According to the 43-year-old actor, he abstained from sex for half a year until he met the singer. The two first sparked romance rumors after they were seen flirting during two after-parties at the Golden Globes in January 2016.
So why did he abstained from having sex? According to him, he wasn’t happy so his surfer friend Laird Hamilton told him to try celibacy. His friend told him that if he wants to be in a serious relationship, he should try being celibate for a few months and then figure things out. Bloom added that it prevented him from thinking about partying and wondering who he will meet later. The idea also made him realize that he can have a relationship with a woman that is pure friendship. The actor added that he had never been just friends with the ladies because sex got in the way of things.
In addition, Bloom admitted trying it for just three months but he was enjoying how he was able to relate to women and to his feminine side. There was no sexual stimulation during this period, either. He added that it was insane and unhealthy and he didn’t think it was advisable.
Bloom and Perry dated for 10 months before they broke up in 2017 but reconciled summer the following year. On Valentine’s Day of 2019, the two got engaged. The two recently announced that they are expecting their first baby.
According to the actor, the kind of joy he’s feeling is something he couldn’t put into words. They already knew about it before revealing their good news to the public. For him, it has been an incredibly precious and private matter but they wanted to share it with the whole world.- Advertisement -
Their baby will be the second for Bloom who already has a son, Flynn aged 9, whom he shares with ex-wife Miranda Kerr who is married to Eva Spiegel, co-founder of Snapchat. He even asked his son the difference between him and Perry when compared with Kerr and her husband. The little boy answered that the actor and singer are the fun couple.
