Three months after welcoming their daughter Daisy, Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry are adding another member to their family. According to Entertainment Tonight, Bloom was recently spotted shopping for pet supplies with a new fluffy white dog in his arms. This news comes several months after the tragic passing of Bloom's dog, Mighty.

On Tuesday night, Bloom took to Instagram to share a number of snaps with their new pup, alongside a lengthy caption about their family's newest furry member. Admitting it was "time for a [cute dog] photo, the Lord of the Rings actor introduced Buddy, a 1-year-old "something and something mix" in the new photos. "Nothing can replace mighty man, but fostering this little guy has really filled my heart - if you've never fostered or are considering, I'd highly recommend it — it leaves two beings better off & remember what they say never judge a book by its cover." Bloom went on to express his gratitude to Tee Sorge and the Labelle Foundation for helping him find his "best buddy."
In July, tragedy struck Bloom and the family, as they discovered that their dog, Mighty, had died after going missing. "Mighty’s on the other side now. After seven days of searching from sunrise to sunset and into the wee hours, today, the 7th day ~the number of completion~ we found his collar," Bloom wrote on Instagram. "I have wept more this week than I thought possible, which has been very cathartic and healing." His message came alongside a video of him getting a tattoo on his chest in Mighty's honor and several photos of himself and his dear companion. The tattoo featured his pup's name and a heart with an ace of spades in it. In his caption, the 43-year-old noted that he "left no stone unturned" in the search for Mighty. He also issued his gratitude to the community for supporting him as he searched for his dog in the area, writing that it was "reassuring" to know that there were good people out there amidst an incredibly difficult year.
"I feel so grateful to have learned from my little Mighty man that love is eternal and the true meaning of devotion," Bloom's message continued. "I feel sure he was looking down on me whistling in every back yard and knowing that I was doing all I possibly could to respect our bond. He was more than a companion. It was a soul connection for sure. I’m sorry. I love you. Thank you. RIP my MIGHTY HEART my little fellow A [spade emojis]'s."
