In what is surely devastating news for both sexes, hottie Victoria’s Secret Angel Miranda Kerr is getting hitched to Lord of the Rings actor Orlando Bloom. While engagement rumors have long dogged the couple, sadly, this time it’s for real.
Representatives for the extremely attractive couple have confirmed that the couple is indeed engaged. According to People magazine, “It's (finally!) official – Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr are engaged.” The couple began dating in late 2007 and engagement rumors started circulating some six months later. The couple had already reacted coyly to the rumor, but now those rumors can be laid to rest.
Kerr’s family is reportedly over the moon with news of the engagement. A rep for the Kerr family told People, “The entire Kerr family is thrilled with the news. It is a very exciting time for both of them." This will be the both Kerr and Bloom's first marriage, though possibly not Bloom’s first engagement. It was rumored Bloom was engaged to actress Kate Bosworth.
Aside from both having the attractive gene, the two both practice Nichiren Buddhism and are members of Soka Gakkai International, which believes "we have a responsibility to bring peace and harmony to our lives and the world." The practice involves chanting every morning and night for 20 minutes, yoga, and mediation.
It sounds like they were meant to be!
