Actor Orlando Bloom is quite low-key about dad life, so fans and followers were delighted when he shared a cute selfie with 6-year-old son Flynn – and his own dad – yesterday.
Three men and a mighty
“3 generations and a mighty right there,” Orlando captioned the adorable fur and face-filled pic, uploaded overnight. It features Orlando, his dad, young Flynn and a very cute dog.
Bloom, who co-parents with ex-wife Miranda Kerr, seems to be lapping up the summer holidays on this 4th of July week with his nearest and dearest. A devoted and privacy conscious dad, he spoke to Elle UK recently about his split with Miranda – and his desire to protect young Flynn from prying eyes and manufactured drama.
“With Miranda, there was a sense that I don’t want my son to go back through the internet where people have made up lies [about us],” Orlando said.
“Miranda and I have a remarkable relationship. We co-parent really well,” he confirmed.
You may/may not remember that Orlando and Miranda began dating back in 2007. They were engaged in 2010 and married soon after. The couple’s only child, Flynn was born in January 2011. Then, in 2013, the couple announced they’d separated and divorced later the same year.
Recently, the Pirates of the Caribbean star was linked to Katy Perry (you might have seen those photos!) but the high-profile pair broke up earlier this year – although they still appear to share a similar love for poodle pups, at the very least!
The Bloom-Love-Triangle – or possibly quadrangle – you may not know about is the one involving dogs. The “Mighty” referred to in yesterday’s Instagram post is the cute red poodle pictured, a pup that’s almost identical to Katy Perry’s teacup poodle, Nugget (see below).
The two dogs are so alike, in fact, that people think they’re the same dog! They’re not! It seems that Mighty has filled a Nugget-shaped hole in Orlando’s life, post-Katy-Perry-split, and a quick scan of the star’s Instagram proves that the pup travels almost everywhere with his famous owner.
