Perry. The celebrities haven't had the smoothest road in their relationship. They broke apart two years ago, and it wasn't clear if they were going to get back together again. But they've been dating in private for roughly a year now, and this engagement shows their fans that they're finally ready to commit. Congratulations to the happy couple!

Bbeyond her recent engagement, Katy Perry is excited to return to TV screens across the country with the newest season of American Idol, which is scheduled to premiere on March 3rd. Clearly, she has a lot to be thankful for.
