Why Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom Aren't Getting Married Any Time Soon
The couple is currently "laying the foundation" for their marriage.
When asked during a new interview with KIIS 1065's The Kyle & Jackie O Show whether she's going to wed this year or have a long engagement, the "Never Really Over" singer responded that she and the actor are first taking important steps in their relationship before they walk down the aisle.
"I think we're doing really great, and we're really doing the hard work and laying a beautiful foundation before we start to build a monster house, metaphorically," Perry, 34, said.
After being asked by cohost Kyle Sandilands to clarify what she meant by "monster house," Perry said, "I'm saying it more figuratively."
"I'm saying it, like, emotionally," she continued. "It's important for us to really do the work before we go and take this really big next step because we were both married before, and it's not the same in your 30s, as you know."
Bloom, 42, was previously married to model Miranda Kerr, 35, whom he wed in an intimate ceremony in July 2010 just one month after their engagement was confirmed. Perry similarly exchanged vows with ex-husband Russell Brand, 43, in a private but extravagant ceremony in India in 2010 less than 10 months after getting engaged.
Bloom and Perry-who have been dating on-and-off since 2016-got engaged on Valentine's Day earlier this year.
