Pregnant Katy Perry and fiance Orlando Bloom tour THREE sprawling estates as they go house hunting in the ultra-exclusive enclave of Montecito
They’ll be welcoming their first child together in a matter of days – and it looks like Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom will have more than enough room to raise their little one.
The couple, who got engaged in February 2019, were spotted checking out three massive properties over the weekend in the super exclusive community of Montecito, California – about an hour and a half north of Los Angeles and just 10 minutes from Santa Barbara, where the singer was born and raised.
Each of the sprawling estates Katy and Orlando looked at have an asking price of $10 million and above, are at least 10,000 sq ft and sit on several acres of land – all of them nestled in the lush rolling hills of Santa Barbara county.

Katy, 35, is expecting her first child, a baby girl, this summer.
Orlando is already a dad to son Flynn, nine, with ex-wife Miranda Kerr who he was married to from 2010 to 2013.
The 43-year-old actor recently opened up about his relationship with the Roar hitmaker, saying its been a rollercoaster of ups and downs.
They first started dating in 2016 after meeting at Harvey Weinstein’s Golden Globes party and split in 2017 before reuniting for good in 2018, and Orlando admitted the romance hasn’t exactly been plain sailing.
Speaking to News Corp Australia: ‘I wish I could tell you that it was all joyful and happy.
Architecturally striking: The third home the famous couple viewed is the most expensive of the properties at $14 million and is more Hollywood regency style
Upscale: The kitchen certainly has the wow factor with a wall and center island made of marble
Major upgrades: The 1960 home was remodeled extensively in 2008 and 2014
Opulence: The master bathroom is sleek and modern and features a freestanding tub
‘But like anything in life that’s real, it’s taken its own course. It’s gone on its own roller coaster of ups and downs.’
However, Orlando and Katy are now happier than ever with Katy recently admitting their split had made them stronger.
She said: ‘It’s really about an individual journey that makes the whole thing better. We both had to decide to go on that journey separately because it’s not my half and your half that makes a whole. It’s my wholeness and your wholeness that makes this whole thing happen.’
Katy – who was previously married to Russell Brand – said she and her fiancé have ‘gotten through a lot of hell’ together, and are now keen to keep ‘evolving’ their romance.
Speaking to People magazine, she recently explained: ‘It’s a never-ending evolution, so it’s not peachy-keen jelly bean all the time, but it’s nice to have been able to show each other all the good, bad and everything in between, and really fight for our best selves. Now, we just joke, like yeah, we still have things to work out – but champagne problems! We’ve gotten through a lot of hell.’
Mood: The interior is certainly more dramatic than the other properties the couple looked at
The home was designed by famed architect, John Elgin Woolf, and is in close proximity to the world renowned San Ysidro Ranch resort
