And, in another exciting news, ever since the engagement, Perry and Bloom have been officially living together in a Perry’s palatial residence in Los Angeles. "They moved in together right after they got engaged," the source reveals. "She had been doing work to her new house for several months and it was finished right at the time they got engaged. It worked out perfectly and they are loving this time in their lives."
With the couple sharing a residence, Bloom his former home up for grabs. The Pirates of the Caribbean performer is selling his Beverly Hills house for $8.999 million. Meanwhile, Perry recently sold her Hollywood Hills mansion for $9.4 million.

Opening up about the proposal on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the singer revealed that he popped the question during a surprise helicopter ride. “It was very sweet”, Perry said. “We went to dinner and I thought we were going to go see some art after dinner but we pulled up to a helicopter.”
Awww… now, that’s sweet! However, not every aspect of the proposal turned out as planned.
“The funny part is we had champagne in the helicopter and the [ring] box was in his pocket and he had written down everything he wanted to say on a note,” she revealed, explaining that the note was meant to divert her attention as he pulled out the ring.
“So I’m reading [the note] but I’m hearing the champagne is broken and the bottle’s everywhere … he’s pulling out this box that’s too big for his coat pocket, rips his coat pocket and his elbow goes into the champagne.”
Katy Perry's engagement ring from Orlando Bloom might have cost $5 Million.
Their friends and family are happy for them too.
