Orlando Bloom is looking forward to the calm moments of raising a newborn.
The Outpost star appeared on Good Morning America (via video chat, of course) on Thursday and shared what he was most excited about when his fiancé e Katy Perry gives birth later this summer.
Seeing as the actor is already dad to 9-year-old Flynn , whom he shares with his ex, Miranda Kerr , it’ s no surprise Bloom said he can’ t wait for the “ quiet times” of parenthood when the baby is nursing… and asleep!
“ There’ s quiet times at home, just you and the family and the little one, just nursing and sort of being present, seeing where you can help and what you can do to nurture the life into the world… I’ m really looking forward to those very late nights where I will be getting and doing the breastfeed bottle thing. I’ m looking forward to that because I love those quiet times at night when the world feels like it is asleep and you’ ve got a sleeping baby. ”
We’ re sure most parents would agree!
Until then, though, the 43-year-old is enjoying this “ magical time” of Katy’ s pregnancy. He added:
“ I’ m excited. It’ s a magical time when an energy pops into the planet, which is what it feels like for me. ”
We’ re sure Katy will feel more than a pop when the time comes!
Earlier this week, Bloom gushed over his bride-to-be for how amazing she’ s handling the third trimester of her pregnancy. He told The Associated Press :
“ She’ s great… Aside from her giant belly you wouldn’ t know. She’ s a force of nature, obviously, as we all know. It’ s been really impressive. There’ s no complaining. She’ s just, like, all about it. It’ s pretty awe-inspiring to see the way she kind of handles herself. It’ s just like business as usual. ”
Katy, for her part, previously revealed that she’ s been going through quite the body transformation over the past few months. She told fans during a Facebook Live segment:
“ not been too bad. I’ ve just been a little lethargic. I’ ve definitely been leaning into gaining the weight. I’ m happy to perform that… I’ m resembling Shrek a little bit and Orlando’ s looking like the Hulk. Orlando’ s getting match and I’ m obtaining square. But , you know, it’ s all worth it. I’ m leaning into the COVID 30. ”
Seems like a magical time, certainly!
