Here's the news - take it with a grain of salt; "News of the World" sounds like a tabloid...:
Orlando Bloom proposes

Orlando Bloom has proposed to his girlfriend Kate Bosworth, according to the News of the World today.
The Lord of the Rings star has apparently presented Bosworth with a £175,000 engagement ring.
"All you see is diamonds," Bosworth told a friend. "It's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen."
The newspaper claims that Bloom was advised to keep the engagement quiet, to avoid upsetting his female fans. However, the couple are now making plans to marry next year.
A friend told the newspaper, "Kate jumped at Orlando's proposal and accepted in a second. They're making plans for two ceremonies - one in Los Angeles, where Kate is from, and one in Orlando's native England."
The couple met last year when they were both starring in a Gap advert.
So... I looked her up - she was the blonde girl in Blue Crush - a surfer girl! No wonder they hit it off together.
Orlando - it looks like you beat Billy to the punch - unless he's already engaged and just kept quiet about it. *S*
