Katy Perry Shares How Her Relationship With Orlando Bloom Differs From First Marriage

"We were both married before, and it’s not the same in your 30s,” the Never Really Over singer said in a radio interview.

Katy Perry opened up in a radio interview about how her relationship with fiancée Orlando Bloom is different than her first marriage to Russell Brand, saying she knows to “do the work” before she ties the knot again.

Katy explained in an interview broadcast this week with the Australian station KIIS 1065′s Kyle & Jackie O that her past relationships have informed her relationship with the Pirates of the Caribbean actor.

The couple announced their engagement in February and plan a wedding by the end of the year, according to People

“It’s important for us to do the work before we take this really big next step. Because we were both married before, and it’s not the same in your 30s,” she told the radio show.

The Never Really Over singer was married to Russell for 14 months before they divorced in 2012. Orlando was married from 2010 to 2013 to Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr, with whom he has 8-year-old son Flynn.

Katy went on to say that she and Orlando are “really doing the hard work and laying a beautiful foundation before we start to build a massive house ... figuratively, emotionally, you know.”

The couple has been fairly quiet on social media, with infrequent posts about their love affair. Katy shared a snapshot of her, Orlando, and her diamond-and-ruby engagement ring earlier this year, when the two announced their engagement.

One of the few other images of the pair on their social media is a snap of the couple at the wedding of Karlie Kloss and Joshua Kushner.

Hopefully, they’ll give us more photographs as wedding planning picks up. Congrats you two!
