There was a very moving social media post after the dog was confirmed dead: “Mighty is on the other side. After 7 days of searching from sunrise to sunset and into the wee hours of the morning, today we found her necklace… I cried more this week than I thought possible.
Now speaking exclusively to the Mirror, Hollywood actor Orlando says in a weird way that his desperate search for the labradoodle may have proven his pregnant girlfriend, pop star Katy Perry, how much love he has in his life. heart.
He said, “It was probably good for Katy to see me go all the way to trying to find him.” Mighty was the physical and outward representation of my heart. It was a gift from Katy to me and it traveled everywhere with me and it’s going to make me cry so I don’t want to talk too much about it because I miss him a lot, a lot.
“He disappeared one evening a few weeks ago. He’s never out of my sight, but he just walked away because he’s a bit of an adventurer and I honestly thought he was just going to go for it.
“I spent seven days searching and searching because I couldn’t believe it until we found her necklace. It was very painful, but he will always be with me. And oddly enough, it probably made way for this little girl who is coming into my life soon.
He is already the father of nine-year-old Flynn with ex-wife of model Miranda Kerr, and his delighted girlfriend, Katy Perry, is about to give birth to their daughter.
“I’m super excited,” he says. “I absolutely love being Flynn’s father and I am delighted to have yet another little baby in these truly unusual times.
“It’s going to be new in a lot of ways, but I think there’s an instinctive aspect to being a father that I felt very aligned with the first time around, so I’m actually very excited about this next chapter, just like Katy. And Flynn couldn’t be more excited to have a baby sister.
Orlando, speaking via video from the house he shares with Katy Perry in Santa Barbara, Calif., Adds, “We live in unusual circumstances, but in a way I feel blessed to have a situation close and over. intimate in which to bring in a baby and raise it.
He and Katy, 35, have spoken often about the dangers of the Covid-19 pandemic and, he says, “Obviously there are a lot of protocols in place and we are all following them.
“We have narrowed down the circle of close people in our life who we are with, so it’s just a close group of trusting family and friends and at the moment it seems like the smartest thing to do. take care of ourselves, our family and friends and society in general.
“Because I think that’s the key, right?” While it is summer and people want to live their lives as normally and safely as possible, you walk away and wear masks when in crowded areas.
“Katy isn’t someone who’s afraid of anything and I wouldn’t say I am either, so it’s not something we’re afraid of, we’re just sane.”
He says he and Katy have considered the possibility of her giving birth at home.
“Everything is on the table, because it has to be. And Katy’s sister had her two children that way. At the moment, we are taking it day by day.
He remembers how he first saw Katy and how their romance began when he was a Golden Globe Awards host in January 2016.
“For the first time, I stood out on a stage to present an award, without really having anything to do except say ‘and the award goes to…’ so I wasn’t uncomfortable about that even though. I think people get nervous about what to say or should or shouldn’t say.
“So I stood on the stage, looking at the audience and there she was, just sitting among the crowd. And I remember she was wearing this beautiful pink dress and I was just like ‘Wow; I think it’s Katy Perry.
She was sitting at a table with Denzel Washington, who had just received a box of burgers.
“You’re given a lot to drink but not a lot to eat at the Golden Globes, so everyone’s a bit loose and a bit hungry,” he says.
“When I saw this box of burgers coming in I walked around and said to Denzel, ‘Hey man, can I have one?’ Denzel said, “Sure,” so I took one and winked at Katy. And that was it, ”he says.
They met later that evening at a party given by the now disgraced Harvey Weinstein.
“We had a fun evening chatting, dancing and different things. And then we embarked on this pretty remarkable journey that got us to where we are today, which by no means was a Hollywood love story you might want to hear about. He took his own course and went on his own roller coaster of ups and downs.

During his marriage to Miranda, who is Australian, he spent a lot of time in Down Under and he and Katy, he said, would consider moving there.
“I love it there and would be moving there in the blink of an eye,” he says now.
“We’re about to bring a baby to a really unique and unusual world, so who knows? I think everyone is exploring ideas and options not to exclude Australia. It’s right up there on my favorites list. ”
