A teenage dream! Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom’s high-profile relationship, which started in January 2016, has included a dance-off, a nude paddleboarding session, a meeting with the pope and just about everything in between.

Both social media announcements noted that “all casting and filming” for the roles “were contracted and completed before the SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes and are compliant with SAG-AFTRA rules and conditions.” While the SAG-AFTRA strike is currently ongoing, the WGA ended their nearly 5-month strike on September 26 after reaching a deal with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers.

The special will mark the couple’s second on screen appearance together as they previously starred as future versions of themselves in a 2021 ad titled “Transmissions from the Future.” The ad helped raise awareness for the For the People Act, which aimed at expanding voter rights across the United States, among other things.

The duo — who share daughter Daisy Dove, 3 — got engaged in February 2019 after nearly three years of dating. The following March, Perry announced that she was expecting her first child with the British native in the music video for her song “Never Worn White.” They welcomed their daughter in August 2020. (Bloom also shares son Flynn, 12, with his ex-wife, Miranda Kerr.)

While Perry and Bloom are “not taking any steps to prevent kids,” a source exclusively told Us Weekly in October 2022 that “they’re not actively trying for another one,” as Perry “doesn’t want to walk down [the] aisle pregnant.”

On Wednesday, Perry and Bloom officially began their non-jury real estate trial against Carl Westcott, who claimed he sold them their $15 million mansion under the influence of painkillers. Though Westcott, 84, changed his mind on the transaction upon realizing his intoxication, the couple sent him a letter stating they were “not willing to walk away” from the sale.
