Love was literally in the air for Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom when they got engaged on a helicopter on Valentine’s Day this year, but Katy has recently revealed that the mid-flight proposal went hilariously wrong.
Katy revealed in a recent interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live that Orlando surprised her with a flight above Los Angeles but the big moment didn’t quite go to plan with ripped jackets, spilt champagne and general klutziness from the Lord of the Rings star.
Side note: it’s kind of nice to know that even the very hot and very famous can kind of wilt under the pressure of a big moment.
“We went to dinner and I thought we were going to go and see some art after dinner,” Perry said.
“But we pulled up to a helicopter.”
“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 in a note, to divert, right? He’s gonna pull it out while I’m reading it.
So I’m reading it, but I’m hearing the champagne is, like, broken. The bottle’s everywhere, and I’m still looking at the note, because 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.
And I’m like ‘no, I’m just reading the note, I know you’re not doing anything’.
Even though the big moment somewhat descended into a comedy of errors, it’s still a hugely romantic move. Who wouldn’t want helicopter flights, love notes and champagne?
Not only that, but once the helicopter proposal portion of the evening concluded, Orlando had organised a surprise rooftop party attended by Katy’s family and friends to celebrate the happy news.
It’s all sounds like a plot point in a romantic comedy.
