Taking A Moment To Mourn Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom’s Marriage

Today we all learned of the tragic and astonishing breakup of Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom, one of Hollywood’s most beautiful couples. The two have been amicably separated for a few months, according to joint statements from their reps. Is there any true love left in the world?! Let’s review the past six years of their union.

2007: First (secret) date
Ever persistent, Bloom finagled Kerr’s phone number from her agent when the Aussie model refused to give it to him. She was seeing someone else at the time and wasn’t sure about dating a movie star, but Bloom reassured her that they could “just be friends.” That’s cute.

2008: First public appearance
The couple debuted at the Sydney races in Australia right after Kerr took Bloom to meet her parents. They remained private about their relationship, however.

2009: Social causes = love
As a couple, Kerr and Bloom supported a number of environmental causes, from clean diesel to bushfires. The two are both practicing Buddhists now, but the origins of Kerr’s faith is unclear, as reports seem to suggest without explicit confirmation that Bloom’s Buddhism influenced her into adopting the religion for herself.

2010: Confirmed engagement and intimate wedding
Kerr was reportedly spotted with a big ring in 2009 but didn’t confirm the engagement until June 2010. The two married that July, and a month later, Kerr revealed that she was four months pregnant. Later that year, she became the first pregnant model to grace the cover of Vogue Australia magazine.

2011: Birth of son
His name is quite a mouthful: Flynn Christopher Blanchard Copeland Bloom. Not only was Bloom prohibited from leaving to use the toilet during the labor — he peed in a bottle — he also felt an extreme amount of secondhand pain while watching Kerr go through an agonizing natural birth.

2012: Breakup rumors
Every celebrity couple deals with them at some point. For Kerr and Bloom, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Aniston were said to be involved, as well as — gasp! — an occasional lack of wedding rings. They steadfastly denied all the speculation, but alas…

2013: Where did it all go wrong??
It’s not really our place to spread rumors if they don’t want to divulge details, but fans will definitely miss seeing the two together and hearing about Bloom’s foot fetish. (On second thought, maybe not.) In recent years, Kerr wrote a book and debuted a successful beauty product line, while Bloom…was in The Three Musketeers. Well.
