Katy Perry and Miranda Kerr are continuing to gush over their friendship, despite the latter being Orlando Bloom’s ex-wife – and we’re all loving it.
The Fireworks singer, who is engaged to actor Orlando, presented model Miranda with an award on Saturday at the 20th annual G’Day USA Arts Gala in Los Angeles.
On the night, the 38-year-old recognised that her presenting Miranda with the accolade ‘doesn’t fit the ex-wife, new wife narrative’, but added she sees the model, 39, as a ‘sister’.
Miranda and Pirates of the Caribbean star Orlando, 46, were married from 2010 to 2013 and share their 12-year-old son Flynn together, while Katy and the actor share Daisy Dove, two.
Clearly having spent a great deal of time together co-parenting their two kids, Katy has paid tribute to her ‘sister from another mister’ in a gushing post days after the awards show.
She congratulated Miranda ‘for the honour’, and added: ‘I love our modern family’.

‘also thank u for introducing me to celery juice I just thought they were those veg stick things I stir me Bloody Mary’s with 🤦🏻♀️’ she added [sic].
The California Girls singer’s words captioned a series of videos from their night at the Gala, in which the pair appear to be having a blast together.
Fans lapped up the tender moment between the two mums, with one saying they ‘love that they’re friends’, before adding: ‘Maturity at its finest.’
Another said: ‘I love that you 2 are friends.. such a goal for any kid from a family living with separation. 😍’
Elsewhere on Instagram, a fan wrote on Entertainment Weekly’s post about the pair: ‘Women uplifting other women and fixing their crowns, regardless if they shared the same man. That’s a woman 💗we need to keep seeing this support’.

Katy went on to explain their unlikely friendship in her speech at the Arts Gala.
‘Many in the media would like to see us mud wrestle… but this is about love, and Miranda is love,’ she said.
‘I’m so grateful for our modern blended family. It’s like I gained another sister, one with whom I usually sidebar from the main family chat and agree with.’
Orlando proposed to Katy on Valentine’s Day in 2019, but the wedding had to be pushed back due to the pandemic.
The pair apparently first met while fighting over a burger in 2016, and appear to still be going strong to this day, although there has been no further news on an upcoming wedding.
Miranda has been married to 32-year-old Evan Spiegel, who co-founded Snapchat, since 2017.
