LONDON (REUTERS) – Pop star Katy Perry and her Hollywood actor boyfriend Orlando Bloom have hinted they are engaged, posting a picture of the American singer sporting a large diamond-encrusted ring.

Perry and Bloom began dating in 2016 but split for a time before getting back together.

Both took to Instagram after Valentine’s Day to share the same photo, which showed part of their faces and the 34-year-old chart-topper sporting a flower-shaped ring, of small diamond “petals” around a crimson stone, against a backdrop of red balloons.

Perry, known for hits such as Roar and California Gurls, captioned her posting “full bloom”.
