Orlando Bloom is reportedly thinking about popping the question to his girlfriend Katy Perry as he'd like to take their relationship to the next level.

The couple have been stronger than ever since they rekindled their relationship at the beginning of this year following their brief split in 2017, and now it looks like the 41-year-old actor is keen to take things to the next level as he's been telling his friends that he would love to walk down the aisle with the 'Roar' hitmaker. 

A source told People.com: "Orlando doesn't have a ring yet but has been talking about the future. Everyone would be excited if they got engaged. Katy is wonderful! He always said he would absolutely get married again, and it seems Katy could be it. They both seem very happy."

This isn't the first time the pair have tied the knot though as Katy was wed to comedian Russell Brand from 2010 until 2012 while Orlando was married to Miranda Kerr, with whom he has seven-year-old son Flynn, from 2010 until 2013.

However, despite their previous failed marriages, the pair are still reportedly keen to solidify their relatively private relationship by becoming husband and wife. 

The couple first started dating in 2016 but their busy work schedules put too much pressure on them and they ended up calling it quits in February 2017. 

However, at the beginning of this year, they started hanging out more and confirmed they were back together and giving things another go in April. 

An insider explained: "This has been an amazing year for the relationship. It's like they needed to split and get back together again to get to this point."

Earlier this year, the couple made their red carpet debut together but, although they're happy for people to know they're together, Katy hates being asked about their relationship because it's only "one part" of her life. 

She said recently: "It's OK to mention him. I don't want it to be a headline of the story, because it takes away from the purpose. Also, it's extremely misogynistic. Of course, I love my relationship, but that is one part of me, and I don't want any part of what I do to be diminished."
