Orlando Bloom has revealed that he thinks he and fiancé Katy Perry don't have enough sex, since the birth of their daughter Daisy Dove last summer.

Speaking candidly in a recent interview with The Guardian, The Lord of the Rings star revealed that the engaged couple are suffering from the same plight as most new parents — explaining that since their daughter's birth last August, romance has more or less gone out of the window.

'How often do you have sex?' the reporter asked, amongst a string of highly personal questions thrown at the actor in the quick-fire interview.

'Not enough,' Bloom replied jokingly, 'We just had a baby, though.'

An answer sure to raise eyebrows with its honesty, but as he points out himself later on in the interview — 'I don’t believe there is anything that people don’t know about me.' Plus, the couple are known for speaking out candidly about their relationship.

Bloom and 36-year-old Perry got engaged in 2019, after being in an on-off relationship for three years previous, the couple welcomed daughter Daisy Dove last August and announced they were 'floating with love and wonder' after her birth; often sharing intimate pictures and videos on social media.
