The move means Bloom will be in New York for several months and comes after his wife Miranda Kerr's representatives refuted reports the couple's marriage is in trouble due to them living separate lives.

A source tells the newspaper, "Both Orlando and Miranda's jobs take them all over the world, so it'll be nice for him to be in one place for a bit.

"There has been a lot of speculation recently after Miranda was pictured without her wedding ring, but this is a true commitment to spending some quality time together as a family."
