Hollywood actor Orlando Bloom and Victoria's Secret lingerie model Miranda Kerr are engaged to be married, says the actor's spokesperson.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star, 32, quietly began dating the Australian brunette, 26, in 2007. They were reported to have briefly separated for a time in 2008 before reconciling.
That same year, Bloom flew to her hometown Sydney, Australia, to meet her parents. He said that with their busy schedules, it hasn't always been easy to be together, reports dailymail.co.uk.
"Miranda and I spend so much time apart, she's working hard, I'm working hard, so we have to grab time together whenever we can," he said in 2009. "A weekend here, a weekend there. We are just enjoying our time together now."
After marriage, Miranda would prefer to have a quiet family life. "I've always wanted kids, so someday, eventually, yes, it will happen. My ideal situation would be to live on a farm in a solar-powered house with a hammock and a vegetable patch. When this is all over, that's where I'll be," she said.
Bloom, who previously dated Superman Returns actress Kate Bosworth, reportedly proposed twice before, but the model was said to be reluctant to make the union official.
