London: 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.
