Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry officially announced their engagement earlier this month, and the actual proposal sounds like it was a doozy.


Perry stopped by the set of Jimmy Kimmel Live to dish on what it was like to be proposed to by Legolas himself.

Perry said the two went to dinner––and that she expected they'd head to an art show.

"But we pulled up to a helicopter," she said. She and Bloom boarded: There was champagne on hand for a toast.

"The box was in his pocket and he had written down everything he wanted to say in a note to divert -- he was gonna pull it out while I was reading it," she said.

Things went awry after Bloom tried to pull the tiny engagement ring box out of the even tinier pocket of his jacket. His elbow hit the champagne bottle in the process. It fell to the floor of the helicopter and shattered, sending shards of glass everywhere.

"And I'm like, 'No, I'm just reading the note. I know you're not doing anything,'" she said, saying that she was able to dismount from the helicopter and meet family members once they'd landed on a rooftop without further incident.

"My whole family was there, and all my friends... he did so well," she said lovingly.

You can watch Perry recall the memory below.

Take a look at that ring, by the way.

That story's adorable... and it's a pretty cute disaster. But love is love as they say.





Perry recalled that she and Bloom first fell in love after they bonded over an In-N-Out Burger at the Golden Globe Awards a few years ago.

"He stole one off of my table. I was sitting with Denzel Washington and he took it and I was like, 'Who...oh, you're so hot. Fine, take it,'" she said. "Then I saw him at a party and I was like, 'How are those onions resting on your molars?' He was like, 'I like you.' Then, you know, cut to!"

You never know, ladies and gents. The love of your life could be a burger snatcher. Get off Tinder right now and head to your nearest fast food restaurant.

Fam. Weighted blankets.

If you (or your kids - I see you, exhausted parents) struggle to stay asleep at night, weighted blankets might be a game changer for you. We got one for our 1-year-old after a week of her waking up at 4AM for baby jam sessions.

Best $31.99 we have ever spent. Ever.

As kids, we spent about 8 hours every day in school for 10 months of each year. Not surprisingly, a few useless lessons made their way into the curriculum.

Well, maybe more than a few.

Kids say some seriously whacky stuff sometimes, it can be disturbing, especially when they tend to discuss people who are not there. When the imagination is heading into "The Sixth Sense" territory, it may be time for a visit to the therapist. Now almost all of us had imaginary friends at one point in life. It is a very normal, common part of childhood. But much like the real friends in corporeal form we make in life, sometimes certain relationships are toxic and not a good influence. And separation is called for.

Redditor u/xX_ENTROPY_Xx wanted to hear about people's children's besties that they haven't laid eyes on by asking..... What's the scariest story you heard a child tell about their "imaginary friend"?

Be careful what you wish for, you just may get it. That is one of the wisdoms of life that people are always throwing around. It can be especially true when meeting your idols, finding your dream job and searching down blood relatives you knew nothing about. The DNA discovery craze has been all the rage the past decade or so. Everyone is running around contacting family they never knew they had. That can be quite the Pandora's box of family secrets and scandal.The outcomes have been all over the place. Though one of the best led to the discovery of the Golden State killer so that's a win.

Redditor u/VideoFork wanted to know who would be willing to give up some salacious tea about their blood tie discoveries by asking..... People who have taken an ancestry DNA test and accidentally uncovered a family secret, what was it?
