Katy Perry calls fiancé Orlando Bloom's ex-wife Miranda Kerr 'the heart of our family'

Katy Perry calls fiancé Orlando Bloom's ex-wife Miranda Kerr 'the heart of our family'

Katy and Miranda are unexpectedly besties.

Katy Perry is super close with Victoria's Secret model Miranda Kerr - which is a little surprising when you remember that Miranda was once married to Katy's fiancé Orlando Bloom.

Despite both women having history with the Pirates of the Caribbean star, there seems to be no hard feelings between these two - in fact, they're essentially besties.

Katy has so much love for Miranda that she was chosen to present the Australian model with her Excellence in the Arts award at the 20th Annual G'Day USA Arts Gala this weekend.

The 'Teenage Dream' singer posed with Miranda on the red carpet arm-in-arm on Saturday (28 January), before they headed into the ceremony.

In her speech, Katy described Miranda as her 'sister from another mister, my health and wellness guru and the heart of our family'.

How's that for mature?

Katy Perry has been engaged to Orlando Bloom since February 2019, and the couple share two-year-old Daisy Dove Bloom together.

Before they got together, Orlando was married to Miranda from 2010 to 2013, and had son Flynn Christopher Blanchard Copeland Bloom, 12, together.

After their split, Miranda remarried Snapchat co-founder and CEO Evan Spiegel and the pair have two children together; Hart, 4, and Myles, 3.

Elsewhere in her speech, Katy teased: "Some of you might be confused about why I'm introducing Miranda.

"That doesn't play into the antiquated narrative of ex-wives and new wives.

"And yes, it's true, most of the media would like to see us mud wrestle, including Evan [Spiegel], but we are here to lead by love because Miranda is love.

"And as a lot of you know, love comes in many family iterations."

Katy said that she was proud to share a family with 'a woman who is living her truth every day with grace and beauty' who is 'dedicated to her three beautiful boys, her partner, and that smoking hot bod'.

She added that, in Miranda, she felt she had 'gained another sister' with whom she can 'sidebar from the main family chat and agree with'.

Miranda has also raved about her relationship with Katy and Orlando before.

In an interview with LVR magazine last year, she recalled: "When we [Miranda and Orlando] separated, the most important thing we decided we could do is that when we make a decision, we ask, 'Is this in the best interest of our child?'"

She added: "I adore Katy and am grateful Orlando found someone he is happy with."

That has got to be the healthiest co-parenting relationship of all time!
